Block #8 – Hourglass 1 Block

Today’s block is very simple, but creates a beautiful diagonal pattern when combined with the simple Snowball block. It creates a wonderful quilt in terms of it’s simplistic beauty, but also one that showcases beautiful quilting designs such as feathered wreaths. The design is a little more intricate and lacy than an Irish chain and creates a very lovely quilt.

I spent some time checking files this morning and updating so that there should be a link to instructions for blocks 5-8. I did see a couple of changes/clarifications in the files. No matter how many times I check them, I find little things that could be clearer or new ways to cut the same block, and I like to update them. Everything in life is a work in progress!

Hourglass 1- Snowball Quilt

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. Marjorie,
    I’m just not seeing where you have a link for the EQ7 blocks 5+. I see the 1-4 link but don’t know where to look for the newer file.

    1. Hi Linda, Each one is in the individual post. I hope to be able to combine them into one document over the weekend. They’ll be available next week. I did update all the files – there were a couple that were not connected to the individual post. So everything should be available individually now, with the combo document later.
