I clearly had too much time. VBG Not only that but I pinned just about every seam, which is something I NEVER do!
This is the finished product. It's amazing how just a little change in fabric can change the look! You may not notice but I did use a few of the triangle gatherings sashings that I obviously couldn't work into my not-yet-finished quilt.

Back to the hourglass... I'm trying to think what use I can make with the extra 2" stripes of purple that I cut for the project. I'm sure I cut too many! Any suggestions? Rail fence? Strings? Log cabin? Of course I need to first finish the quilt, right??!!
I'm definitely going to have to move it onto the floor because the design wall isn't large enough to put all the blocks on. VBG It's coming along...
