Time in a Bottle Blog Hop (My Day)


It's time for another fun blog hop, this time brought to us by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. Here's the list of today's participants:


The theme of this hop is the Hourglass Quilt Block. As most of you know, I primarily work in wool felt applique, and I'm not that experienced in quilting. I've never attempted the hourglass block before this hop, and it took me a few tries to get the hang of it. When I did, I created four 4.5" hourglass blocks. Then, I tried to figure out what to do with them, or if I wanted to make more. I did a lot of online searching, and finally decided to use my hourglasses to make a 12.5" Ohio Star block.

Then my new plan was to turn the block into a pillow for my office. I added a border to the block and did some simple in-the-ditch quilting.

Finally, I added a pillow back, sewed it together and stuffed it. Here's the completed 15" pillow:


I love to read your comments and will try to reply to them all unless you are a No Reply Bloger.

Finally, be sure to visit everyone participating in this great hop!
