This is an extraordinary, bold and original interpretation of a Honeycomb, or Hexagon pattern quilt. Graceful wreaths and vining borders are brilliantly offset against the dominant central pattern. Illustrated in The Quilt Engagement Calendar when I last owned it: I have recently re-purchased it from a collection. Very well pieced and appliqued. Finely cross hatch quilted. Unwashed condition; several area of light discoloration are visible in thumbnail photos. Could be washed and removed, but I prefer that never washed feel. Measures 82" x 101"; Circa 1870. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin.
