I can make 2 hourglass blocks in just a few minutes…so I can fit in a block here and there while I’m helping my kids with schoolwork. I also have a large random assortment of fall-ish fabrics I’ve had for years…so it’s a great way to stash bust.

It also has a handy chart for lots of sizes.
I’m currently making the 4 1/2″ finished size (6″ starting squares), and hoping to have 208 blocks to sew into a throw size quilt by the end of November (16 rows of 13 blocks each 58 1/2″ x 72″) .
If I make 6 blocks a day I’ll have enough to sew into a quilt in 35 days.
It makes a great low stress project if you decide to join us making an hourglass (or 6) a day!
Except… can someone please send the block trimming fairy to my house? Trimming might be my least favorite chore!
