Summertime Hourglass Quilt
I finished my Summertime Hourglass Quilt! I am trying to finish up so many of my quilt tops and I am excited to have crossed this one of the list. I started this one back last summer. In fact, the fabric was purchased while visiting my parents and the cutting process started while I was at the beach, which is where they are now.
The top has been done for a while, but I couldn't decide if I wanted a border around it or not. I added an orange polka dot border and then decided that the oranges weren't close enough so it was ripped off. I am glad that I went without the border on the front.
The orange on the back is the same that I was considering for the front. I like it on the back.:)
I quilted it 1/4 inch in on the sides of the seams to form squares. The fabrics are perfect for summer, I think.
Have a great weekend everyone!
