Minature Scale Field of Diamonds Hexagons Quilt(Item: Q-558)
This small scale hexagons quilt with pieces only 1 inch in diameter is a labor of love made back in the 1920's or 30's. This pattern is called a Field of Diamonds. Think of the many hours that went into cutting and then hand piecing all the hexagons and then to quilt it by hand. There is also some machine quilting on the border and a small area on one side, unsure why. Maybe the maker was ready to get finished and that was the quickest way or possible she or he,, just got a new sewing machine and wanted to show off the work by adding it to the quilt. We'll never know. The quilt is in very good condition. A colorful quilt with many colors used and some of the fabrics look to be feedsacks. How the quilter coordinated the colors using prints and solids. For the binding the back was brought forward to the front and machine stitched down. The size is quite generous with it being 81x91 inches, so it could work on some doubles or queens or even lay on top of a king bed. This is a Kansas quilt.
