Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

Progress on Hourglass and Chevrons






During the Labor Day Sew In on Twitter I made twenty-four of the Disappearing Hourglass blocks, half of what I need. On the first one I forgot to rotate the center patch, but I decided I like it, so that’s how I’m making them.  My personal twist.


The backing fabric arrived for the Chevron commission, and it was worth waiting for, wasn’t it? 


I have it all spray basted and ready to begin quilting today.  I added extra batting under the gray areas to make the feathers stand out.

Hope you’re making progress with your projects.  I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Hi. Love your work there today. I think the idea of adding the extra batting for “poof” in the right places is ingenious!

  2. I can’t wait to see how the extra batting enhances your feathers and your hourglass blocks look inviting to make.
