Hexagon Bowl

I had quiet a lot of fabric left over from my spiral, it only used half of the fat quarter. I decided to make a bowl from the leftovers, it was already quilted. Again I cut a manila folder pattern from a 5" hexagon, the 1/2 hexagons I used to fill in the borders of a hexagon quilt, would have made a flat piece. I trimmed about 3/4 of an inch from the angle, to make the sides flare up. It was easy to satin stitch the outside edges, then each side to the center, and finally to connect each side piece to its neighbor. It only took about half an hour of stitching, because the fabric was already quilted and ready to go. I still have a chunk of fabric left, what to make now?
