POST A NOTE: I already know you readers are going to think the quilt directly below this is an ON POINT layout. It ISN'T. Viewing the edge of the quilt at the blue 9 patch...the hourglass above it has a blue triangle touching it, same on the right side and another blue triangle in the hourglass below, that touches the blue 9 patch. Same with the 9 patch just to the right of it, and the one below..and in fact, ALL of them. I laid out the 9 patches the way I wanted them, and made the hourglass block to MATCH the 9 patch it touched. That also means that each 9 patch is just a 2 color 9 patch. This won't work if you make scrappy multicolored 0 patches.
What is neat about it is that you get the onpoint look, and also a "boxy" look, which I like. Inquiring minds needed to know...*VBS*

Finished is a good thing! They all look great. I particularly like the way the 9-patch and hour glass looks on point. Much easier way to stitch this. Perfect quilt for laying out on a design wall.

Very true... I did think it was on point. Clever to set it up this way.
