I am more than half way finished sewing together Hexy McQueen. It is enormous. I can only lay out half of it in my living room at one time. That being said, here is a portion of my Lovely.
I am realizing a couple of things about hexagons. List time!
1. They are addictive. I have two more hex projects in the works (okay, just in my brain, but I am really close to starting).
2. They are incredibly difficult to sew together. You can't sew in the seam allowance (which in the case of quilting is a scant 1/4"). This makes it so that your cutting and 1/4" seam allowance must be exact or you will get some pulling.
3. They are so stinkin' pretty!
4. Not really about hex's but just in general: If you are gonna make an enormous quilt, 22" finished blocks are the way to go. Seriously! I only have 17 full hex's, 6 half hex's and 8 quarter hex's! Not too shabby.
At this rate, I will have the quilt top completed during tomorrow's nap time. Then to get it basted and off to the long arm!
