I recently finished a hexagon quilt pieced by hand using the freezer paper method of preparing the fabrics, (see the picture below). This quilt had about 950 little hexagons (3/4″ on each side) which were fussy cut to capture the fabric motifs and create a kaleidoscope effect for the blocks. Don’t ask me how long it took to piece it, all I know is that it took a long time! The quilt had two layers of batting, cotton on the bottom and wool on the top. This combination gave a really nice puffiness to the quilt which emphasized the quilting designs. It was entered in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo quilt exhibit for 2018.
