Hourglass Quilt Block Remix

This month’s Quilt Block Remix group is exploring the simple Hourglass block. We want to have fun playing with the block while we look at imaginative possibilities – and perhaps make a quilt! You’re invited to follow along and perhaps, create your own take on the hourglass block.

Each Monday of April, we will post on Instagram one step of our process. I’ll be posting on my blog each week, too.

I have chosen to work with spring colors of pink and green, and using a white background, as shown in the photo below. This week I am cutting 5-inch squares. To make two hourglass blocks, I need to cut 1 pink square, 1 green square, and 2 white squares. Next week I’ll share the sewing technique.
