The other night I stayed up after all my boys were asleep and finished up my red and white hourglass quilt top.
I like how it turned out and sort of wish I'd have finished the whole thing up before Christmas.
It would have been a nice little addition to the decor. Oh well. It will be ready for next year.
My intention in designing this quilt was for it to be a wall quilt in my living/family room. We have this enormous blank wall that I feel needs a little something to homey it up. I tried to tape it up on the wall to see how it might look but wasn't terribly successful. I got the basic idea of it and I think it may work.
We'll see once its all quilted up. I think I'm going to do straight line quilting on it once I find the right backing for it. I need a good white fabric with a red print on it.
