Oh you got me there - I can never pass a hexagon quilt without stopping to have a proper look. Lucky Glynis!


So pretty! I love the bottom edge and can't even imagine how hard that binding must have been to stitch on.

Hexagons in this setting have been made for about 200 years and they still work. What a great quilt.
