TBThursday ~ Vintage Hexies

I had totally forgotten this quilt until I pulled it out of the closet. I remember piecing it while flying to and from Paris to look for housing in August of 1997, the very week that Princess Diana died. We did find a house to rent that week and we lived outside of Paris for a bit over two years.

The fabrics are all vintage and the border is from a feedsack.

The hexies finish at 1 1/4 inch per side.

I machine quilted it on my 1955 Singer 201.

It finished at about 30 by 38 inches.

Have a great day!

    Isn’t that fun to relive a day or week of your history by just seeing the quilt you were working on? I have so many that have great stories/memories of the time period I was working on them. It was fun to hear your story.

    Adorable little quilt! I love those colors together!

  3. Oh, those fabrics are so sweet! I love this mini and of course always enjoy seeing your little machine as a photo prop. 😀 She’s a sweetie too. I will never forgive myself for not buying one of these at an auction that had a collection of DOZENS of toy sewing machines for sale in every color under the sun. What was I thinking????

  6. Such fun to see these quilts, Katy, and to hear the stories or memories that go with them. You have had a very interesting journey, with all the places you have lived and things you’ve experienced. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Timeless! I recognize some of the feedsack prints in my stash. The memories that flood out when thinking about its stitching, a time, a place, a smell, a season all come back to you in an instant!
