I have been slow stitching on this king sized hexie project for at least 10 years I think. It's my take along, car/bee sewing.
This way I know what goes where when I'm sitting in a car or at bee, and can do the zen sewing while chatting.
In the picture above I am setting in the border blocks of the darker hexies. These run along the bed line around the whole quilt. It's taken on a life of it's own at this point, very close to completion.
Some are individual hexies pinned in place, some in groupings.
It's a way to organize it into being portable.
Don't you love a portable hand sewing project??
