Another Month of Hexagons

Well, my friends - it's a momentous moment in the life of the Great Hexagon adventure!!!!

so - here is the Sept 1 photo....
And you can see I have completed HALF of the quilt completely!!!  In truth, I am much more than half done, but until this point, the outside sections were not done to the halfway point, and now they are!!!!   (excuse that plant part that snuck into the photo )

I am truly exhausted with this thing - it has now become a 'grit your teeth and sew hexagons" moment... 

How many are there, someone asked - WELL I AM GLAD YOU ASKED.

If I stop with this design, and don't put any kind of border on it, it will be approximately FOURTEEN THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED hexagons.  

Will I add some kind of borders?  I truly don't know... I keep waiting for the quilt to tell me what to do to finish it, and it just hasn't spoken yet...

Well, let me go get busy, I figure I have about 4,000 more hexagons to go...

color me nuts..............completely nuts...................

This is amazing! I hope this quilt makes the rounds of the quilt shows when it is done. I want to see this one up close!
