Here's the #hourglassatsunsetblock by Kim @lelandavestudios, this week's block in @thequiltersplanner, the newest addition to my #itseasybeinggreen17quilt! I need some pointers for making hourglass blocks that aren't wobbly, or perhaps I just need to get more Flatter by @soakwash and use a ton of it before starting. 馃槀馃挌馃尡

Thank you to everyone who weighed in about the color choices yesterday! @quiltart I played with the green on white prints I have for the center, but none were the right yellowy-olive color green for this block, so low volume won. I paired a dark with a light for each hourglass, and I like the movement it creates 馃挌馃尡馃檶

Green fabrics used are (from darkest to lightest): #adventuresfabric by @amyscreativeside for @modafabrics, an olive tiny dot fabric by Moda (maybe essential dot in sage?), an unknown green that's been in my stash for years, and #ovalelements in green apple by @artgalleryfabrics 馃挌 @tiukuliina 馃憜馃槝 Pincushion by the amazing @modernhandcraft 馃挄馃拵馃挧

When the name for this quilt first was chosen, my plan was to share a tip for "being green" with every block, to expressly demonstrate that #itseasybeinggreen ... one little step at a time. Here's your tip: walk馃毝鈥嶁檧锔, ride a bicycle馃毚鈥嶁檧锔, or take public transportation 馃殏whenever possible instead of driving everywhere. Cars not only gobble up fossil fuels, but according to the EPA, motor vehicles also collectively cause 75 percent of carbon monoxide pollution in the U.S. The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) estimates that on-road vehicles cause one-third of the air pollution that produces smog in the U.S., and transportation causes 27 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. When you walk or ride, you're helping the earth AND becoming healthier! Win-win, and worth the extra travel time! 馃挄馃檶馃寧

Sticking to my original color palette from the floral Lou Lou Thi by Anna Maria Horner, with a bit of fading this week.

I fixed last week's block. Much better don't you think? I spent some serious time on my machine fixing my tension issues and that was all it was, amazing difference that made. I really love how this one turned out! #52weekswiththequiltersplanner #bobbielousfabricfactory @thequiltersplanner @gnomeangel @bobbieloufabric

For those of us in the US, today is the final day of week 2 in @gnomeangel 's #52weekswiththequiltersplanner and boy have there been a ton of gorgeous blocks made! Make sure to get yours finished and photographed before midnight if you're playing along! 馃槝馃挄

I decided to go with Lady Paisley and Mauve Liberty from @The_Strawberry_Thief for my version of this block. I love the impact that it makes and the funky patterns created by cutting it up.
