In my last post I said I was getting the itch to start something new and that’s exactly what I did…but at least it’s not another quilt top! I follow Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict on Instagram and last week she posted this picture of a mesmerizing quilt block that I just had to try out.
She calls it the disappearing hourglass glass block and it looks a lot more difficult than it really is. I pulled some leftover Batiks 10″ blocks I had in my stash and followed the tutorial on her blog, here are my results:
Each block finishes at 16.5″ (they’re just stacked in a line for the sake of this picture). At first I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with these beauties, I don’t have any more of these batiks so I can’t make more blocks then I realized they’d make perfect pillow covers!
I found some neutral fabric in my stash for the backs and have started quilting them, hopefully I get these done before the end of the day…I’ll post finished pictures next week.
We’re headed to Myrtle Beach late next week and we’re taking both vehicles which will be packed to the gills with stuff we won’t need for the next 3-4 weeks. DH has finally gotten the ‘bug’ to get in gear with our move and told me yesterday we’ll be completely moved by March 27. I sure hope so!!
I already have a business trip planned for April 29 and I made my flight arrangements from Myrtle Beach International Airport (MYR) 😮 That will be my first time using that airport – we’ll see how that goes 😉
That’s all for now…have a great rest of your weekend 😀
