Trying to keep up

     I don't know how Sarah, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, keeps up. I have a lot of tops pieced, but my quilting is slow. Lately, I have had 4 requests for comfort quilts. I have to quilt, sew pockets on bags, make a card, wash everything and put it all in a tote bag and then in an oversize zip loc for the recipient. I used my last book and, fortunately, some one gave me an Amazon gift card so I could order another 6 books.  I feverishly labored to get this one out the door for my neighbor, the author, who requested the package for the mother of a coworker.
     I think I would like to make this double hourglass again. I liked the onpoint arrangement better than straight rows. The setting side triangles were tricky to figure, but I guess there is an app for that.

The double hourglass has great movement when on point like that! It almost looks like there are some curved blocks.

Sarah is a whirlwind, isn't she?
