JoQuilter's Blog: Hexagon Black Diamond Quilt. "Each full diamond is made with 49 scrappy hexagons, all just leftovers from other projects or cut from my stash. The exact number of hexagons is ~ 4,900. When I started this, I didn't think that it would ever get finished... the hand piecing took about 7 years. The hand quilting took about 10 months."

Bertha Neiden of Lincoln, NE, made this 10,222-piece quilt between 1909 and 1914. Bertha was a seamstress , and the quilt’s wool fabrics may have been scraps from the custom clothing she sewed. It also may have been from cloth she brought with her when she immigrated to the United States from Russia. The quilt won a purple ribbon at the Nebraska State Fair in 1914.
