Trudging Thru the Garden of Hexes!

Yes, I'm still hexing... I have to, because I'm going to finish this quilt. All by hand, except when I get to the actual quilting... trust and believe I'm machine quilting this monster. I remember, a couple of months ago, ambitiously saying I'd be finished with it in at least two months... well, at least, I'm still doing it. I won't give up. I've got it down to an assembly line system. I make the center flowers for awhile, then I make some green hexes and sew them on. When I get bored with that, then I sew on some white hexes to the center/green flowers. I've got quite a few centers that I'm sewing greens on to now. I've measured a complete flower under my 4" embroidery hoop, so that idea is going to work out fine. I do like how it's piecing together like a puzzle. Just with these four completed flowers, I see the possibilities of this quilt!
