I finally finished this top, after starting it last summer and putting it away for awhile.
"Hourglass"  (aka Courthouse Steps) 64" x  78"
Made from shirt scraps and vintage fabrics.

It's my rendition of this quilt from Roderick Kiracofe's collection.

"Housetop, variation" c. 1950-1975, African American
From the book, "Quilts" by Roderick Kiracofe.


I'm not sure how I'll quilt it.  I'm thinking about lots of red ties. 
Whatever I do, it'll be awhile before my hands are free.  

They're occupied with this one for the next six weeks.  
It's got a date with the local quilt show in March!
