Chain and Hourglass is a fantastic quilt block. I wouldn't necessarily try this if you are a beginner. Once you have a few quilts under your belt, give this one a try. I used batiks for my quilt which gives it a mosaic feel.
The block really isn't hard, you just want to make sure you square up each section of the block. I had alot of fun choosing fabrics for this quilt. I decided to go a little wild with my colors. Here is what the four blocks look like when put together.
Don 't you just love the look of this quilt. It has become one of my favorites. This is a lap quilt size quilt. You can purchase this quilt here on my website.
I have been quilting for close to 30 years and after loosing my job twelve years ago, I am now able to do what I love, QUILT! I specialize in baby quilts and have designed the "Lovie Lap Quilt" with pockets.
