Here is some very good information on the history of hexagon quilts. http://www.womenfolk.com/quilt_pattern_history/mosaic.htmMy husband got me a new quilting book for Christmas, Quilts from Grandmother's Flower Gsrden.
It has a lot of good information in it and I can't wait to make something from it!
I had told ya'll Monday that I was going to make a quilt for uncle. I cut all the pieces out yesterday. My mom called me this morning to let me know my uncle passed away last night. I had planned to make his quilt last year. If you are planning on making a quilt for someone, be sure to get it made, you might not have another day to finish it.
