All the hour glass blocks are made
and since some of them turned out a bit wonky I used them to make this little pin cushion.
I really like the colour combination.
Now I just have to applique the last few blocks, then I can start assembling the quilt top.
But I have once again become side tracked. I found a basket with scraps from the silk quilt I made a while ago (you can see the quilt here). I didn't think there would be quite enough for another quilt, but maybe a wall hanging. It turned out I had enough scraps for a decent sized lap quilt (36 by 56 inches).
I love the vibrancy of the silks.
I think I might try to quilt it with an invisible thread although I haven't had much luck with it on my Bernina 820. I will have to "fiddle" with the tension, otherwise a call to the very helpful Bernina agent is in order.
As today is the first day of Lunar New Year I would like to wish you all a very Happy Year of the Dragon.
