It’s finally done- my little one’s hourglass quilt.
And I’m absolutely in love with it. I love the colors, the pattern and of course, love that I made it. Many of the fabrics are from Sandi Henderson’s Farmer’s Market line. This has to be my favorite collection of all time!
I’ve been thinking about this quilt ever since we moved Ms O into her twin bed this summer.
I was supposed to have it done by her birthday in June. It came and went and still no quilt. Then fall hit, but Nana saved the day with a thick comforter which we put to use right away.
It’s a large quilt about 92 x 64. I know- it’s a weird dimension. I still can’t calculate things right, but it fits on Great Grandma’s pineapple bed. I didn’t use a pattern, but followed AmandaJean’s tutorial. I cut my squares 8″ then cut and sewed those together for a total of 140 hourglass squares. For the batting, I used Warm and White- again thanks to AmandaJean. With all the white cotton, the Warm and Natural I usually use would have tinted the pure whiteness of the quilt. The Warm and White is wonderful and I’m seriously considering buying a whole bolt! (It’s currently 50% off at Joann’s.)
I love tucking her in at night and wrapping the quilt around her tiny body in the big bed.
Handmade makes everything cozier.
