    MSQ Dissappearing Hourglass Quilt

    I finished this quilt and really enjoyed this process. I cut the squares from my stash and changed it to 9 1/2. This allowed me to subcut at exactly 4 inches instead of some difficult number for me to see on the ruler. The block finished at 10 1/4 but was a little wonky so I squared them up to 10 inches.

    I have no trouble working with bias and I did use starch to help with that. I am currently working on another using up flowers blocks from my charity group stash.

    This will go to the Veterans Hospital here in Phoenix. I have a friend that hand delivers them to deserving Vets.

    If you look close you will see I turned one of the blocks wrong. No way am I ripping that out as a non quilter would never notice or care.

    Looks great! I really had to search for that one block. I like the effect of it anyway! Great job!

    ​Love it! I had no trouble working with the bias on my blocks either and the bias really helped me match up the corner triangles. Fun, fun blocks!

    Lovely quilt; on my 'to do' list! I heard about this pattern recently and want to make a block before long. My friend said it isn't that difficult.
    Would you tell us where you got the pattern?

    Oh My goodness - I love it! You are going to make a vet very happy. I like that one block turned that way - it's walking to the beat of a different drummer.

    Wow you sure were quick in completing your quilt...lovely job... Can you share and hints for making this one? Did the bias give you any issues and and did you have twisted seam from matching seams? Would appreciate any hints you would care to share.

    Your quilt turned out great. I am "afraid" of this quilt because of how in-exact the process looks in the MSQ video and how many seams and points there are.

    So if I am understanding you, you cut your initial squares at 9.5 inches, then made the half square triangles and sewed together into a 4 patch which at that point it was 12 inches square so you were able to sub-cut into 3 pieces of 4 inches?

    And then in the end when you squared up your final block from 10.25 to 10 inches, that doesn't cut off points or anything?

    Beautiful quilt. Took me a while to find the block but you're so right. It makes no difference. Adds personality! Very kind of you to donate this to a service person.

    This one is on my list. No one will notice with out you telling them. Very nicely done. I'm going to start saving the 9.5 inch square from my scraps. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice. The block turned differently gives it character.
