Loose Threads: Antique Hexagon Quilts

Antique Hexagon Quilts

Here are my photos from the antique hexagon exhibit at the Paducah Rotary.


This one was my favorite.  It was a strippy quilt using all hexagons.  


A close up of the strippy quilt.  If you can zoom in on this photo, you can see that the white in between the strips are individual hexagons.  


These antique quilts were in great shape.



This is another interesting setting.  


Here is a close up of the center.  It's a medallion surrounded by lighter hexagons.










I think these were 1/2" hexagons.  








We only had an hour to see all of the quilts and vendors inside the Rotary.  This is where Cherrywood fabrics have their booth.  I had to look and power shop.  More tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I loved this exhibit and blogged about it too. I haven't ever attempted a hexi quilt, but I sure admired all the work and thought that went into these. They were worth the trip to Paducah!

From what I have seen so far from you I am beginning to think Paducah was all about hexies this year! *LOL*
Some very imaginative designs that I have never seen before!

I really liked the hexie stripes, too. As a lover of EPP and hexies, I loved this little show.

Wow - how exciting to see so many hexagon quilts in one place. Each one is so interesting and different from the traditional GFG! Love the first one!
