And the backside is very interesting! Have you pulled the papers out yet? 

Yup, all the papers are out.  I regularly remove the papers once a hexie has been completely surrounded.  This allows me to re-use the template AND easier handling of the top.

How nice that you have sewing groups to help you baste.  There are no sewing groups anywhere near me  so I muddle through on my own.  I have a big kitchen table I use because there is no way I can get down on the floor and crawl around!  I like your set up with the pvc pipes to raise your table.  I'm only 5 ' so I have no problems with having to lean over too much.

Wow! There are just no words--so incredible!  Once quilted, what are your plans for this beauty?  I can send you my address if you need it.

No plans.  This was just a busy work project.

But, as to when it will get quilted?  Haven't a clue.

Wow! Like, jaw dropping wow! Nice job, Shelley!!

well, flat and square is definitely an accomplishment.  But your colors and design look wonderful, at least in the little 3" square I can see.  I think lots of people would be wow'd.

Did you write down a start date on this project?  Curious minds want to know how long this "Forever Project" top actually took.

I started April 2021 .. so this Forever Project took 9 months.  :-)

I worked on it while I was a passenger on road trips and in the evenings, whilst enjoying Mr. Pirate's company & watching TV.    Not too many continuous hours but they do add up.
