The Hexi's are made.

 I started Briar Hill quite a while ago and made the centre and then I made other things, you know how it happens. I've been sitting in the evenings making hexi's, hexi's and more hexi's and now that they are made I've 'just' to stitch them to the background. Here is the first strip ready for sewing. The white circles are freezer paper, marking the edge for turning under.

 
 
I hung each background strip up on my craft wall and then I pinned on the hexi's flowers and the rounds, mixing and matching the fabrics and colours as I went. The rounds have one, two or three layers. It will hang there while I sew each strip.
 

 
This has now become a great 'pick up and go' project.

That is a beautiful quilt and a nice way to piece, with the strips, makes it manageable.

Lovely! I'm stitching hexagons to borders right now - different project but I can relate...it is an easy 'pick up and go' too. Great pattern - have you a nice border fabric in mind?
