Braden, did you ever start this bedspread? The advantage to a pattern like this is being able to do one hexagon at a time, making it seem like a smaller project. My mom used to make similar bedspreads with tiny thread all the time. I never appreciated all that work when I was a kid. She always wanted us to enjoy what she made and not ever worry about "wearing it out." Sadly, I didn't learn to crochet until after her death. I think it helped. She lived in central MS too, by the way.

I actually have bookmarked this one as a "someday to crochet" dream project (along with a fancy knit christening gown).
Incidentally, I showed this to a friend who is sort of immodest about her crochet abilities (I'm all for horn tooting, but not bragging). She said, "It's ugly, but not too hard to do. I have some patterns you should look at before you try this one."
I don't appreciate patronizing or saying something fakey nice if you dont' want to be honest, but sheesh, have a little tact!
I love itthough. I wonder if the rosette part could be adapted to be flatter tho?

I don't know about changing this pattern but there are a LOT of pinwheel patterns out there without the flower in the middle if you want to use thread. Before started knitting all i did was thread crochet and I still like working with the smaller yarn. I have never crocheted anything that large. It look like fun! Lots of time but fun.

Wow, that's beautiful. It looks so intricate. I can never imagine making something like that myself... but I'd love to own one. LOL

bed coverings
That is one nice pattern. I recently inherited from my sister a bedspread that my mother started eons ago and never finished. My sis gave it to me to finish and keep. It is an afghan square pattern and I don't know how I will finish it yet. My only problem is getting more of green thread as I have no idea of the size just that it was Coats and Clark thread. I plan on asking them for help and go from there. It should be fun. My sister doesn't crochet or knit but quilts and she finally decided to give it to me 18 years after our mother passed away. It will be part of my MOM and me.

daisymae,

If your looking for bedspread patterns to crochet or knit, you might try
crochetpatterncentral.com knittingpatterncentral to name just two. Good luck with those, they seems so overwhelmimg. I don't know if I could ever do something like that.
