This miniature hexagons quilt is quite astounding on several levels. It has the smallest hexagons I have seen. They measure about 3/4" to a side. The fabrics range from the 1830's to 1870's. The quilt is in mint, unwashed condition. Use of the red circles is terrific in creating a focus. Quilts such as this with thousand of pieces were often made in the late 19th century for competitions at fairs. I hope this got the blue ribbon it deserves! Measurements are 71" x 83".
