A hex or a curse

this quilt has been somewhat of a curse for me ... i enjoyed doing the handwork of english paper piecing but the sheer volume of hours to complete this quilt soon became daunting ... i put it away and soon the weight of another UFO started to weigh on me ... i hauled it out with a plan of sewing it on a background and calling it finished ... there was one large hexagon which was missing ... oh well i said i will figure out what to put in that large hole ... about this time i mentioned it to my group of new quilting friends and Melissa said " i started that same quilt but i am never going to go any further on it perhaps one of my hexagons will work ... and amazing she brought them over and one fit in the hole with just a bit of work ... 

you can see the added hexagon in the upper left hand corner... thank you Katja Marek for the experience...
