Well, it has taken me almost a full year, but I have finally finished putting the hexagons together!
The original piece that was handed down to me was about 500 pieces. I have added to it for a total of 2964. It is currently 92in x 100 in. I plan to put a solid border around it, probably red, just to square it off. Also, I think it will look better because the piece is just so 'busy' looking.
If you look at the center, the lighter fabric is the original piece.
Thank you for looking!
