1,501 HEXIES AND COUNTING....

I can't believe I've come this far!  I've been keeping track of my progress since deciding to join in on the Hexagon Charm Quilt Piece-Along at Texas Freckles..  You can follow my progress in my sidebar.  These are 1" hexies and my goal is 2,704 so I'm more than half way there.  They are somewhat sorted by color so I can see where I need more of a certain color for better balance in the overall design.  Of course, I still have to sew all of these together!  It will be 52 rows of 52 for a size of 90" x 90".  I'd say this was an "ongoing" project!!  Click on the picture for a larger view.

Yummy! I love hexies displayed this way. Don't know if they should go in a quilt or be eaten! LOL

Sorry to use your post to send you a question, but I wanted to know if you had considered having a "button" or whatever you bloggers call it where I could subscribe for your post updates via e-mail? I love getting updates that way, and would appreciate if if you would see if that could be done. Thanks ever so much! dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com
