Another baby arrived a little earlier than predicted. The mother requested pastels. Do I even OWN any pastels? Well, yes, I did, thanks to a generous scrap donation. YAY!
HOURGLASS BABY QUILT
35″ x 35″
Here’s how to do it…
50 5″ colored charm squares. You could use a pre-packaged charm pack plus 8 more squares. Solids are a good choice.
1 yard background fabric cut into 50 5″ squares.
1-1/8 yard backing fabric
1/4 yard binding
Using THIS tutorial, create 100 hourglass blocks. Trim up to 4″. NOTE: Each colored/background pair produces TWO hourglass blocks.
Lay them out in a 10 x 10 arrangement, making sure they alternate: top-bottom, side-side.
Stitch together rows, then rows into a finished top.
Ta-dah! A finished top.
See–I told you it was quick and easy. You probably have all the materials laying around right now.
Layer, quick and bind as preferred. Another Ta-da! Now it is a finished quilt.
