All of the fabrics in the top came from the stash.
I purchased the backing fabric
specifically for this quilt.

I find it interesting that the improv challenge for us right now is hourglass blocks. An hourglass means time is passing. It seems time is the thing most of us have in abundance right now.

I still need to get busy and figure out what to make for this challenge. Hope something comes to me soon.
