Value Proposition Block 2
The quilt is at the National Museum of American History. It is dated 1840-1860 and measures 65" x 74". The individual hexagons measure 1 3/8" and are made of silk. You can read about the quilt here. Isn't the pieced path interesting?
You will notice that the block in the center is heavily embroidered. Wouldn't it be fabulous to make the center block by making the black round of hexagons and then stitch them to a piece of fabric with a large floral print? I certainly think so!
For all of you moms out there I wish you a very happy Mother's Day! I hope you are spoiled rotten and that you find time to do a little sewing!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
