The World’s Biggest Hexagon Quilt – again

Since I have contibuted (in a very small way) to this project, I got a letter from the organizers today with information on the progress.

The quilt is now finished, and is awaiting verification from the Guinness Book of Records.

The photo above shows only part of the quilt hanging on a fence. Go to
