ANTIQUE 1840 HEXIE QUILT. . .
This lovely antique Hexie quilt still has the papers inside that were used to sew it together! It is fun to try and read some of the dates. Some of the paper is recycled letters. Cool. This quilt is very very large and due to age it is also quite fragile. Isn't it lovely?

It is still quite hot here, but I have been FMQ anyway. Finished the placemats I was working on -- will post some pics in a bit. Thanks to all who left comments and made suggestions. I really appreciate your input.
