Notes

2016 - scroll below for idea for half hexies for edge.

April 14, 2009 - I did 9 across and 14 rows down.
And I decided to make half hexies for the sides.

April 26, 2009 The border is done and I’m very happy with the final results. This will get saved until fall when I mail it to the Cheyenne River Reservation. It will keep someone warm during those cold South Dakota winters.

I’m joined them together on the 5th round as per Moonstitches directions.

Mine measure about 5.5” from point to point or about 5.5” from one side to the other - more or less.
