I am speaking at a guild in California next week about hexies and all English Paper Piecing. I remembered that I had purchased a couple of old quilt tops I bought several years ago on eBay. I thought I would practice quilting on them but never got around to it. Amazing that I knew where they were stored. Here is the first one.
The hexies are quite large – my guess is 2 inches on the edge. I love all the old fabrics in it. The blocks are hand pieced and completely random – sometimes identical blocks are right next to each other. I took a couple of photos of the blocks.
I need to take it to Michele who knows about old fabrics to see when this was made. It fits on top of my queen-sized bed so it is probably about 65 by 80.
