Catan Hexagon Quilt Update #5

The

Hexes

Are

Done!!!

I was kinda in shock when I finished. I wasn't sure what to do with myself. What will I do while I watch T.V. now? Just sit there like a lazy log?? It almost overwhelmed me, keeping me from enjoying the fact that all the hexes were sewn together into a magnificent masterpiece of actual-size Catan hexagons. It includes 513 land hexes and 479 water hexes for a total of 992 total hexes!

Behold: 



I had to stand on a stepladder to take this picture. It is currently about 78 inches tall and 105 inches long.

Now I have to decide how to finish the edges/add a border, and then it will be time for quilting!! I do want it to be a bit more square, particularly I want to add some length to the top and bottom. I cannot just add more rows of water hexies because this is all the water fabric I have left: 


I actually have quite a lot of yardage of the honeycomb fabric all the way right, so I could add a solid border of that to the top and bottom, but I'm tempted to do something to try and frame what I have...but then, I can just bind it in something contrasting...but then maybe not. I'm going to let it percolate for a little while before I start cutting anything.
