Hexagons I started making this quilt when I was about twelve or thirteen, it has pieces from dresses that my mother made for me as well as some that I made for myself as a child. It follows on to some pieces from my own children's clothes that I made for them when they are small. It also contains a piece from the very first sofa I bought with my husband for our first house. It is almost complete now that I am 51 and my children are grown up.
