Now that I know I'm working through on my Starlet GFG (grandmother's flower garded) Quilt..... I put the fabric and time aside for the 18-hexagons that will be needed in a bone/beige colored fabric for the outer edges --- five will be needed to enclose a single star!!! This outer/inset in fairly easy to remember at 1=center, 6=hex, 12=hex, 18=beige hex !!!
I've regrouped again.... in a carrying case for the making of this take-along quilt.
