Hexagon wallhanging

This was the first really big quilt I made of hexagons. It took me nearly four years to finish it. The hexies are 1 1/4" at the ends. I cut all the papers myself, and didn't know about any precuts or standard sizes. The whole thing is handsewn and handquilted, of course.

Here you can see a close-up of the hexies. A bit difficult to see the quilting, but I quilted inside every hexagon. I made the pattern for this, and I like the way it came out. It is now my pride hanging in my hall.

I had to sew some bread basket clothes to find out what to do with the ends when I had quilted it all.
