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.

  1. A truly marvelous piece! Thanks for the close-up photos, Sandra!
    So if the papers really would be left in the finished piece, would they remove the basting stitches AFTER quilting?

    1. You are most welcome. I really don't think the papers would have been left in - they'd be horrible to quilt through. And yes, they'd have removed the basting stitches.
