Hexagon Quilt

Detail of Quilt by Cecilia Booth

This hand pieced patchwork quilt is made from fabrics that Cecilia has saved over the years. It includes fabric from many of the shows that she worked on, including The Phantom of the Opera and Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. It also includes material that has many personal memories; such as her brother's dressing gown, pants she wore in art school and scraps donated by friends and family. She finds that seeing a particular fabric can recall memory as vividly and effectively as the sense of smell. Cecilia says that her pregnancy hormones are responsible for its construction. Every single stitch was sewn by hand.

Cecilia adds that she probably broke a lot of quilting "rules" as she used so many different weights, textures and types of material, including fine silk, upholstery fabric, velvet, metallic lamés and even spandex from an old swimsuit.

Some historians believe that the hexagon or honeycomb quilt is one of the oldest patterns used. Hexagon quilt templates have been found in Great Britain dating from the 1770s.

Cecilia may consider selling her quilt if the buyer can pay off the mortgage.
