Time to get those Morris Hexagons set together.
That's Nancy's top. Don't scorch it!
Hexagon blocks can be framed with other hexagons.
By Mrs. H.D. Moore, Stevens County, Minnesota
From the Michigan Project & the Quilt Index
Or really long hexagons
About 1900 from Cumberland County, Pennsylvania
The green pieces here are strips cut with 60 angles at the end,
like long hexagons.
For our Morris Hexathon blocks the sides would finish to 4".
The shape can be squat or long.
Godey's Lady's Book showed the pattern in
and the Ladies's Art Company sold a pattern about 1890
called Brunswick Star,
which may have been the source for this quilt
from about the same time.
The Kansas City Star called it Golden Circle Star in the 1930s.
Elizabeth Hartman's book cover
You can also add seams to the frames.
Add a triangle in the corners, about 1920.
Same concept, shorter and stubbier frame---
it's a rectangle and a triangle.
Deborah's Sushi Roll from a class with Lee Fowler.
More triple frames, vintage quilt.
Dutch Stars & Hexagons
Or piece the frame out of hexagons and diamonds as AdyQuilts did for her copy of an antique Dutch quilt.
