Do you know how cool it is to know that someone “GETS” you?! You get me! You know just the thing that is going to bring a smile to my face and inspiration to my soul!
Yesterday Judy D sent me this picture of the most incredible mini-hexie quilt ----and she is right. I would have LOVED to see this in person, but they probably would have thrown me out only to find myself next in line in the Chain Gang --- for touching and drooling on the quilts at the show!
But take a look at this….could YOU resist the touch? I don’t think so---
Close up…see the fussy cutting going on??
SEE the finger to give you an idea of the SIZE here?!
Do you want to know the story?
((And please note that this is HAND QUILTED..you can see it in the round of pale green hexes ---))
Today we went to a quilt show and this is one of the first quilts I spotted. Itty bitty teeny tiny hexies. Evidently this is the quilters first quilt!
Hand pieced mini hexies, done in the 1990s. It was amazing and I thought of you-maybe you could do this for your next project. LOL
If I remember right, the lady said over 12,000 pieces. Love all the fussy cuts. Pretty fabulous.
Judy D in WA1990s makes it almost “vintage!” And some of those 1990s fabrics look pretty fabulous ----cut VERY VERY SMALL! :c) Come to think of it, that sea foam green pathway DOES shout 90s doesn’t it? I heard it’s a color that is coming back into vogue ---let’s hope not!
But then again -- it might be a way for me to finally use up the original 1990s sea foam greens that are still IN my stash -- along with those peach calicoes!
Thank you for the inspiration, Judy – and for allowing me to share it with all the other hexi-holic quilters.
I am SEW INSPIRED!
