There is a facebook group called Long Journey quilts that Jeanna Kimball started. These quilts definitely fit in that category. The possibilities are endless and the texture created between the seams and the quilting makes you just want to snuggle up in one.
Mine is actually a new quilt (2008). My MIL made it for my daughter as a graduation present. But she has made several of these - all by hand. She just likes the different variations possible with the hexagons.
Thanks for sharing your basket quilts PQ and Diane! The are wonderful. So much work in these quilts. I was thinking the same thing Handstitcher they didn't have the convenient appliances we do today. I bet they looked forward to their stitching time as a quiet relaxing restful time after all those chores they did daily.
Wonderful quilt pieces, Diane! Are you the original maker or taking over a UFO? So much variation in these hexagon basket quilts. Amazing work!
here's mine what there is of it!
These are amazing quilts. I don't know if I have the patience for them. I am in awe.
I really enjoyed seeing the pics of those lovely quilts today. I have seen that pattern numerous times. It was more than likely originally shown in the Kansas City Star newspaper, but I don't know that for a fact. I think the reason a lot of people do English paper piecing is it helps if your fabric is not straight on the grain, but I agree that it adds extra work.
Lovely quilt photos! What a treasure from your MIL, Praire Quilter! A very talented woman. When you think of the work women had to do in those days, the amount of time consuming needlework produced is mind boggling.
The quilt really is prettier in person than in the picture. More vibrant colors, even though they are primarily pastels.
