Do you know of one of these types of quilts lurking in a cupboard somewhere? An English Paper Pieced quilt top, featuring fabrics from yesteryear, shoved in the back of a cupboard waiting for the day when it will be quilted? Well, for Rosemary, the day came this summer (in fact, I have done quite a few this summer...). This quilt had been with her for 25 years and she had picked it up in a Charity Shop, so it had a bit of history. There were lots of Laura Ashley gems in this one and the few paper pieces still left in included cardboard from a vintage Kellog's Frosties packet. It was huge, 114" x 84", which required the extra wide wadding I supply and to bring it closer to the finish, Rosemary took advantage of the Fabadashery Longarm Quilting binding service.
Rosemary's HUGE Hexagon Quilt
For the pattern Rosemary chose a Floral block pattern, from my Art and Stitch catalogue. This is a block pattern, so we were able to flip and mirror the blocks to create our own pattern.

If you know of one of these hexagon quilts sitting in a cupboard, pull it out and get in touch to see if Fabadashery Longarm Quilting can help to finish it.
