Lemon Lime Hourglass


The last time I made this quilt it was for my own pink bundle…man that went by fast!



I love this quilt because it is modern but classic, and perfectly gender neutral in these colors.  The backing is a Marmalade pinwheel print…it looks so great with the front.


I’m craving these bright colors after taking all of my Christmas décor down…my house looks bare!
And for all of you on a New Year’s diet:
Muahahahahahaha. (that’s my evil laugh)

    Ahahahaha! That's hilarious, though I've always wanted to try making doughnuts…

    Beautiful quilt. :-)

    Yummy! Are you going to post the recipe? I was just going to try baked ones, but those look really good :)

    Your new quilt is again so beautiful! I love simple patterns and beautiful colours with white!
    I wish there was some doughnuts at my home now! Happy New Year! x Teje

    This is a great quilt! Do you know of anybody who will quilt quilts in the Seattle area? I just moved north of Seattle and would like to find somebody who isn't too crazy expensive. Thanks!

    As I stick to the classical definition of diet = way of living you can't shock me!
    Your doughnuts look yummy! I have never made doughnuts, they're not so common here in Germany.
    May I have your recipe please? :-)

    Yum! I haven't packed away my Christmas stuff yet, it's too hot to even think about it.

    I hope no one buys those quilt kits before I get to them! Love the fabric choices – and thank you very much for putting together quilt kits b/c then I don't have to choose and can rely on your good eye!

    But my quilt making (yes, I'm FINALLY a quilt maker…I've done two in the last few months!!!) will take a temporary hold with a new baby girl arriving her in just a few weeks!

    Love the donuts and in our home, we make wonderful low fat ones that are amazingly delish!
    Your quilt is beautiful! I wish I could figure out triangle as you have. Happy New Year!

    I so love this pattern. I am currently making this quilt using your tutorial already in a purple and aqua. I hope to finish it in the next couple of weeks.

    I love the way this quilt looks. Your colors are so pretty. I wish I ad some of those doughnuts. :-)

    But what if doughnuts are your New Year's diet?

    Happy New Year…and happy making! With the fridged temps in Seattle now, i think you've picked the perfect things to console yourself with: quilts and doughnuts!

    laughing to tears!!!! at the doughnuts!! I've been eating homemade cinnamon rolls since new years day! and thinking about loosing weight. HA HA. I love your quilt. I have been thinking about making an hour glass quilt…. I was going to just use a layer cake now wondering about adding white. Thank you for so much inspiration here at your blog. I have two of your patterns on this years to do list:) happy thursday! Janita

    And you look so darn sweet!

  15. Pam January 3, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

    OH YUM, doughnuts, I have not made them for years, I stick to sweet buns and cinnamon rolls.

    Gary- I can't find your email or a blog to respond to…but I send all my quilts out to a long arm quilter, her name is Kathy and her button is on my sidebar towards the top..and she's not crazy expensive! :) Hope that helps and that you see this!

    Way cute – love the bundle – I just might have to hop on over to "Everyday" and get me one! (Thanks for the plug to Gary.)
    Oh my – donuts! You're killin' me!

    Pretty quilt, it's nice to see that shade of blue paired with something other than red for once. =)
    Mmm, doughnuts! I've tried making homemade before, but what I really need is an awesome apple fritter recipe. Those are my favorites. =)

    Another beautiful finish ; ) so fresh looking and fun.

    I love your quilts! I have at least 4 of your patterns. You make things look easy, even making donuts, but me no, I'm trying to eat that 2 pounds of See's candy!

    Love the fruity colours, and the sugary doughnuts.

    Love the quilt. Would love the doughnuts, but I have to loose 40 lbs. by May.

    I'm loving those fresh bright colors! Way to beat the winter blues. And the backing is perfect…great choice. As for the doughnuts…wish I could pluck one off the screen and into my gullet! Think you might have to share the recipe for those.

  30. Bari Jo January 6, 2013 at 12:03 am #

    bahahahah – please share the recipe!
