Loose Threads: More Antique Hexagon Quilts

More Antique Hexagon Quilts

These are the rest of my photos from the antique hexagon exhibit at the Rotary in Paducah. One of the main reasons that I wanted to attend the Paducah show was to see these antique hexagon quilts, and they did not disappoint.  

I think these were 3/4" hexagons.


The colors in this one are soft, and I love that each flower has a dark center.

I've seen this setting before....maybe it was on Pinterest.  

Three hexagons and three leaves are appliqued in a larger hexagon background.  

I thought this was an unusual setting; very colorful.





This is a lot of the exact same basket.  I think this would look neat with each flower in the baskets made from a different fabric.  

I think I've seen this quilt before either in an exhibit or maybe on line somewhere.  I love that this is a medallion quilt, and it is all made from hexagons.  

This one just boggles my mind with those tiny six pointed stars inside each hexagon.  There is lots of handwork in this quilt.  


Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

What is the name of the three hexagons and three leaves are appliqued in a larger hexagon background quilt? I bought one at a resale shop and I can't find any info on it.
