Another friend had a baby - I'm hoping to finish his quilt before his fifth birthday!! I've never made a 'proper' hourglass quilt before and as it's a boy I've chosen red, white and blue. I thought I would probably have to cut down the blocks to make them nice and square but (fingers crossed) they seem okay so far. I used the EZ Angle ruler to make the triangles from strips. This quilt seems to have a lot more new fabric in it than I usually use - though naturally there is fabric from the odd shirt or two tucked in there.
