At first glance, this Hexagons pattern may look like Seven Sisters. With a closer look, it is evident that these blocks are filled with triangles, not the stars of Seven Sisters. It appears that the maker created a unique design. It is made with an extensive variety of printed fabrics with solid red and orange drawing attention to each of the centers. Measurements are 62" x 78". It is is very good, unwashed condition. There is an area of several inches of color loss on the border. The pattern is so busy that it takes some looking to find it. Made circa 1890.
