Scrappy Sunday

I did a typo and almost called this post "Crappy Sunday" lol!
I thought I'd go ahead and throw this up for my (S)crappy Sunday contribution:

These are the hourglass blocks I sewed as leader/enders while I was at my quilt retreat a few weeks ago. I hope it qualifies, as it is relatively scrappy. There are no doubt a few repro fabrics in here, but mostly its just a selection of pretty and/or interesting browns and tans I'd collected over the years. If you squint, you might be able to see my attempt to extend the medallion effect with the first surrounding row of blocks. Can you see it?

The blocks are just loose on the wall for the time being, hopefully they'll stay put while my guests are in the (sewing/guest) room next week.  I admit it doesn't look like much at the moment, but I think it will click in once its all sewed together. Its meant to be a wall hanging for behind our bed, sorta like a headboard, seeing we don't have a headboard. If I end up not loving it, I might use it as a back for something else. Or (yet another) throw.



  1. That's going to be really pretty! Glad you could join us this week.

  2. Looks great. I love the way you can catch all the secondary patterns in this quilt. Happy quilting.
