My Quip – Top of Hexi-Abuelita Quilt Completed

Good Day,

The top to our new quilt, Hexi-Abuelita has been completed.

To create a quilt at approximately 58” (147 cms) wide and 82” (208 cms) long 718 half-hexagons were cut to create 359 whole hexagons. The cuttings are of fabric of a collection a grandmother’s shirts and skirts.

The choice of the back will be in keeping with a shade found in the multifaceted construction of the top of Hexi-Abuelita.

And a couple more images.
