UFO really old finally close to a finish

I have been carrying around these hexie's forever. having trouble matching the muslin so decided enough finish it into something. I was torn between just over looking the color of the scraps i was using or finishing it.
currently about 50 things to finish!! Why the guilt over all the sewing?? i inserted a small green faux cording peice on the outside net to the binding. it helped brighten it up. after it was machine quilted i decided it needed something. Started adding hexie's to the outside border so not done after all. it will take quit a few but i like it so much better with the bright fabrics added to the outside border.

still have to add feathers to green sashing on two sides--at least the quilting is almost done.

added these pictures showing these very small EPT hexie's. i just love how small they are. Trying to decide how big to go. or make a small quilted peice. All blue fabric. we will see as one takes quit  bit of time. another long term project.

i soaked this in the bathtub and added a new binding. 
also repaired the back as much as i could. could not bear to throw it away.some of the flowers need mending but the back is very worn. will enjoy it for what it is.
