Many members of our quilting community have a special fondness for vintage quilts. We also know many of you treasure good scrap quilt patterns. So, what could be better than an antique quilt pattern perfect for scrap quilting? Check out this week’s Friday Freebie, Honeycomb:
This pattern dates back to the 1880s. The quilt was created by an unknown maker in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania and features many unusual prints of the era, plus a yummy true cheddar border. Your version can become an encyclopedia of fabrics from your own time, and the border color is totally up to you!
This pattern uses the English paper-piecing method, so it’s a great handwork carry-along project. It may take a lot of time to stitch the 1,229 hexagons needed for this 67″ x 78″ beauty, but it’s well worth it! You’ll have a one-of-a-kind vintage-inspired quilt everyone will love.
