OK, so I’ve come across Barbara Brackman’s blog, which has provided some very interesting reading – well worth a look, if you get a chance.

Anyway, she has a couple of interesting posts about hexagons . . . and I was just blown away by a picture of a quilt by Mr Albert Small’s quilt from about 1935 . . .

This is his first quilt. The hexagons are 1/2″ and it took him 14 months. Not bad for a first attempt!!!

It seems he was quite industrious when it came to hexagons (among other things) and the NUMBERS, the MIND-BOGGLING NUMBERS had my head spinning.

Check out this link for an interesting story about a man who rose to the challenge of his wife’s quilting group!
