What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do what *you* want -- follow your instincts, and have FUN.

WOW! Love the hexi in the center and the symetry of your block. I can easily see a stunning quilt made with this block.

This is wonderful. Love all the fine tuning you did (fussy cutting) to make it something special.

Thanks -- I went for order over chaos -- and then, because I'm a smidge behind -- having seen all the wonderful things people had done with their hexies -- I decided to put a hexie in the middle.

Thanks! Order over chaos -- with the added interest of a hexie in the middle! I'm a little behind, so I've been enjoying all the wonderful stuff people have been doing with their hexies.

Thanks! You should have seen me when I realized I cut one of the pieces at 6-1/4 instead of 6-1/2... Yikes!
