Hexagons off to Queensland.

A few months ago I got an e-mail from my friend Nicky who is travelling around
Aussie with her DH. While staying with her sisters in Qld they went along to a sewing group and found out about the " The Great Hexagon Challenge". The aim is to get as many people as possible to make hexagons and a group of 5 ladies are putting them together to make the BIGGEST Hexagon Quilt in the world and have it recorded in the Guiness Book of records.They will be displaying what has been completed up to date at the Queensland Quilters Exhibition in Oct 2009.
These are the ones I have made so far and sent on thier way today along with Loris's. (another patch lady)
I am very new to making hexagons but I am enjoying the hand stitching but do not think I would make a quilt for myself.
