Hexie Quilt "Chunk"
I bought this so-called "quilt chunk" from a vendor in Chicago. Saddest thing ever to see a beautiful quilt cut up like this. I hope there was some damage or staining on it that warranted this destruction! I felt obligated to rescue it as if it were a stray dog. There was a teddy bear for sale in the booth that had obviously been made from another section of this quilt - nope, I didn't buy that!
It's not really old, but that's no excuse to cut up a quilt!
So what will I do with it?
I'm teaching a class in Chattanooga in September on making small art pieces from cutter quilts, so maybe I'll make a sample from part of it.
