My book Turnabout Patchwork

“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.

Simple and double hourglass quilt blocks

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.
