Hexagons are a favorite pattern for a charm quilt......these are a bit elongated.Lots of interesting fabrics in this one....love the cat in the basket!
Nice Bird! Upside down in the quilt and I did not notice to turn it!
We see that bright blue used in many quilts here in New England. Pattern also came with red flowers or tan flowers.
At first glance, it looked like a duplicate of the blue but the patterns are different!
Here is that fabric again in the red flowers.....think it may have been Hamilton Mills in MA. late 19th century.
A little cherub next to red/blacks, also popular late 19th century.
What a nice selection of florals all in a row!!1000 Triangles are another favorite choice for Charm Quilts.
This quilt has a lovely border....would love to have flowers like that for our broderie perse quilts!!
Looks like a cheater fabric made it into the quilt and look what it is next to....there's that bright blue again!
Darling "Conversational" kittens and mice!
What's this? 1920-30's thrown into the mix!
Just noticed that I took over 200 photos of the charm quilts so there are lots more to go! Am saving my Favorites for last! Bet you can guess what those are!!!!
Below is some progress on my Hewson Medallion.....another round of triangles. Next round is a plain fabric and then it is Sawtooth Stars....36 of them.....I'll be making stars for a while! Love making them and have several fabric combinations picked out so I can sew whenever I have a few minutes!! Am using the rectangle/square method for the flying geese star point units which gives me lots of Half-Square triangle units for something mini in my future!
I love Medallions and have a couple more ideas I want to try. Sorry the quilt looks like it has border already on the right.....I don't have a design wall so had to pin it to a hanging quilt for the photo.....maybe I should learn to crop photos (if I could corral a grandchild long enough!). There! Granddaughter showed me how to crop .....so easy I should have figured it out myself!!
