Making hourglass quilt blocks is pleasantly repetitive and the results are beautiful. Butterfly Kisses is made entirely of organic fabrics, mostly Sarah Watson's Biology collection. I completed hand stitching the binding on Wednesday and it is already in use on my bed.
I used a new-to-me quilting technique featuring little hand stitched crosses, an idea shared by Jen Kingwell on a Fat Quarter You Tube session. You can find links and more details on my earlier post here. This style of quilting blends in nicely with the Biology backing fabrics too - just love the Biology feature fabric! This particular fabric also worked beautifully in the hourglass blocks, creating a variety of visual effects.
Each hourglass block is 5 1/4" square
