Double Hourglass Quilt is Done

I finally finished my double hourglass quilt based on the tutorial from Cluck Cluck Sew. http://www.cluckclucksew.com/2009/09/tutorial-double-hourglass-blocks-easy.html
It went together so easy and fast. What took me so long was trying to decide how to quilt it. I wanted to do something besides the meandering. I ran across the double hourglass quilt that Fussy Cut did (http://fussycut.blogspot.com/2010/05/double-hourglass-quilt.html) and decided to do the straight line quilting like she did. Only I did it both ways across the quilt. We plan on using this at ball games and for picnics.



I made all three of these quilts from the 2 jelly rolls that it takes to make the hourglass quilt.


A nice surprise to see that the pattern was stars. Love it.


This is now gracing my kitchen table. Makes me want the snow and cold to be gone and then sun to come out.

I am also working on a Central Park quilt (pattern on Moda Bakeshop). I am trying it out to see if I want to make it king size. I am debating between this pattern and the PSIQuilt Pinwheel Sampler in Verna. I have 8 blocks done. I hope to have the rest complete by next weekend, then I will share them.
