Kona Hourglass Quilt












The Kona Hourglass Quilt
Made with the go baby 4" HST die a 4" block 2.5 inch binding.
All HST pieces are from kona scraps saved from various projects. Outer white is Kona Snow.
Quilt measures approx 50" x 57" Almost bed size for Sophie :)
Started cutting and piecing June 28th 20011 - Finished July3rd 2011

Quite the overload on photo's this time, we either have to much sun or not enough. This is my favorite quilt I have made so far!
Ready to start a new one already.

Thank you for all the encouragement in the process of this quilt, it really felt cool to hear what everyone thought about this wild adventure. The last minute binding strip from Windham Fabrics is the best touch and I almost didn't add it on for fear of it being to crazy. I think it was the finishing touch!

Happy Sewing!

  3. I think the binding is perfect for this happy quilt! You've inspired me! My counter is not full of my Kona solids, Kaffe Fassett prints, and the Baby Go! I can't think of a better way to spend a lazy Sunday!

  9. Wow! And all from scraps? I wish I had that many, I've clearly got a ways to go! It looks so sweet on the bed, and the binding is perfect! And the back is so perfectly lined up! My skills are pretty elementary in that area.
