Easy Double Hourglass in Red, White and Bue~

More inspiration from the Blogging world!!
This pattern tutorial is on http://www.cluckclucksew.com/ ~so very cute~
AND Jodi from http://www.pleasant-home.com/ has a pre-made triangle template that works for this particular pattern and you can order it in her etsy store PleasantHome.etsy.com.
take a peek at both blogs to get a good look at the different color combinations of this quilt and also a mini version by Jodi~ check out the cute wrapping on Jodis' template!!
I have decided to do a red, white and blue model~ the fabric has arrived and now I just need to carve out a day to make this fun Hourglass project~

Inspired by Wonky Wheels~

I was VERY inspired a bit ago while reading http://www.quiltycat-quiltycat.blogspot.com/ and the quilt she was making called "Wonky Wheels". She has a tutorial on her blog which makes it all so easy~
I decided to use some very thin batting as my templates for each wheel and I am hoping that when quilted they will poof right up! We shall see.......I am finally using Susan Branch collection of fabrics~we quilters' always get to it eventually......no worries~


Thank you Quiltycat~♥

Old friend~
