DWMonday ~ Hour Glass Leader/Ender Project

Remember last summer, when I cut these bits  for a leader/ended project?


I used them to make these hour glass blocks.


Then they sat until I started packing for AZ. I finally decided on a layout and did a bit more cutting.


And now, I’m putting them up on the design wall.


My parents are flying in today for a visit so I doubt I will get much sewing in this week. But this is ready to go in the event that I get a few minutes here and there. I’ve been trying to get the big projects on my list done before Mr. Wonderful comes for three weeks in December. I won’t be sewing as much then either. I also plan to have him take finished projects back home with him. 

Have a great day!

    Katy,
    Don’t laugh(too much), but I just can’t wrap my head around which die you used to cut those with. Was it a quarter square triangle? My dies aren’t close by, so I figured I’d just ask.
    I think your design will turn out very nice.

    Love the QST and my, oh my, the 30’s prints are lovely.

  3. Yum, yum, yum! Who doesn’t love a good 30’s quilt? Have a ball with these little guys! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love your little hourglass blocks, and the stars you’re making them into! So, you did this by cutting your scraps up into perfect triangles with a die cutter, did you? I have been thinking about getting one of those Accuquilt GO! Baby contraptions just so I can cut my scraps into clamshells, apple cores, pyramids, tumblers, etc. for projects like what you’re doing, but the dang things are just SO expensive! Which die cutter do you have, and do you find that it’s worth the investment?
