Disappearing Hourglass ready to go home

      The requests for Comfort Quilts has not slowed. Cancer and illness (non-COVID) are too much with us. This Disappearing Hourglass (MSQC pattern) needed a border to make it a smidge bigger. I had a piece of yardage that never went with anything, but is perfect for the backing. I quilted it, just changing the center motif in each block row. It actually went flawlessly on the longarm. Sometime, I have to write a post on all my trevails and adaptations to make things work on the longarm.

All quilted, just need to decide binding

Final with binding before washing

          Because this is a comfort quilt, the rest of the package (quilt, tote bag-custom pocket, book, card, pocket quilts and NEW- an instrumental CD donated by a friend), is shown below before it was mailed off to Minnesota where tracking told me it arrived Saturday.

This is absolutely beautiful. The fabrics are so vibrant. I particularly love the three rogue blocks adding visual interest. What is life without whimsy!!!

I love how your quilting made the blocks spin.
