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!
