Finished Quilt Size: 44 inches x 56 inches
I have finished my hourglass quilt and I love it! I so enjoy working with simple traditional quilt designs, and randomly collating modern fabrics (from my fabric stash) to make a quilt.
I have combined a wide range of fabrics in every shade and saturation of pink, as well as a mix of fabrics with a predominantly white or off-white background to make a scrappy quilt with an overall cohesive look. I think you'll recognize many of these fabrics used from previous projects.
As this quilt is all about fabrics I have limited the quilting detail by ditch stitching all of the seam lines (horizontal, vertical and diagonal). It was a lot of slow and careful stitching, but I think the result is well worth the effort. The quilt still has the lovely texture created by the quilting but there are no visible lines of stitching across any of the fabrics.
For the back of the quilt I have used a fabric that I have been saving for just the right project - Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey (Scooters in Vanilla Ice). And although I auditioned many different fabrics for the binding there was no other fabric that made quite the same statement as a black/white striped fabric.
It is going to make a lucky girl very happy.
