I have always wanted to make a quilt by hand- the same way my great grandmothers probably would have done. Something that can stay in my family long after I am gone.
After much pinteresting, I decided on a hexagon quilt. There were enough tutorials online to help me along if I needed it, and it is small and portable and easy to put away if I need a break.
I also wanted to make every hexagon flower different. And at this point, I have 35 different fabrics. About half of which are from old clothing. Some are from fat quarters. Others are from fabric scraps I bought for super-super-cheap at value village. One is even from an old pillowcase that was ripped by my dogs.
I am trying to keep all the fabrics patterned. The only solid I am using is the white between the flowers.
I’ll update here on the progress whenever I feel like I have made progress worth sharing.
