Slowly, but surely I think this blanket will grow.
Last picture of progress
Progress as of right now. I started working vertically because I want all the "special" hexis - the ones with embroidery - to be in the middle of the blanket. I will keep adding vertically until it measures approximate 4 1/2 feet, then I will fill in and add another vertical line of hexis on the other side. Then the plan is to keep adding to the ends until it measures about 6 feet in length. Then it will be long enough to cover both my husband and I from neck to toes. It is slow going sewing these together with the mattress stitch, but I really like the result.
