playtime



My finish it up motto for 2012 calls for some deep digging in the pile of ufo's and finished tops.
This playtime flimsy has been through a few circles of different layouts that has then been ripped apart. The first posting about playing with the charm pack was back in january of 2010. It's kind of a time-travel back to my series of exploring the charm pack format. Literary hours was spent piecing these hourglasses and enjoying the colorful Sandy Klop prints.



This last attempt for a finished top consists of adding the big hourglass. The top is 48" by 60". I think I will call it good, and move on to finding a back for it. What do you think? Is it time to finish it up and move on?

I love it! The hourglass block is so fun and playful! I have been collection charm packs for the fabric lines I like, but couldn't offer to buy in yardages. I hope to save enough and make a stamp quilt from them. xo

Your quilts and colors are fantastic. The big hourglass diminishes all the work you put into the rest of the quilt, it is kinda jarring but remember this is only my opinion. All the colors and perfect piecing of the small hourglasses are perfect.
