double hourglasses (scappy quilt #3)

This turned out to be a very sweet quilt. I think I need to try something new, it seems lately that all my quilts have A LOT of white in them.

I really do love the contrast of the white with the colors.
I used yellow on the back, I really wanted it to be gender non-specific--I'm not sure I accomplished that though...available in my etsy shop

  1. Love it! I really like the contrast with white as well. You have inspired me to add making a quilt with lots of white to my list of quilts to make.

  3. Oh! this is my first visit to your lovely blog and I am completely smitten - I just love your use of white! Makes everything so crisp and pretty! I foresee a long sit with the laptop - I'd better make a cup of tea first! And then I want to make a quilt just like this one!

  8. Hi nicole, this a very late response to your question. This block is not my design, the quilt was inspired by a design called Short Story by Carrie Nelson.

  10. I am so in love with this quilt! I need to make one myself. Quick question - what width of strips did you use to make the blocks?
