Hour Glass Blocks

Finally a bit more sewing on these blocks cut from men’s shirts.

They have widely varied fabric content which adds an element of difficulty to the sewing. But the shirts have a lot of sentimental value. I placed the blocks I had finished on the wall so the length and width is shown.

This keeps me motivated as I can see exactly how much is left to do.

I’d forgotten how much I enjoy using my Singer 301! Willy seems to get into every photo I take.

Silly pup. Have a great day!

  1. That’s a fun project to see on your design wall (and Willy is so cute). Is that a mini iron you have?

    This is a great project! I might need to pull fabric and star my own wall of hourglass blocks.

    I, too, enjoy piecing with a Singer 301A. They make such nice even stitches. Thank you for taking time to post. I look forward to each post and they motivate me to work on my stack of unfinished quilting projects. Happy Thanksgiving.
