While at the Jacksonville Quilt show this weekend , lots of beauties were displayed. But the one quilt that received many many comments as I walked around was the top postage stamp quilt. Each square measures 1.5 inches and they were individually hand stitched. There were 2500 in the quilt I am showing you.
As many of you know I had 3000 -1.5 inch squares ready to make a postage stamp quilt but because the 1.5 inch squares came from several swaps well when I started the piecing process, they did not sew up evenly.
Hence was born my hexagon quilt. I now have 1302 hexies on it and barely measures 20x20 inches.
Well the postage quilt generated comments like " That woman had to be insane" . "who in their right mind would work with such tiny blocks" On and on it went.
So my cyber friends, what will be said about me when I complete my hexie quilt made of 1/4 inch hexagons and display it at a quilt show??
