1816 Hexagon's - Colonial Rose

 Dia Duit, the tally todate for the number of hexagon's for Colonial Rose are 1,816....from my calculations I am a little over halfway with the making of the quilt.....

I will need to rest my fingers.....grin....I have  quite a large hole in the top of my middle finger...I have tried allsorts off thimbles.....to no avail....the middle picture is what I have been working on recently.....the pink flowered border.....

your colonial rose looks fantastic! My middle finger suffers the most when joining hexagons too. I do as many as I can then let it recover for a bit.

Love the hexie quilt top so far. I think I may have caught the hexie fever too! :(

My goodness!!! Your hexie quilt is looking just amazing, you have really progressed very well with it, such a lot of work in it so far - this will be such a treasure when it's completed - a family heirloom in the making!

Your quilt looks so beautiful Lyn, sewing hexies is hard on the fingers isn't it! This quilt is going to be a real treasure.

B E A U T I F U L!!!
Did you ever try the thimble that is metal on the top and flexible plastic around the finger? That is the only one that works for me. Please let me know. Otherwise I can get you one!
