Hexie Dragon!


I have been watching the progress of this quilt recently...WOW, is all I can say!  Gail, from
I Think Sew made this amazing hexie quilt.  Here's what she had to say about it:

Hi!  
I've been watching your blog for a while now and am super excited to share something with you... I recently finished a big hexie quilt project... my Dragon Hexie Quilt.  I started it in Oct 11 and just finished this month Feb 2013!  There are 4,132 1/2" hexies making the total size of the quilt 72" wide by 54" tall.  I free-motion-quilted the horizontal lines and woodgrain pattern in the background, and used french knots to quilt the actual dragon.   I made it in the Chinese year of the Dragon for my husband who is a wood dragon in their astrology.  
Anyway, felt like sharing!  

Did you catch that???? 4,132 hexies? And only 1/2 inch???

Thanks so much for sharing, Gail!  Absolutely fabulous work!!!!!

Do you have a hexie project to share? Let me know!
