Just before Christmas, I acquired this lovely vintage quilt top. All hand pieced 1'' hexagons. It's HUGE. Close to 100'' square. It's only drawbacks are:
1. It needs to be quilted (which means I need to find a suitable backing material!)
2. The faded spots on the fold lines. I love the effect it gives in the parts between the flowers, but not so much on the borders. I'm hoping that quilting will give the borders a new perspective though, because it would be nice to leave it the size it is!
It all seems to be in excellent condition apart from the faded parts. Material seems good and strong, and I can't wait to see it in a finished quilt! Just love a good hexagon quilt!
