Designing Monday

I am working on this little doll quilt for Kathleen Tracy's quilt of the month on the Sentimental Quilter blog.  Kathleen has written a number of books and each month she is selecting one quilt from one of her books and encouraging others to quilt along with her.

I am making this to give to a friend as a housewarming gift.  She is moving back to our area after 3 years away.  We are so glad to have them back.

This little quilt was quick and easy.  I think it might be the first time I have made these little hourglass blocks.  That seems hard to believe, but they were fun to do.

Hop on over to Judy's blog to see some more Monday goodness.  I am really tempted to start the Christmas Town Sampler quilt.  Anybody else?


  1. Very cute little quilt. What a nice housewarming gift! : )

  2. Adorable and I love making hour glass blocks. Nice gift, Well done!

  3. Adding the red to Kathleen's design is brilliant! Love how yours is turning out.

  4. I love your little quilt. Many years ago I did an hourglass quilt, but gave it away so maybe it's time to make another. :) blessings, marlene

  5. Wow! I think she just posted that this is the pattern this month. You work fast. I love the patriotic colors, this is a very sweet quilt.
