Angela’s Hexagon quilt….

Forty seven years ago my cousin Angela set about making a hexagon flower quilt with scraps from family clothing.

There’s every kind  of fabric from that era that you can think of in this quilt.

A glorious array of colours and textures.

It quilted up lovely. Nice soft all over in the centre:

The wide border was a perfect place for some swirly dwirly quilting.

It was a pleasure to quilt this up for my cousin.
