The back of the Hour Glass quilt

 Finally finished the top of the Disappearing HourGlass quilt.

Added 6 inch boarders around and here is the result.

If you wander what has happened with the first block. Here it is.

 I have implemented in the back.

 I adore Log Cabin in each and every variation.

The quilting is on the way.

 Thinking of hand quilting...

To be continued...

Disappearing Hour Glass' study

 One day drinking my morning coffee I found a video tutorial how to make Disappearing Hour Glass quilt block.

I was interested in and tried with two pieces of fabric I have by hand. They were around 11 inches squares.

I was not satisfied with the result and made another one with small pieces - 3 inches.

The colors' combination was great but the corner triangles were so small that after stitching to the neighbour pieces they would disappear.

Then I decided to make a study and made some blocks - 10, 9, 8, 7, 6 inches. 

The 6 inch block was the last one that looks well and by which the seam allowances would "not eat" the corners.

How they looked like at previous step?

I liked the puzzle with all blocks and gather them in a top quilt.

For now it is lap quilt  size. 

Probably have to add borders to have a bigger top?
