A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks –Double Hour Glass

 Double Hour Glass Block

I hope you had a good weekend.

It’s such a bizarre time.

Nothing is usual.

So thankful for my quilting friends & my quilting!

Something else I’m thankful for

is the sun shining into my sewing room!

Today we’ll make this cutie.

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!



  • 4 black sq’s. 1  1/2″
  • 1 center fabric sq. 1  1/2″
  • 4 half-square triangles 1  1/2″ unfinished with center fabric & color fabric


I like using Thangles when I need such small half-square triangles.

Use your favorite method.

Sew the squares into rows.

Press the seams away from the hst’s.

Sew the rows together.

I pressed the last seams open.

Taking out the few stitches in the seam allowances helps the little blocks press flatter.

How many will you make?

Show us your blocks at my Sewing With Susan FB Group.

We want to see your progress too!
