what an amazing accomplishment!  Any thoughts on quilting?  This one really should be in a show, my dear!

It looks great!  Love the piano key border!  Did you end up handsewing the piano keys?

Partially.  I marked at the short end where the hexie needed to stop.  I machine sewed the long straight seam up to that mark.  This gave me a set of piano keys with an opening on one end.  In that open seam, I wrapped the fabric around the hexies so I could hand sew them to the contrast border hexies. 

There are a few misplaced fabrics but that's  OK.  I think I'm happy with the final result even though the execution didn't turn out what the vision was.

A show??? Honestly,  there's nothing special about this top.  No, wait... I'll admit that *is* exceptionally flat and square!

wow...

really like how it turned out.

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

Agree it should be in a show.

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.
