My Favorite Quilt Block Blog Hop - Last Day, My Day, and Giveaway - Hourglass

Welcome
to
the final day of the
My Favorite Quilt Block Blog Hop.

 I'm sad to see this hop end.
My vision became a reality thanks to everyone who played along.

It has been so fun to see all the 
favorite quilt blocks
take center stage for one week
and
to all that participated or commented -
Thank you so much!

The projects have all been fantastic and the posts have been so inspiring.
I can't wait to start on my next idea from the hop.

But first, it's my day to show my favorite quilt block.


The quarter square triangle aka - Hourglass quilt block


Is this a block or a component of a block?
Either way it's my favorite (today) and fun with 2 colors or 4.
This time I used 4 different colors per block with the new
Petal Pushers collection by Island Batik.

I mixed the quarter square triangle blocks with squares of the fabrics to make the quilt.


The quilting was on my long arm with Glide thread (color - Raven) and Hobbs cotton batting.

I made a tutorial to make Hourglass blocks back in 2016.
I made the hourglass blocks a little larger for this quilt.


Part of the fun for me is the pictures.
This one is on the dock that my hubby built.



I invited quilt bloggers to 
"Show your favorite quilt block"
Show it, explain why you love it, and make it a project.

What a treat to hop
 around all week and see 
some new quilt blocks, some old quilt blocks,
and some fresh quilty ideas to inspire us.

I'm excited to introduce today's line-up of bloggers.

It's both! I love your quilt, it is so colorful. And the hop was wonderful, I've had a crazy week so I haven't managed to see everyone's post yet, but I'll get to each and every one for sure!

Thank you for allowing me into the hop this week. I learned that although a block may look difficult it's probably just in your head. Your's is another I don't think I have made, thanks a lot, one more to the bucket list :) Hopefully I can remember to check back for the November hop.

The hourglass block has become one of my favorites, too. Of course, you made it into a much more incredible hourglass quilt than I could ever have made. It really is gorgeous in those fabrics and the quilting is amazing. Thanks for inspiring me always and forever!

I really enjoyed seeing the scrappy churn dash, and the disappearing 9 patch in on my bucket list (I have even bought the fabric for it). Maybe in 2020 I can actually get it made. Thanks for the blog hop. It is always inspiring to see the wonderful creations. Nancy A: SewingGranda@gmail.com

McStamper said...

Love your quilt. The deep colors are beautiful

Danice G said...

What a gorgeous quilt you made, as always. The hour glass block is a favorite of mine too.

Kathy E. said...

Carla, your hour-glass blocks are just gorgeous in your quilt! The colors are so bright and cheerful...who wouldn't love snuggling up in that beauty! Thanks again for hosting this week's hop...it was great fun seeing all of the fabulous projects and filling my inspiration bucket!

Pamela said...

All the projects today were delightful, and I especially love yours Carla, because the colors are amazing. Your quilt just dances! Thanks so much for this hop. I think my favorite posts of the whole hop were the canoe block, because I had never seen one before, and broken dishes, because I never knew how to sew that one before. Wonderful learning and inspiration!

Nancy D said...

Love the colors you used in your quilt! Thanks for the hop.

teachpany said...

This was such fun, and great inspiration. Thanks for organizing.

Carol said...

Gorgeous quilt--love the colors. I noticed you used Glide thread. I still haven't tried it although some of my quilty friends use it too. I guess I'd better get some. Thanks for the hop and thanks for sharing!

Elizabeth V Kelbaugh said...

Love the fabric colors and your Hourglass quilt. Great Job! Thanks for inspiring.

Jan Snell said...

Carla, Thank you! What a wonderful blog hop. It was really fun to see what some people did and how totally creative they were. Interesting trend of churn dash. Your hourglass quilt is bright bold and beautiful and I wish you a day filled with wonder and fun. Thanks!

Brandy said...

I enjoy hourglass blocks too, but even more so as a disappearing block! I also love that they turn into a star block when used in the Ohio Star setting. It's so neat how versatile all the blocks can be, it seems like a quilter should never be bored. :)
