I'm actually still having trouble balancing it all. I have found that I am doing a bunch of hand sewing of hexagons and cutting out of the paper pieces. I refuse to pay for the paper pieces thus I cut them all out by hand!
When I last posted I shared I was using this picture as my inspiration from this site.

Currently I am 331 hexies into my quilt and I'm quite happy with how it is going.
I have it hanging up on my wall in the living room to keep it from crumpling and also getting too messed up! Plus it is so pretty!
I'm not too sure where do go moving forward. I don't know what my final size will be. One option is create multiple around-the-world hexagons with nine colorful layers around the center and the black as the border. This would allow me to bring it all the way out to a queen or king size with generous borders. On the other hand I can make the center bigger and just take it to a lap or even twin sized.
Because I am so undecided right now I've been making more solid hexies. I've made around 150 more since the end of January. It is a nice watching TV project.
Now I just need to figure what to do with this moving forward. Where do you think I should go?
