Well, I started putting it together this last weekend, to (a) see how much yarn is used binding it together, and (b) how many squares I have left to go.
I steamed and blocked 56 squares! Think I need another 20 or so.
I wasn't happy with how I'd sewn together my last rug, a while ago (my last few have been one piece baby blankets), so I went looking for a different way to sew my hexagons together. Jan Eaton has several suggestions in her two books, but I've gone with this one:
"BunnyMummy-Jacquie"'s method for sewing granny blocks together.
She catches the back loops of the edges of the squares together and whip-stitches them.

See? Creates a nice pattern of inner edging.
I'm two rows down, and more than likely 11 or so to go :D
