Here is my scrapiness for this Sunday... first up I am happy to say I finished my Disappearing Hourglass from Missouri Star Quilt Company. In the end I have 10 green and 10 blue blocks. Some of you asked if I found this fiddly to work with. No I didn't really, however the one thing I found most helpful is to pay attention to how your block is laying when you cut it apart and sew it in the final step of the block itself. Be consistent so your seams nestle the right way. I didn't pay attention for a few of them it seems as I had to tweak a few seams in the back to get them to nestle up to the next one. It came out in the end by doing that. I had to search through some stash to find the right fabric for the outside border. It is a dark green Thimbleberries tone on tone that pulled it all together.
Since I cut 10" strips x WOF from yardage of 10 different greens and 10 different blues, that means you get 4 blocks of each print. So yep you might have guessed I have lots of leftover 10" sqs. What that means is there will be 3 more quilts of this style in the future! I just need to get more light yardage before I continue on. For the next ones I will use a different pattern of theirs-disappearing pinwheel and some of their others-so I don't get bored ya know! I love how it came out. It measures at 55 x 65" Into the 'to be quilted' pile it goes for now.
Edited to say the pattern is Leslie by Me and My Sister Designs in their 3 Times the Charm book 2
