Vintage Quilt

My grandmother is the reason that I started sewing while in college.  She originally taught me how to use a sewing machine and despite many hours of lessons, my first few quilts were not very durable.  Thankfully, my skills have improved tremendously after lots of practice.

During a recent visit, she gave me a partially finished quilt that was pieced at least 30 years ago to finish.  It is a multi-colored scrap hexigon design and I just cannot wait to finish it!  I love the idea of putting a modern touch on something vintage!
