BOQ : Hourglass

Erica Spinks (BOQ Co-ordinator) has put together a very easy block pattern for members this quarter, and with Sydney Quilt Show Entries probably 'done and dusted' this stress free block could be  attended to with one's eyes shut!

The Hour Glass block is an extremely common name for a number of quilt blocks, and this month's BOQ is a variation of the Hour Glass, sometimes referred to as Buck-eye Beauty, or, simplified Jacobs Ladder.
In fact there are more than 16 names, historically, that have been attributed to the Hour Glass block, extremely simple to both cut and construct.
Full details of colours and prints required and cutting information can be found on page 29 of the February 2015 edition of 'The Template'

Completed blocks may be brought to the Burwood Meeting on Saturday 16th May, 2015, or posted to reach the Guild Office by Tuesday 12th May
