Another round for Mrs Holder's hexies

In Jaunary, I saw this antique quilt, and fell in love. Mrs Holder made it in 1860. I love antique quilts, and it is remarkable that there is a name and date.
I followed links to Temecula quilt Co and was certain I would make my own.
I do have another hexie quilt in progress, but it uses 1 inch hexagons, and I wanted to use smaller ones, to see if I like them.  I decided on 3/4 inch hexies since I have the fiskars punch in that size. 
They are so cute! It does take a bit longer to produce a quilt of any noticeable size, but are so fun. I keep the punch beside my desk and I punch any junk mail that I find.

Now the difficult decision is which hexagon quilt to work on during quiet evenings with TV. And whether to try an even smaller size hexagon.  sigh....

  1. I never thought of using junk mail for templates. I may have figured out a way that someday I too could make a hexagon quilt!

  7. Great hexie quilt. The hexies are a bit bigger than mine. La Passion has got 1/2" hexies.
