Once again, I was inspired by a follow Instagram member to create this quilt top. I might have come across the combination of this two quilt blocks (hour-glass + nine patch) before but it’s really seeing the picture on Instagram that triggered my motivation. I had some blue Faffe Fasett stripes and a dark blue fabric in my stash that I though was perfect for this quilt.
I never done hour-glass nor nine patch block before. It was a good exercise for me. For the hourglass, I followed this video tutorial on Missouri Star Quilt Co channel. It is very well explained and I should have watch the nine patch tutorial before sewing up mine. I had some issue with figuring out the size of the stripes versus finished block. The nine patch didn’t end up being nine equal squares. I still loved the result and I practise (successfully) the nine patch later on.
Here is my top. I wish I had more fabric to add more rows as I love this pattern so much. I might add a blue border if I find a fabric that match.
