Finally Finished

Yep, I finally finished this little quilt I've been working on for some weeks now. Hallelujah! I used that super simple tube method to make the double hourglass blocks. I really like them. Easy is good!

Here's the back.
And a closer view of the back with Bruno right behind it. I do love my dog!
I machine appliqued blocks from the same fabric line in the squares between the double hourglass blocks. I've had this fabric in my "waiting to be used" line for several years, so I was glad to find a project that would use most of it.
Mama is here for another week, and she was kind enough to sew the label onto the quilt for me. (She did a better job of it than I would have, that's for sure!)
I was making some meatballs to put in the freezer the other day and it just struck me as funny that I'm always arranging things into some sort of symmetry and seeing patterns everywhere I look. Do you?
We're still having plenty of rain here, but no flooding in our yard, so I'm just grateful for all the extra rain. We needed it!
Hope you're having a wonderful day.
Hugs and kisses,

Ohh enjoy your mom! The quilt is lovely. Those meat balls are such a good idea to freeze. Yes! Pattern is everywhere.
