1930's Hexagon Quilt

There's something about the 30's that we love.
The fabric's the colours of gelati, the furniture painted white and the gorgeous Johnson dinner ware!!
The classic 30's quilt would have to be hexagon's especially Grandmothers Flower Garden.
This quilt is all diamond hexagon's!!!
This quilt is hand pieced and machine quilted with this very cool circle pattern which is the centre photo below. Even all the white in between are hexagon's. It sure is alot of hexagons!!
They measure 7/8ths.

Some of the fabrics are a little worn and loved but most are in really great condition.
It has been washed alot, it has that very soft feeling of being a much loved quilt.
It was not trimmed straight either and it's binding curves around each hexagon!! See the first photo.
 That would be a huge job especially for us "binding lovers".
Not sure what it is about binding.....it's that final stage but one many of us put off. And there's nothing worse when we can't find our binding that's been put in that really safe place.
Hope you all had a great weekend, or a long one for those in Melbourne who are lucky enough to get Monday before our race that stops the nation. If you have a little bet good luck.
