Double Hourglass Quilt for my boy

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Square off the blocks. I didn't do that, but I didn't even know what that meant then.

Q&A with shimmerskys

Bonnie Wilson asked:
This is great! I'm not sure what you meant by messing up the whites - you mean because they are different shades of white? I think that adds to the design. I really love that green fabric with the birds - and the striped binding!
shimmerskys answered:
Thanks :). Yes, I had the fabric with the light blue dashed line on it, then bought the plain white later with the brown & white fabric, but silly me I forgot to take my fabric with me to the store. So I didn't want to buy anymore and just used it. Anyhow, I love the bird fabric too!
paholloway476392 asked:
I really like your quilt, particularly the colours. What fabric did you use?
shimmerskys answered:
Thanks! Well the fabric is kind of random. The big blue dots are Michael Miller, The lime green birds is Valori Wells, but I really can't remember who the others were.
Gerry44 asked:
Such nice colors in this quilt. I don't think I have seen it done this way It is stunning.
shimmerskys answered:
Thankyou! :)
mo.sews asked:
I'm blown away! This quilt rocks, different shades of white, that it's from your stash (awesome stash btw) and first time quilt??? This caught my eye immediately. Have you washed it? Because it looks so snug and comfy! Great job!
shimmerskys answered:
Thankyou!! Yes, I washed it and it crinkled up. I like how it did that because it looks all snugly.
