This quilt has been my friend who followed me for a year and a half! It was my  first design using EQ7.  Very useful to balance the color scheme in that case. About 350 hexagons of 3 inches giving it 54" X 66" Basted, pieced and quilted by hand. I used freezing paper for the english method. I pieced the border by machine and FHM quilted them. To all the people interested by GFG here is my advice: cut hexagons of freezing paper with a lot of precision. I rotary cut strip of freezing paper the size I need. Then I put the hexagon drawing under the strip and trace the "V" of both side with a thin pencil and cut them with a scissor being very very careful to maintain the precision. It's the key!! Perfect hexagons make perfect seams with no holes in the corners. Another advice: take your time. GFG is not a quilt to be rush. The slow pace makes it very relaxing and zen!
