Good Morning Quilters!
Here is a new little doll quilt that I just finished, and the story behind it. First the quilt:
And the story: While sorting some saved papers in a box, I found a picture I’d printed from an auction site on the internet. It was a quilt that I liked very much. The picture:
Also this week I was looking at the hsts I had made two weeks ago:
There wasn’t a good plan to go any further with the hsts until this week when I saw my saved picture. I thought, hmmm, I could turn all the hsts into hourglass blocks, and have enough for this little quilt..
Here is the idea taking shape:
And here is my new little doll quilt, shown with my snoozing dog, Miss Penny Lane.
The hourglass blocks are 3/4” square and the quilt measures 8.5” by 11”. I added little triangle corners on the back in case I would ever want to hang it up.
This is what I find fun with quilting - making something that pleases me out of my stash. Hope you have been having fun this week too.
Now it’s your turn - join the Design Wall Monday Linky Party below and we can see what you have made. Thanks for sharing with us. Have a great week!

What a cute LITTLE quilt. 3/4" blocks??? You did a fabulous job. I like the picture with Penny as it really puts the quilt into perspective.ReplyDelete
I love your little quilt, maybe especially because it is based on the little antique one. What a great way to use those HSTs. Thanks for hosting the link-up.ReplyDelete
