It's fascinating that about 200 years ago ladies (I don't think men were involved...) made beautiful pieces.
Searching on the net I found more beautiful examples. What about this site, a real online quilt-museum: clickclick. In the hexagon-section I found these beauties:

and a detail of a hexagon-flower, all those prints were already available in 1820, almost 200 years ago!
Surfing on the net I found lots and lots of other pictures of beautiful quilts with hexagons. But instead of looking at other persons' work I'd better go on with my own projects... have a nice day!
And... I will go on with the Nativityquilt, I hope later this month.
