Patriotic Quilt- “American Pie”

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.
