Hourglass Quilt

I think it might have taken me just as long to take a picture of it as it did to make it, but I’m still glad it’s done!  Here is the hourglass quilt in all its red and white glory. I think it measures about 80×80″ square – that’s 144 hourglass blocks in the center.

I set some fussy cut bits from the border and framed them out as cornerstones for the border.

The back is red flannel with some leftover bits from the border.

  1. Jane – I think I worked on it for about two weeks on and off doing the hourglass blocks (the trimming was the worst part). The layout was crazy – and I realized I was short 3 blocks! Doing the borders was also a bit tricky because I was matching up a print instead of just cutting a 7 inch border with my ruler. I think I worked on it for 2 months on and off.

  2. Your quilting is really great! Look at the back – such a great pattern! I’ve been thinking of a red and white quilt myself….I’ll be back here shortly for inspiration 🙂
