finished hourglass quilt

 I started this leader/ender challenge with quiltville in July of 2016. My friend Lucy, my daughter, and I swapped hourglass blocks all year. The top was done in September 2017. It has been waiting in the 'to be quilted' closet until this year. Now it has a chance to shine as a completed quilt. There are over 3000 pieces in this quilt. It was such fun to get a new package in the mail with new hourglasses. And fun again as they were sewn into the top.




This also completes my one monthly goal at elm street quilts. And is my first finish for the year. hooray.

  1. This is a beautiful quilt! I remember when Bonnie issued this challenge, I decided not to participate. Sometimes I regret that decision when I see how lovely these quilts have turned out. Happy stitching!

  2. I've loved this quilt design since Bonnie first put it out there. I started one and it still languishes unfinished. Your finish has sparked me to put my project at the top of my UFO list. I love your quilt finish. I do not have anyone swapping hourglass blocks with me. What a great idea that was !

  8. I wanted to do this leader/ender challenge too! But for some reason, it just didn't happen. Yours is gorgeous. What a great idea to exchange blocks with a few others.
