Make 625 hexagons in desired colours, this throw has up to 10 hexagons in each colour.
To make it easier to sew this throw together, separate in colour groups of 25 hexagons each and hand sew each panel together, checking colour placement by setting out and pinning together before sewing blending colours from panel to panel.
Sew in 5 rows of 5 hexagons in each panel using matching sewing thread. Once 25 panels have been made, sew these panels together in 5 rows of 5 panels.
Note - The idea of this throw was to make it with relatively random colour groupings but with some thought to blending and joining the colours together. The colours were set out before sewing each panel and checked as to how they would sit with other panels so they would blend and have a smooth transition from one colour to another butstill keeping a style that is free-hand.
