The simple hourglass quilt block is a classic block. I made mine using pre-cut 5″ charm squares.
On the other hand the double hourglass block is made with fabric strips. It can be made any size.
You will need a ruler with 45 degree markings to cut the triangles.
You can make the quilt in coordinated fabrics or just scrappy.
It’s a great bock to use pre-cut jelly rolls.
How to make a double hourglass block and a single hourglass block
New book out on December 3
“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
You can preorder on Amazon.
Or preorder on Bookdepository and get it delivered for free.
Stay tuned for more!
