Yesterday it was merry little 9-patches. Today it's happy little hourglasses. Actually, last night it was happy little hourglasses. My Accuquilt GO! made fast work of these little suckers. One crank for all the ecru pieces and one crank for all the black pieces. They went together like magic with the little corners already notched. :o)
You'll notice I didn't use polka dots -- nothing in the stash I liked. But I did scrounge up these Christmas prints as a compromise. I like them a lot. They play together well.
Today I sewed the 9-patch and hourglass units together and the center is now complete.
Next up -- the borders. There is one block border and two strip borders. I'll probably spend the remainder of the day in and out of my sewing room constructing the block borders. But first I have to cut them. Back to my GO! cutter. Wheeeee.
I am a retired 55-year old widow with two lovely, grown daughters. I am also blessed with a wonderful 12-year old grandson, and two beautiful step-granddaughters, or granddaughters-in-love, as I choose to view it, aged 16 and 14. *Grin* Happily, we all reside in Florida within 30 minutes of one another.
I also have an energetic Yorkshire Terrier/Bichon Frise mix, Tasha. I don't know what I would do without her. She brings me constant joy.
