    This is my charm square hour glass quilt top. It needs borders/something more, but I'm a little sick of it so this is as far as it's getting for a few months :). It's 121 blocks. I used charm squares where 2 squares yields 2 identical blocks. So every block in the quilt has an identical match... except 1. See if you can find it ;)

    Originally I was planning on making it square but I had it laid out on point on the floor and I was thinking it might look cool like that. So I put pictures of it both ways.

    I like it on point too! Would you put in big setting triangles? Great fabrics and good work on all those HSTs. :-D

    Probably set in triangles. I was taking the picture 5 minutes ago and last night when I finished it, I threw/laid it on the floor on point unintentionally, so the on-point is a 10 minute old idea
