Earlier this week when I was bored with cabin fever, I cut out a little hourglass quilt from scraps and stash. I sewed all the little blocks up today. What do you think?
This is a pattern from Allison Harris of Cluck, Cluck, Sew. (I have a link to her blog on the right) I like the way she has you make these blocks, because it requires you to square them up. I think they are purposely made just a tad big. I've never been good at squaring up so I do like it when the pattern requires it.
This is one I'll keep in my collection for when I need a baby girl gift. Oh yeah! I want to do a shout out to AnneBright.com. They are awesome! I saw some beautiful qulting using their digital design called Slip and Slide. I loved it even though it was a simple curvy line repeat. I'm just not that good doing custom quilting without a pantograph and since I don't have a computerized long arm, I asked if they had it in a paper version. They did not but THEY MADE IT FOR ME! Seriously, they did. It is now on their website in a paper pantograph. Can't wait to get it and use it for this little quilt. Talk about customer service! Check them out.
One more picture....homemade chocolate milkshake, using Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream, some milk, and a couple squirts of chocolate syrup. This is becoming a nightly habit....Oh my goodness, so yummy.
...and that is why I run....
