Round #3

Chris @ Chrisknitssews has chosen Hourglass blocks for the 3rd round!

I continued to use Island Batik fabrics from the Baby Bloomers collection (by Kathy Engle for Karen Overton).

Now, you Need to go to the co-hosts blogs and see their hourglass rounds! Their links are in the schedule below.

How I made my Hourglass blocks

I used the Accuquilt 8″ Qube die #4 to make the Hourglass blocks. I then trimmed them to 3 1/2.” They will finish at 3″ x 3″ in the quilt.

The math for this round was pretty easy. The star round ended at 21″ x 24.” With the hourglass blocks finishing at 3″ square – it meant that the 7 hourglasses across and 8 down were the way to go.

If I was having difficulty with the math, I likely would have put a few empty white blocks between some of the hourglass blocks to make it fit. Depending on what I needed, they might have been 1/4″ spaces or 1″ spaces … whatever I need to make up the difference.

Other’s Rounds

Here’s Heather’s:

Here’s Charlenes … Stars are done…called eccentric stars

Here’s Jacomina’s … She’s waiting to see what Round #3 is to fill in the borders …I found some very interesting orphan blocks and hope to incorporate those …

  2. Hi Gail, I really like your quilt so far. I really like your suggestion of leaving a blank block or two to make the blocks fit. I’m going to add that to my What I learned so that I can remember it! Thanks

  4. I just got an AccuQuilt Go so I loved seeing how you used yours to make the hourglass units. Since I’m a newbie to the tool, what would you recommend for my first die(s) purchase? I’d appreciate any suggestions ….

    • Hi Sue,
      When I first got my AccuQuilt Go (from Island Batik), I received the 8″ Cube dies and the 2.5″ strip die. I use the 8″ Cube dies the most. But the 2.5″ strip die is handy at times! Have fun with your Accuquilt!
