Treasures from the Newark Museum- Hexagons

One of the wonderful benefits of attending the Annual seminar of the American Quilt Study Group is getting special access to amazing quilt treasures. We saw many at the Newark NJ Museum. Here is one of my favorites. Small scale, fussy cut, hexagons more than 200 years old! Scroll down to end of post to see the display card and read about this wonderful textile.

New Year Blues- Ocean Waves

Got the blues, I do, right here! Can't go wrong with 1890s Blues. The end of the century was the heyday for blue fabrics in a variety of colors and patterns.
