The World's Biggest Hexagon Quilt gets the chop

Seventy Six days after being judged by the Guinness Book of Records, the Hexagon Quilt went under the Scissors and the Rotary cutters today. Three hours and 115 quilts later it is now in manageable portions ready to be bound for distribution to various groups.
This is just a small proprtion of the Lap Quilts that were cut from it. Still waiting to be bound.

The World's Biggest Hexagon Quilt

This is part of the 108.8 metres of The World's Biggest Hexagon Quilt as it was displayed at the Gatton In May 2010 Quilt Show.

It was here that the official measuring for the Guinness Book of Records was undertaken.

These 152,636 hexagons were hand pieced and received from 19 countries around the world.

Now two months later we are about to cut it up into single and lap sized quilts, bind them and distribute to Local Nursing Homes and others in need throughout the Lockyer Valley.
