Top of the morning

Hello!  I finished piecing the hourglass quilt top this morning.  There was a moment last week when I thought that I would have to rip out a number of squares and re-do them, but it came together surprisingly well.  Phew.  I'm hoping to get this basted and quilted this week.  Then it's back to the string-x one.  I've been (over)thinking about what to do for the back.  I've got a quasi-plan so once I get the backing finished, I'll be ready to quilt it, too.


Also, I am looking for some vintage sheet scraps.  Nothing too big, say from 6" x 6" to 10" x 10".  If anyone has any they are willing to part with, I'd be happy to send you something little in return.  Drop me an email and I will forward on my address.  Thanks.



I have an old pillowcase - I'm not sure how big it is. I cut it to be the lining of a bag and then abandoned that idea. It's definitely bigger than 6 x 6, though. If you want it, it's yours!


What a great blog! I feel so inspired so I must get off of here and do something! I have some vintage fabric you are welcome to - it's not much but I'd love for it to be used! Let me know where to send it! Nan


This quilt top is looking so great! I can't wait to see the whole thing. And I'm really impressed that you manage to get things done in the morning. If only I could convince myself to get up an hour earlier (instead of sleeping half an hour past the alarm!) so I could get something done before I have to work.... Looking forward to hearing what you have planned for the vintage sheets!

Look at you go!
I'm pretty sure I have some sheet scraps I can part with. I'll send them your way.


those points! those points!! amazing!


I've got some sheet scraps from my lounge pants that I can pop in the mail.

your quilt top looks so fabulous! how do you get it pressed so flat? there are a whole lot of seams coming together at those points.


I just adore the colors in this. I'm excited to see what it looks like all done!


it looks beautiful. i can't wait to see the finished product.


I have some great Egyptian cotton sheet scraps. I'll give it to you this week. OH! I think I have a mess of cute calico, too!

so glad I've found your blog. Love your free motion spider (I do lots of that too!)


I too have been dreaming of the hour glass quilt that AmandaJean did, but you actually made it! Wow! It's wonderful! Will you bind it without any borders? Please post when done. I do have some vintage sheet pieces I can send you. I made P.J. pants with them and have lots left over.


These squares are gorgeous, sitting there in that glorious sunlight! I can't wait to see the whole thing once it's all together - your fabric combinations are just awesome.

That is a gorgeous quilt top. I can't wait to see it finished. You are so amazingly talented!


Unfortunately I do not have any sheet pieces for you - but I just wanted to tell you how lovely that quilt looks! You create wonderful quilts - such a great eye for colors and combinations. It has given me the itch to make a quilt. :)


Just wanted to stop by and say hi! I love checking out all your little creations!


Your quilting is just the neatest I have ever seen! I might have some vintage sheets, I'll have a rummage around and see what I've got.


I have some scraps left from making my daughter a twirly skirt from an old pillow case with your tutorial. I'll gladly send you the scraps as a token of appreciation for you sharing the tutorial. If you'd like to see what the fabric looks like, you can see the skirt in the twirly skirt flickr pool. My id is cebbtn. I'm pretty sure the fabric is a cotton blend though, if that matters.


Such perfect points - love it!! Love the fabric - I am so inspired by you and AmandaJean.
