Day 22 Hexagon Joy

Most of my collection is from the 1800s but I do have a few quilts from the 1900s. Generally, they are interesting graphic examples that I use to show how patterns change and stay the same through the centuries.  This hexagon and its older twin are beautiful examples for teaching quilt dating by comparing the same designs through time.

This hexagon medallion is c. 1950. Scroll down to see the older twin example from about 1885.
