Periodically, I will find something interesting that is old and post it under the Vintage Tuesday tag. In this case, I am showing you an old quilt of mine. It can’t really be called vintage as it is only 24 years old, but you get the idea.
There are a few things that you should immediately see in this piece. They are:
- another hexagon quilt – I really have done a few of them
- not my colors
- gradated to a certain extent – as much as could be with the colors I was using
- similar to the EPP stars
Here is the story:
This isn’t my first quilt, but I believe it was the first quilt I actually finished (the Sampler took me awhile, because of the hand quilting). It was finished in 1990.
I did in response to a challenge posed by one of the members of the quilt group of which I was a member at the time. We were all on board and one of the other members went to pick the fabric. It is all machine pieced-NOT paper pieced- and machine quilted as well.
Do you like that binding? I put the binding on by machine and then sewed all those miters down by hand.
It was really a challenge to hang.
