3036 Hexies later



As many of my blog friends know, I started this quilt in 2009 and with the help of all my cyber friends it has became a charm quilt. Each hexie measures 3/4inch, about the size of a dime and as of today it has 3036 hexies.
The hexies you see on the ironing board are the ones I have left to put on and then I need to buy scraps of fabric and request my cyber friends to gift me their 1.5x1.5 inch squares.
I always return the favor somehow with a little surprise.
If you are interested in helping me , please email me.
I do not want to stop yet because I would like to make it into a larger quilt at least a lap quilt.
I only work on this quilt on the road so the process is slow.

I can send some scraps. Do you want them precut? Any specific requirements?

I've been watching your progress. I like doing small things but this might just be too tiny for me!
