My Next Doll Quilt

When I saw these little hourglass blocks in So Many Quilts, So Little Time! (how true! how true!) I fell in love.

I was surprised when I read that the blog's author, Cheryl, had gotten her inspiration from a quilt, Welcome Wagon, in Kim Diehl's book, Simple Graces. Wait! I have that book! I went hunting for it. Yes, I did have it. Here's a photo:



And a close up photo of the quilt:



I love Cheryl's smaller version and I want to make one too! Cheryl opted for 1 1/2 inch blocks, but that's a bit too small for me. I'll be using 2" blocks. I'm going to look for fabrics in my stash now!

So glad I inspired you. I love mine and I made another small quilt today that I will share soon.
Looking forward to seeing your version.

I have that Kim Diehl Book too. Have fun finding your fabrics. I think I could make one out of my leftover HST pile. The basket is overflowing.
