Double Hour Glass Quilt

Oh wow….I love (LOVE) this quilt!  It’s my favorite…for so many reasons.

First, just look at the awesome-ness that is Wonderland….it’s my absolute favorite fabric!

This jelly roll has been in my stash for a year and a half…actually it’s the first “designer” fabric I ever purchased when I started quilting a year ago  and it’s still my favorite.

Backing and binding is also Wonderland….both purchased from Etsy.  I quilted with a larger stippling pattern to make the quilt feel softer and I’m so glad I did, because it’s incredibly cozy.  This is the third quilt I’ve stippled…and I have to say it’s so much quicker than straight line quilting. 

My favorite part of the quilt…well, besides my love of Wonderland…the cute green/brown dot binding.  I really like how it frames the quilt…and it’s just so adorable.

And I’m sure you’ve figured out, this quilt will be living with me!

It looks fantastic! I would love to see a tutorial because I have a few jelly rolls that I am not quite sure what to do with. I'm so glad I got to see it in person at the guild meeting this week...it is gorgeous.

It's by far my favorite of the quilts you've showed us before, trice! I love the design and the colours.

I hope you keep enjoying it!

It's beautiful! And even better in person! Congrats on an awesome job. Now I'm waiting for a post on those stippling lessons mentioned at PQMG!

Awesome! I'm really loving quilts that have one solid, light color (white or cream) along with a myriad of patterned fabrics. There's a simple elegance to it and it makes the quilt pattern and the fabrics really stand out. Great job! The back fabric is so much fun too.
