Brand new year

Lots of sewing went on over the holidays. I used my time off to start a couple new projects and continue on some others (the never ending scrap bin cutting).

First off I tried one of Missouri Star Quilt Company’s patterns the Disappearing Hour Glass It was very cute. I used a precut I got in Fredericksburg and white on white yardage. I’ve sewn all the Hour Glass blocks now I need to cut them up, rearrange and re-sew them.

next up I started a new quilt for my son and got the top finished, its a queen size…He ask for it a week before Christmas…lol I told him I would do it for his birthday…It was too big to fit on the design wall.

And I also worked on the final clue and started putting together the block for Bonnie Hunters Grand Illusion mystery quilt. I’ve had a lot of fun working on this. I was able to keep up with the clues and put one row together so I could see how it will look. My colors are a lot darker then hers so I loss some of the pattern, but I like it.

  1. I have never seen the Disappearing Hourglass block before. Thank you for the link! Your block looks great. Your son’s quilt is beautiful! It’s fun to see all the versions of the mystery quilt. Your colors just sing.

  2. The disappearing hour glass block is so striking. I love the positive/negative effect that it has. Congrats on getting so much done in December. I too did Bonnie’s mystery but did not get as far as you.
