Hourglass Strings

I finished quilting my Hourglass Strings yesterday and the binding was done tonight. I don’t have a picture yet – not sure how I’m going to manage pictures here at the apartment but I’ll take one somewhere tomorrow and post it.

This quilt is a UFO from last year AND my first finish for the HeartStrings Quilt Project! I had planned to quilt it using a freehand design from the Line Dancing book but ended up playing with my tension way too long and opted for a quick pantograph instead. I’m way behind on my quilting thanks to the move and other stuff that kept me busy last fall so I’m on a mission to FINISH quilts!

When we started the HeartStrings Quilt Project there was a suggestion that we create a website and after reading the comments on Nancy’s blog about so many people NOT wanting to join another group but willing to make blocks for Nancy I thought it was time to get one going. One of our members, Phyl has offered to help us set up a web page so we’re looking at options for hosting sites and starting to draft the content.


  1. a website – sounds great! It sure will attract more folks to play.
    Hope you figure out how to show your quilt soon-I am looking forward to seeing how it turned out!

  2. If you are looking for a reliable host for cheap, I can recommend mine,
    Huge Host. They have plans as low as $6/mo and accept paypal as one of their forms of payment.

    If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

    Congratulations on making it a reality.
