My Disappearing Hourglass Quilt
I was so happy to finish one of my own projects this week! It has been months since I have quilted something of my own. I need to do this more often.
I looked back in my pictures and found that I started piecing this top in October 2014. I followed the video tutorial done by the Missouri Star Quilt Company. The prints are from the Kate Spain fabric line Honey Honey (a layer cake pack). The background is white.
You may be wondering why this is block is called the disappearing hourglass. Look below and you will see 4 blocks on the left that are traditional "hourglass" blocks. You take these hourglass blocks and carefully cut them just right, rearrange the pieces, and sew them back together again. The picture on the right is what they look like after this process.
Last week I showed you Katie's disappearing hourglass quilt. Her blocks were made using the same process, but she arranged her blocks a little differently when sewing them together, so the overall design looks different.
The backing fabric is a Kona solid light green, called melon, I think? It's been so long since I bought it I can't even remember. I do like it a lot. I quilted it using one of my new designs called Swift and white thread. I REALLY liked that! I would say this might be my favorite pantograph now.
I'm hoping to get the binding on this lovely quilt this weekend. Thirteen months to finish, so glad to have it done!
I'm linking up over at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a great weekend!!
