Well it does appear I have made enough units for the blocks of this Hourglass quilt on the cover of Kim Brackett's new book Scrap Basket Beauties. And thinking about the name of this quilt called to mind that opening line from the soap opera "Days of our Lives"...like sands through the hourglass. Oh I just had a flashback to my childhood... I remember my Mom watching that show... in black and white. That was a long time ago - LOL!
I like how it is looking. It takes 324 units to make 81 blocks. I've only got one row sewn together so far. Eight more to go! Before the borders it will measure about 55" square. I want to add a narrow inner border and then a wider swath of that Moda Alphabet print.
I like this rusty Moda Grunge fabric but I don't have enough. I see another trip to Fabric Shack in Waynesville in my future. I was there last week and purchased a half yard for my Vintage Schnibble, Hat Trick. I'll show it later this week. I got the top done but I haven't decided how I want to quilt it yet.
Okay, lots of running around this week. My youngest son has exams and I have a couple of appointments too. Hope we all get some sewing time in.
