Hand Pieced Hexagon Star Quilt

My sister, Rita from Red Pepper Quilts has just blogged her beautiful Mother In Law's Hexagon Star Quilt.  I had the pleasure of quilting this quilt for her MIL so thought I would share this quilt with you as well.  Rita has given me permission to show some of her wonderful photos of this quilt.

Jan has spent some three years hand-piecing this quilt - her piecing is incredibly accurate.  Much of the quilt has been fussy cut, resulting in some great stars.

An all-over feather design was quilted, however, this quilt is truly about the magnificent piecing and fabulous fabric selection rather than the quilting.
 
I have quilted a similar quilt for Maree, a friend of Jan's which was blogged here previously.  Jan is obviously part of a very talented group of quilters.
