My Precious Quilt Along Project

I'm joining up with the "My Precious" quilt along going on at Kelby Sews. I don't really have any rare fabrics as I've only been collecting the designer lines for about a year now. I don't often purchase whole lines of fabrics, so when I do they're usually pretty special, or precious...
This California Girl by Fig Tree Quilts line is my pick for the My Precious project. I have the whole fat quarter stack that I'll finally allow myself to cut into for a quilt. I'll be giving the quilt to my sister when it is finished, so that makes it doubly precious. In browsing blogs, I thought the double hourglass at Cluck Cluck Sew looked like it would be nicely suited to this fabric.
I spent some time on Sunday cutting all my strips, I'll only be using 35 of the 38 fqs, as I didn't want to include the solids. For the background fabric I chose Kona Snow, which in my head I always call bone for some reason. So 81 print strips and 40 solid strips later, I was ready to start chain stitching. I didn't make too much progress as I was working on several other projects, but I did make one block (before I cut all the strips, actually) to make sure I liked the look.

I think it will turn out nicely, perfect for spring.
