Vintage Hexagon Patterned Cotton Patchwork Quilt
For sale here is a authentic vintage hexagon patterned patchwork quilt, fully lined. Lovingly crafted and hand-sewn, it dates from the 1930s/1940s.
The hexagon patchwork quilts of this style was made popular in the United Kingdom by Averil Colby, a British quilt maker and historian, whose influence can often be seen in those who undertook the revival of patchwork quilt making through the Women’s Institute.
This is a striking example which measures 8 by 6 feet, is in good non-faded condition overall. There are small tears on some of the small fabric hexagon pieces, these in no way distract and are not noticeable when the quilt is laid out.
