The hexagon piecing is all done by hand---and then it was hand quilted. Some of the fabrics our daughter recognizes, as they are leftovers from fabrics that grandma made dresses for her and her sisters. (That makes some of the fabrics 40 years old--from the 70's!) When referring to certain hexagonal pieces, there is always the comment: "Ohhhhh, I remember this one!" Those comments add to the value of the quilt in my eyes.
Each flower is different, each center a pale yellow, with all the flower blocks on a white background.
The quilt is on our bed during the summer months, since it is extremely lightweight. I am not sure what kind of batting that she used, but it is very thin. I just love it's light weight--perfect for hot summer nights.
You can see the hand quilting stitches in this photo. I like looking at them and imagining my mother-in-law sewing on it every night. (I'm not even sure that she sewed at night, but she was a busy lady and that's the way I imagine she spent her evenings--she loved to sew!)
Thanks, Sarah Pruitt, for this awesome gift!
