Besides hand quilting and working with hexagons I did accomplish getting the backing washed, cut and sewn together. I also got the binding cut, and I made a pillow case to go with the quilt. The main pillowcase fabric is the quilt background fabric, the accent is the binding fabric. It's all on a hanger together waiting for the quilt to be taken down from the shop design wall.
Boy, do I have a lot to learn about pictures and camera's. I understand the background fabric in the two pictures does not look like they are the same, but trust me, they are.
