See the pattern here:
These concentric rings of hexagons were a rather common
idea in the first half of the 19th century.
Quilt dated 1804 by Rebeckah Morrison.
Collection of Natalie Norris,Virginia.
Fussy cut flowers in the alternate rings.
A black & white photo of one signed M. Clapper,
shown in the magazine The Clarion years ago.
The rings of white hexagons are filled with a
sampler of stuffed quilting. It was attributed to Maryland.
A chintz bordered version from Carolyn Miller's collection.
From Petra Prins's collection.
Maybe late-19th century.
This one's hard to make out from the photo...rings of white
alternating with red and green stars.
You can get a similar effect with a lot more work
if you alternate rings of dark and light hexagon blocks.
From Cow Hollow Antiques at Ruby Lane.
It'd be worth the effort though.
Frederica Josephson quilt, about 1850.
Collection of the National Trust of Australia.
This is the original of this impressive quilt.
Replica of the Frederica Josephson quilt by
The Fairholme Quilters Guild.
Many repros of Frederica's quilt have been made.
It's sometimes called Candied Hexagons for a 2005 pattern from Australian Quilters Companion by Kerry Dear.
