Disappearing Hour Glass
I'm not trying to compete - just to put this where I can always find it after I spent a few minutes wondering how to replicate a block that I'd made some time ago (and wrongly thinking that it started with a pinwheel block!).
Cut them across both diagonals (and I'd recommend carefully pressing them open at this stage, although I rarely follow my own advice!).
Tricky business, getting block names right!
Sew together and press again.
Slice into thirds in each direction (so for this size, 4 1/4" per slice).
I didn't have enough blue with me to make the nine blocks that I wanted to, so make the rest with a blue backed floral, which wasn't quite as close tonally as I'd hoped!
I might be putting this back on my list of things to make more / make again. I think that it would work really well as a scrappy quilt and I'm pretty sure that I already have some 10" squares cut and in my scrap drawers.
This will make a reasonable baby quilt, though. about 32" finished size.
Layering, basting and quilting next on my list of things to do!
