Instruction Sheets

Hourglass

Here’s an easy quilt to piece using Quarter Square Triangles. I used my Accuquilt Go to make my blocks but you can make them from squares too.

Quilt size is 40 x 56

Block size is 8 inches finished

Quarter Square Triangles are 4 inches finished so if you’re making them from squares – you’ll start with a square that is 5 and 1/4 inches. If you don’t know how to make the block, here’s a good tutorial.

Make (140) 4 inch finished hourglass blocks (4.5 with seam allowances)

Sew (4) hourglass blocks together rotating the blocks as shown below. Make 35 blocks.

Then assemble blocks into rows – sew 5 blocks in each row and sew the rows together, you will have 7 rows of blocks.

Here’s my finished top. I am not adding a border to my quilt but you could use a 4 inch border if desired.

I made larger quilt several years ago using the same 4 inch finished Hourglass blocks.
