A week ago my friend emailed me asking me if there was an easy way to make double hourglass blocks. I told her nicely she was dreaming and she’d have to use the ol’ cut 2 squares into 8 triangles then cut the tips off all 8 triangles then sew them back together then square up the triangles then sew them together and square up the blocks….method. Which takes f.o.r.e.v.e.r. and is a little daunting when you want to make a quilt with lots of blocks. So I laid in bed thinking about it as crazy people do, and figured out an easier way. Really…………SUCH an easier way. I almost cried it was so easy. And then I made this quilt, finishing up all the blocks in 2 hours.
I have a tutorial for you I should get on in the next couple of days, in the meantime this little quilt is going to a brand new baby I wish I could
have hold. The fabrics are a mix from my stash, same with the back. I think I bought that big brown dot at Hobby Lobby & it matches the Katie Jump Rope orange and yellows perfectly.
I’ll get crackin’ on the tutorial to post. For now though my 2 1/2 year old wants to “fight” me (a.k.a. I lay on the floor while he beats me up and sits on my head) and he’s just found a pair of scissors which requires immediate attention…………….. bye!
