    Just finished putting on the borders ...this is a fun quilt to make, changes the way you see fabric...makes you look at everything and think, "How would that look as a OBW!?"

    Stunning quilt. It's great fabric for the OBW, and has given you lovely range of colours - like your placement, and the borders you've done just set it off perfectly.

    Maybe this isn't where I should ask the question, but if you are sewing hexagons, are you working on inset seams, or are you sewing three of the triangles together and then, using a design wall, setting them in strips for final stages of putting it together?

    To omak....you don't actually sew the hexagons together. You fist make "half hexagons" Once you sew all the halves together you start laying them out in rows, so there is no inset seam. There is alot to the placement, looking, moving, organizing the color. I put mine on the back of a vinyl tablecloth and waited until I was sure of the placement...even now there are a few I would tweak if it wasn't sewn together. Taking a photo of it helps also, identifies those "sore thumb" blocks!
