Week of August 13, 2017 – Hourglass Quilts

I just love little Hourglass Blocks!  To me they are simply charming.  This first quilt to the right was made for me by my friend Linda Rhodes.  It has wonderful civil war fabrics and each block is only 1” x 1” making the entire quilt 10.75” x 10.75” with binding.

The next one was made as a reproduction of a quilt in the Mary Ghormley collection (now owned by the International Quilt Study Center – Quilt House in Lincoln, NE). 

I made it in 2011.  I had been studying the book Childhood Treasures which pictures this quilt and I tried to reproduce the quilt on page 28.  It had those charming Hourglass blocks so I found fabrics similar to the original and made my own little 14.75” x 14.75” treasure.  I even brought the fabric from the back to the front rather than sewing on a binding and I hope to never do that again!  This little quilt features the blocks on point with sashing which is a little unique.

When I picked up a little 2.5” Moda charm pack of William Morris fabrics I knew it needed to be made into another Hourglass Quilt.  I just finished this piece in May and I love the collection of fabrics that were included in the pack.  This is another little quilt (14” x 16.25”) but it ended up a little bigger by adding the tiny border and then the big one.

I think I want to do a series of little quilts in two colors.  I might work exclusively in red and white – it looks so clean and bright.  This next one was my read more...

It's Almost Here! 
The Yarn Crawl is just a few weeks away!

We are soooo excited!  We have two beautiful cowl patterns for you this year: a knit (Dragonflies and Lace) and crochet (Butterflies and Lace) version.  

Octopus for a Preemie Workshop
September 23rd
2:30 to 4:30 PM

Are you a crocheter looking to give your time and talents to a great cause? We are calling upon avid crocheters to help create small octopuses for premature babies.
The tentacles mimic the feel of the umbilical cord in their tiny hands. They have been found to soothe the babies, and help prevent them from pulling on their wires and tubes.
This is a workshop to learn the basics of crocheting the octopus for Octopus for a Preemie – US.

The pattern and instructions will be provided at the event.

You can click on the cute little Octopus pic for more details and to RSVP for the workshop!  We are excited to be part of this important project and hope you'll join us!
