Took me a while to figure out why this 3-yard quilt pattern is called 'time machine'. I'm thinking it is because they used Hourglass Blocks (but I may be wrong). It is from the book Easy Does It 3-Yard Quilts from Fabric Cafe.
It has been fun going through my stash and pulling out one-yard cuts to see what I can combine to coordinate. I've had a few clunkers but I really do like this one.
I have had the pastel plaid for quite a while and it never did seem to fit when the blocks were cut small. Then I found this pattern with large blocks and had TWO fabrics with the same print in different colors - both of which were in the plaid. Perfect!
Such a soft and gently quilt top. I turned the plaids on every other row so it reinforces the woven look.
I quilted with an open design of three leaf clusters as I did not want to do a lot of heavy/dense quilting on this airy design. I used cream colored thread.
This is the last of my quilts for 2023.
