Tooting A Brand New, Antique Quit?
It's not just Helen's Hexagon quilt though, she didn't piece all of those beautiful Hexagons... you would know that if you could see it up close and personal... they're all hand pieced... Helen absolutely doesn't do hand sewing. Lucky for us that her grandmother did.
Helen remembers her Grandmother stitching away when she was still in Primary school, so the hexagon quilt top must be about 30 or so years old, that's the antique bit... A modern antique...
I hope you can see the lovely quilting... all this quilt needs now is a label telling it's story and it will be finished, good and proper.
