Hourglass blocks and more!

In an effort to be a better blogger (and quilter!) I'm posting my progress for you to look at of my green border on the hourglass quilt I'm working on.  In case you don't know, this was a leader/ender project that Bonnie Hunter posted a few years ago.  Ok, so I'm a few years behind... What else is new!! ;-)

I'm happy to say that it's too large for my design wall so it's now on the floor!  I've been using both the accuquilt and my companion ruler.  I find that when I cut them individually, there is a little more wiggle room;  the accuquilt dies cut them very exact, which doesn't allow for much extra.  Some of them were too small. ;-((



After the green, there's a row of neutrals and then I'm doing purples!! They are all brights.  Kind of fun!!

Hope you're having a great (and warm) weekend!

  1. You need to check your 1/4" seam on your sewing machine like Bonnie always say. <:^) All those Go cutter machines don't leave room for 5/8" seams. On the other hand, practice makes perfect so, sew on! You'll get it. I have faith in you. :^D You are doing very well with this project. I love what I see. Enjoy! ;^)

  6. This quilt is very pretty. Who cares if you are several years behind the main group, that's fine. No one is giving out a prize for being finished first. Happy stitching!

  10. Lots of fun fabrics. It's becoming more exciting with each new border and color. L&E projects seem to take for ever.

  11. It is fun! I'm going to be working on a scrap challenge this year which I will post about - maybe I can make some of those! I need to make a goal for each month regarding using scraps. Just returned home yesterday so everything is a mess and I need to grocery shop today, go thru mail, etc.

  13. A few years behind isn't a bad track record. Fine wine ages and mellows.
