Hourglass blocks have been part of a quilter's repertoire since the early 1800s and have been used to surround medallions, as rows in quilts, and as a single block for a utility-type quilt. Although it would lend itself to a scrappy version, the antique hourglass quilts we've studied using this design date to the 1920s and 1930s, and all were two-color, two-fabric quilts. We chose to make a yellow quilt because it’s a perfect color for summer.

With the right sides together, align the two squares. Stitch a scant ¼" seam on both sides of the drawn line. 

Cut the square apart on the drawn line. Press seams toward Color 1 to make 2 Half Square Triangle Blocks. 


Flip units right sides together. Align seams.

Align seams. 


Draw a diagonal line from corner to corner. Stitch a scant ¼" seam on both sides of the drawn line. Cut the square apart on the drawn line to make 2 quarter square triangle units. 


Square up the hourglass blocks to measure 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" with seams.

You will piece smaller hourglass pieces for the corner squares. Join the corner squares and sashing pieces following the pattern directions.
