Hour Glass Block Re-Mix Challenge - Sneak Peek #2

It's time for Sneak Peek #2 of my Hour Glass Block.   

Last week I shared that I didn't really have a vision on how I wanted to "ReMix" this block.  If you missed last week's post, here is a link to it.  And guess what? I still don't really have a vision! I'm just playing and letting the block go as it wants.  

Last week I played with straight lines and it was kinda cool.  This week I'm playing with curves! 

I added curves on all four corners of the hourglass block.  It's kinda a nod to a Drunkard's path but with a hour glass in the middle.  The curves could be pieced or they could be appliqued.  To be honest, I'd rather use a raw-edge fusible applique to get the look instead of curved piecing.  

Again I'm popping the block into a quilt-like arrangement just to see what secondary patterns emerge.  Sometimes the secondary patterns will then drive the direction the block design is going. 

This is kinda interesting.  When the curved sections come together in the center, they actually form another hour glass ... hmmm!  That could be fun to play with :) 

I truly love the opportunity to play and experiment with different blocks as part of the REMIX challenge.  I'm going to keep playing with this block, so be sure to watch for next week's Reveal post. 

Each Monday, the participating designers are sharing about the challenge on their Instagram feeds.  Some of us are adding other social media too.   If you don't already follow me on Instagram, I'm @masterpiecequilting 

Here is the list of Instagram handles of the participating designers.  Each of us are sharing our fabric pull and / or color scheme this week.   












An easy way to find the posts is using the following hashtags.  Just type them into the search box and the posts will show up. 













I can't wait to see what everyone is selecting for their fabrics and I hope that you will take a look too! Be sure to follow each of the designers so you don't miss their posts during this fun challenge.
