Hexie Quilt Top

At long last, here it is.  Some quilt stats and fun facts:
Size:  82" x 72"
Started: 2011
Top Finished: 2013
Hexies:  3500 ish
(I did the math and came up 3487, my husband came up with 3500 so we must be in the ballpark!)
All hand made, including paper hexies and hand sewn. 
The name of each of my family members is in the quilt. 


The ultimate "I Spy" Quilt

Sewing in the final hexie, I'm looking pretty happy!


I had sewn that last piece in last Saturday, then discovered 9 more hexies needed on the border...  truly the never ending project!

PHEW!
