Houston Part V

As long as you don't mind I will just keep these coming every so often.

This Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt was a sight to behold!
The hexagons are less than an inch in size.  As someone who is working on a GFG quilt and knows how long it takes to sew these by hand, I am in awe.

Made by Noriko Kido, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan
She says about this quilt:
"I love quilts of simple patterns. The hexagon is especially interesting for me. This wonderful world is composed of many colorful pieces, which are cut from only one hexagon template."

The quilt is hand pieced and hand quilted.

Oh my goodness!...all I can think is how long this whole quilt takes - from making the hexagons to this! How amazingly patient she must be!

I want to leave a comment on this but I don't know what to say! I can't believe how tiny those hexagons are, and all that hand work. My hands are tired just imagining it.

Thanks so much for sharing this! I love the process of hexes...but the traditional designs make me yawn. This makes me re-consider pulling out those paper templates!

Whoa. Holy. Whoa.

That is impressive. And I think it's the quilter's equivalent of reading War and Peace.
