Finish It Up Friday ~ Hour Glass

Ta daaaaa!

Once the blocks were done, this was a pretty quick finish. I seem to gravitate toward these simple designs. Everything here came from my stash.

I think the binding fabric is rather ugly, but it worked well as a binding.

A simple solid worked for the backing.

The colors are a bit more true in this next photo.

And this is where it is living now, on the couch in my family room.

Have a great day!

    Due to the twisting in the Hour Glass blocks it tells my eyes that they are not set straight, and I had to give it a better look! Love your border fabric choice and the “ugly” is perfect for the binding.

    I can’t tell you why, but I REALLY like this latest creation of yours. Right down to the ugly binding. It’s perfect on this quilt.

  6. Another pretty finish, Katy. I think that fabric for the binding was a great way to use it!

  7. How pretty –
    the blocks kinda spin giving it a sorta on point look at first – I love it!
