Design Wall Monday and Other Things

I've been wanting to try Cluck Cluck Sew's tutorial for Easy Double Hourglass blocks. I was able to sew two blocks out of a single strip set. and of course, my strips started at 2.5 inches!

I also made a QOV pillowcase and a few matching labels. One label will go on the orphan QOV and the others are for future projects. The red stars matches a portion of the back of the orphan QOV.

I also managed to quilt six passes on the last QOV I have at the house. The Signature squares are paired with pinwheels and plain alternate squares this time in a Nine Patch setting. I chose to quilt it with Contempo panto from Willow Leaf Studio. A few more passes and this quilting will be complete! and with a week to spare before the next night guild meeting :)

You can use a triangle ruler for that double hourglass instead of cutting a template. I love making that block - sometimes makign it with several different strips. Always fun. Cheers! Evelyn
