Worth It

Although I had to do almost everything twice for this quilt, I am so happy with the result.

Hourglass Quilt

I used the directions for the hour glass quilt on AmandaJean's site. Chain piecing helps this go together pretty quickly! Definitely take her advice and press the seams open.

Quilting Detail

My triangle piecing still needs some work but unlike my first try, the seams are all strong and I feel comfortable throwing it in the wash! Finished size is pretty big, 50" x 60" and it is light weight, quilted to fleece with no batting. Added bonus: I got to hand deliver the quilt to the precious recipient --

I am definitely glad I stuck with this project through all the ups and downs.
