In cleaning up my sewing room, I found these 7 quilt tops waiting to be finished.  I really don't like half-finished projects laying around taking up space, so I got busy over the weekend and finished 2 of the baby-sized quilts.  As for the bigger ones, you might recognize my Kaleidoscope, Scrappy Strings, Soul Blossom, and my oldest WIP an Hourglass throw quilt which I haven't touched in almost 2 years (ahem, and I used to kid my mother about taking 12 years to finish up a queen-size hand-quilted quilt...)

But.... getting up the motivation to baste a larger quilt (let alone actually quilt it!) takes way more energy than starting a smaller project, so what did I do?  You got it, I started another baby quilt with some leftover Bliss scraps from my Wonky 9 Patch.
I've been wanting to do another double hourglass since I made this Christmas stocking last year.  But this time instead of 3" blocks, these babies are 12" - this top should come together in no time (hopefully!)

  5. I love the spools of thread! --that's what they look like to me...

  6. I love the double hourglass blocks -- I've wanted to make a quilt with this block for quite some time now, and yours is definitely inspiring!

  7. I have to say, when I discovered spray basting, it COMPLETELY changed my view on basting bigger quilts. I used to dread it, too, especially since I live in a tiny apartment. But now I spray then pin in a few places to just make sure there's no shifting. And thanks for having visited my blog! M
