    Whirling Hexagons Quilt

    Just completed this lap quilt. The pattern was in the latest "Quilters World" Magazine spring 2015.
    Its called Whirling Hexagons. I went through my stash and did every one with a different material.

    Very nice. I like how you left the edges irregular; I think a border would have detracted from your nice bright colors. What a fun quilt!

    Very unusual pattern. But, it is very pretty. I love all the bold bright colors.

    My grandmother made one like this in the 1930s. It was from a pattern in The Kansas City Star in those days. She used fabrics from my dad's and aunt's clothes along with purchased red yardage. She was a needle woman of note, but this first quilt pattern convinced her she wasn't cut our for quilting. Of course, trying to get all those points flat and even while hand piecing was pretty challenging for her first (and only) attempt at piecing. She gave it to me as a flimsy more than 30 years ago. I found a hand quilter who finished it, plus did a bit of repair. It is one of my most cherished possessions.

    Sorry for the hijack, but it brought back memories. Your quilt is lovely.

    Very pretty and different. I think I would have left the ends like the sides so it'd be the same all around.

    I just saw this pattern somewhere. You did a great job with the selection of your fabrics.
