I started this journey in July 2010. I cannot remember where the main inspiration came from, but I do remember looking at Bonnie Hunter's Hexagon quilt and thinking it was time to start one!
I spent many hours sitting just like this using a borrowed Hinterburg frame. The hoop was 29" and too big for me to work with, but the weight of the quilt itself made it hang taut enough for me to work quite well. I would just drape it and get to work!
Many, many, many hours later, here it is! This was a really rewarding journey to say the least. I look forward to more hand piecing projects in my future!
...maybe even something like this quilt I saw on Bumblebeans blog! This is an antique quilt in a museum somewhere. I am trying to find the link to get more information.
