Victorian Hexagon Quilt

Almost a month ago Barbara Brackman posted about a hexagon quilt she came across in a magazine. It made her curious enough to look for more of the similar quilts and even make one for herself.

I got pretty curious myself reading her post and drafted blocks for different versions of the Victorian quilts. You can find the tutorials to draft your own block on my blog.

I must warn you that this is definitely not a 'quilt in a day' kind of project. My method also requires inset seams but they are not terribly difficult to do.

I have made more blocks since I took this picture and currently working on the side pieces. Barbara and I are hosting a quilt-along for this quilt. If any of you decide to make this quilt, I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Brenda, thanks for inviting me to post here. I love scrappy quilts myself and it's always nice to see what everyone is doing with their scraps and strings.

Thanks, Brenda!
Barbara and I are pen pals. I have only 'met' her through our blogs and emails :)
