Isn't this a BEAUTY!!! The design is not typical of most hexagon quilts of this vintage - stars and flowers both! It's a scrap lover's dream, with every color in the rainbow, plus some black. And it is all beautifully hand quilting around every single hexie. That's a LOAD of hand work!
Here are some close up shots:
Magnificent, isn't it? And no damage anywhere.
I've made a recent decision to start a hexagon quilt collection - I want several older quilts to show along with my modern quilts when I speak to groups. And this is my first acquisition! I adore it! It was a real find - I don't have the budget to spend much on old quilts but this one was very reasonably priced.
I'm in total LOVE with it!
