I am still hooked on making Allison's Double-Hour Glass Blocks over at
In the freezing cold month of January, I took a challenge to make 50 quilts for this year in an on-line quilting group that I belong to. They didn't have to be big gigantic, enormous quilts. There were no rules. Just make 'em and bust some serious stuff in my stash. To date I have only made about 19 . OMGosh I better hurry.
I also made a commitment to myself (in November 0f 2009) to make most of my quilts to be delivered to babies who are born right here while their daddies are deployed. This has been the most gratifying project for me to date. Other than sending quilts to Alycia for her QOV project.
I am fortunate that I have a wonderful new son-in-law and daughter who call the US Air Force their employer. And with that comes an automatic "in" for a bunch of my quilts. These young, new wonderful families are all having babies. To me, I can never thank them enough for all that they do for our safety and freedom.
With all that said, Hilary this is for you!!!
I am also impatiently waiting for Pleasant Home's Square it Up Ruler to show up in her Etsy Store. It will make it so much easier to make this block without using a cardstock template.
