Hexagons at the Festival of Quilts 2019

My very first experience of patchwork was with hexagons. I must have been about 6 or 7, and I made it with offcuts from my rag doll’s dresses. I still have the dresses, and Beth still watches over my desk in one of them.

But after about 40 years, the cushion was past mending. It had a lot of wear. It classic flower design seemed very grown up.

But these pictures from the Festival of Quilts 2019 at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, really show what can be done with a hexagon.
