More Hourglass Blocks
Almost every night this week I have spent time in my sewing room working on these hourglass blocks. I am happy with my progress - I still have 2 more stacks that are partially complete and I just need to sew the 2 halves together and press them open. I have no idea how many blocks I have made nor how many more I need to have the quilt top finish at around 80"x 96". I will eventually have to take a tally but for now I am content to just sew them together. I am very certain that there will be many more made than I will need for this quilt and I am perfectly okay with that. I won't mind having enough extra to make a second quilt. Originally, my niece Amanda requested Bonnie Hunter's pattern 'My Blue Heaven' but when she saw the picture of the hourglass blocks hanging on my design wall in an earlier post she decided that she really liked them just as they were.
