I finally decided to make a little kit so I could make it in Wisconsin. I used almost all vintage fabrics.
I kept thinking about this little kit, and since I was up early one morning, I decided to just piece the hour glass blocks.
I made them to finish at 2 inches. They looked too big to me.
So I decided to trim them down so they would finish at 1 1/2 inches.
Here is a little trick I use in very tiny quilts. I take Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon 100% cotton batting and split it.
Then I layer my backing, batting, and top and give it a press. I lay something on top and let it sit until it cools. In this case, I used a cutting mat from my die cutter.
It finished at about 4 1/2 by 6 1/2 inches. I used a piece of old feedsack on the back.
Can you spot the only nonvintage fabric that I used?
Have a great day!
