from The Land of Finn *VBS* It's my Hourglass quilt making the headlines today. It's finished!Its folded in quarters for the picture. Its a 50 X 70" quilt. This one has been an ongoing project for about a year. Meaning that when I am cutting scraps, I cut a 6" square and put it in this projects box. I split it, match it up with some other quarter square and made a hourglass block. Trimmed, each one is 5" after sewing. It's an odd size I know, but it worked with my scraps. This is completely a "utility quilt". Its all scrap including the batting.
And the awesome backing. Individually these fabrics were languishing in my stash. Together they serve a purpose. I quite pleased with it....anyone can make a boring backing, right?
I hadn't planned on sticking that awful fish fabric in here,but worked and now it's all gone!! It was a 'pass along' from some quilters sister.
And last, but not least, the beginning of a new project It will put my UFO fever on "hold" for a bit. A friend of DD#1 is expecting in October and a baby quilt was requested. I'm happy to obligated since she does so much for me. I'm shooting for 20 blocks set with lattice, so it shouldn't take me too long. I hope all of you are having some happy sewing time and sun shiny weather!!
