Finish It Up Friday ~ Hourglass

This was actually my first finish after I got back to Michigan, but I wanted to gift it before sharing.

I freehanded all the quilting, hiding little messages here and there.

It was a healing quilt for me to make. I pray it is for the recipient as well.

Have a great day!

    Great finish. The hourglass is a great block.

  7. I am making an Hourglass Quilt, too. Right now I am a little worried that is will be ugly, at least we are in an ugly phase. I should finish the blocks this weekend and be able to lay it out and hope for improvement. A little worried that I got a little too random with the colors…

  10. I’m sure this is a very calming, comforting quilt, Katy. The colors are so soothing, and the hidden messages are so sweet. The backing fabric is spot on, too! What a lovely gift!
