Monday making - just one block

One simple block with 
SO MANY color options!

I made this block this week and found out 
It’s a disappearing hourglass.

(I had used an OLD quilt block as my inspiration)

I didn’t make an hourglass...
And I didn’t make it disappear!

If I had used that method I would not have been able to make it quite so 

I used squares and strips to make this pretty block.

I DO love scrappy quilts.

(MY youtube video on this block are here and HERE)

But... I love the simple 2 color quilts as well!

Who can resist plaid??

monday making - quirky fabric

I made a new quilt this week.
SO FUN. And fast!

I used some homemade templates and lots of quirky fabric.

My templates were made from a plastic wall board we had in the garage.
It comes in BIG I don’t think I’d recommend purchasing
Just for quilting.
Since my circles did not need to be perfect...
I think using cardboard would work as well.

I didn’t worry about getting the circle edges to meet when the 
Four pieces were joined.
This is a NO WORRY.....NO STRESS kind of quilt!

It’s been washed and dried.
All of the frayed edges are 
Perfectly soft and cuddly!
