The quilts are large and so I hung them over the line as otherwise they would drag on the ground. I will get measurements later today. Take note of the large hexagon in the lower right corner. More on that in a minute.
This next hexagon quilt is even bigger than the one above and very heavy. Oh, how I love to watch the quilts blow in the wind.......
Notice the corners in the photo above and below. On the lower left you can see that the yellow row of hexagons is not squared off and the edge tells me that this one was made as a bedspread. It's especially noticeable in the photo below.
This is the reverse side of the quilt. Notice that prominent lime green ring of hexagons and the floral backing fabric.............
Remember that hexagon block in the lower right corner of the first quilt? Well, they are the same fabric. Funny thing is that I did not notice it until I looked at the photos!
Both of these quilts need to be laid out, photos taken, and then you could see the "whole picture" of the quilt. I thought about doing that yesterday but when I got inside with those quilts I plopped them on the sofa and went for a cool drink. It was 93 degrees outside and I felt like I'd done a bit of aerobic exercise after I came in from wrestling these quilts up on the line. Yes, the word wrestling is appropriate because I am just barely five feet tall and I have the clothesline set at about 6 1/2 feet high. That means that I have to jump up, grab for the line and then try to whip the quilt over the line. The wind made that a very interesting task today. All this led to the feeling of aerobic exercise. :-)
Hope you have enjoyed these colorful quilts. They are sort of a last hurrah of summer color as in a week or so hot summer weather will be replaced by crisp fall days. At least I hope so!! I'm going to keep hanging quilts on the line as long as the weather allows. When the snow falls though, I'll have to come up with another reason to make Mondays special. I'm already plotting what that might be. :-)
Have a great Monday!
