I really and truly did little to share yesterday – I know doesn’t happen often does it. I did get a little work on my hexies – not much there but a couple more short rows of neutrals to share. This is it and why do I always seem to end up with two darker colors next to each other when I don’t intend them to LOL – somehow I mix pieces up. I will need to start taking a photo of my layout and then keep the phone or ipad next to me and keep referring back to the photo. Linking to Tweety Loves Quilting today.
Seeing as I have little to show I did want to share a couple of Hexagon quilts that I have found on Pinterest – they are gorgeous and how anyone has the patience to keep it all in order for the designs is beyond me.
This quilt really caught my eye. It was made in Australia and won a Runner Up Best of Show in a contest there last year. This is made from half inch hexagons – 5 ribbons total – fantastic – click on the photo to follow the blog post it came from.
Amazing the quilts you find on Pinterest. Some will link back to the original so you can find out information about them – some don’t!
Here is an old hexagon quilt – this one is made in 1850 by unknown maker. All those papers cut by hand, all the pieces of fabric cut by hand – the work – amazing!!
This one is straight to pinterest as I have no link for it – the info provided says made in early 20th century by Albert Small, half inch hexagons – look at these colors – I would have thought it was very current. I would love to be able to copy one of these old quilts – but imagine the work – glad I ordered the half inch hexie die for my cutter LOL – maybe? ha h
Hopefully I will have something to show tomorrow.
