    That would be alot of work, I did one years ago and not nearly that many..and that was alot of work....it looks great!

    What an amazing amount of work. I once started one myself but sadly never finished. It was much bigger hexagons though.

    This would make a great entry for the current theme of 'Hobbies' in the 'The Monthly Theme Group'.

    I think this is a great image !
