you are correct, you have to look in wedges rather than quadrants.   The seam in the diamonds goes either all up and down or side to side in each wedge.  I finally had to just check those seams to figure it out.

Cute!  Look at all of those flying geese!

Such a happy quilt!  And what an accomplishment!  That's a lot of EPP - a lot of time spent hand piecing.  I really like it.

Just beautiful!  That's a lot of hexagons - do you know about how many it took!  All I know, is it's a lot.  I'm working on hexagons right now and it's taking "forever" to make them into a quilt.  Then you enhanced it even further with that pretty applique border.  It's amazing!

Funny that they all come out alike but that one side.  It's a beautiful quilt.  I might not have even noticed that if I wasn't looking after your post.  See you in a couple days.

I am happy to say that finished the "Hubris 2" EPP clamshell top that I brought for a show-n-tell to the Reteat.

This time the EPP clamshells were PROPERLY stitched together ... MUCH better (duh!) than the first version (which I am still working on).  I finished 99.9% of the vine & leaves applique on the road trip to Phoenix and  worked on prepping the 3/4" hexies for the flower applique around the border while at the Retreat.

I completed all the hexie flowers just tonight .. so .. YAY!   Another top is done.     I'm rather pleased with the way this one looks and turned out.

You should be proud.  That is one gorgeous quilt top!

That came out really nice. I was watching you prep the hexis and you are really fast and efficient at that.

Wow, that was fast!  Beautiful! 

my sister had purchased a panel, jelly roll & layer cake and asked if I would make a twin size quilt for her grandson.  It is very nice (expensive) fabric, much nicer than I usually purchase for an entire project.  I'm trying to use up every bit of the fabric without purchasing more - I did have to add the gray sashing, and plan to use the same for binding.  It matches relatively well.  Definitely not my typical colors, but it was fun to try and figure a pattern and what to cut to utilize the available fabric.
