I was very lucky yesterday to buy a gorgeous Victorian Hexagon Patchwork quilt from a lovely lady I buy from regularly. She usually has the most gorgeous eiderdowns for sale but this time I came away with this beautiful hexagon patchwork....and three eiderdowns...well I couldn't leave them behind now could I?
It is just exquisite, and fairly large.
It must have taken hours of painstaking work with all those little hexagons to piece together.
There is only slight damage to a couple of the hexagons otherwise it has weathered well, obviously being stored away safely. I love how people were so thrifty making beautiful quilts out of all their little scraps of fabric.
It will probably being staying awhile to be coveted and then I may part with it if I can bear to!
I am busy updating the website today and also have two fairs to get ready for, Northampton Vintage fair on the 17th of September and Totnes Nostalgic Mix 3 on the 24th of September. Hope you are all having a great week.
