My Grandmother's Quilt

I am not sure of the year this quilt is made. My grandmother told me that there was a neighbor lady who couldn't afford the material to make a quilt so she made a deal that if my grandmother would supply the material, she would make a quilt for herself and one for my grandmother.

The hexagons are 1" on each side and it is hand quilted around each one. There is a little yellowing in places on the backing but otherwise it is in brand new condition. I don't think it was ever used or washed as it still has the feel of new material.
