About this Quilt
Finished Size : 80" x 92"
Rating : Intermediate
Designed By : Lisa Swenson Ruble
Varying lengths of strips in solid colors with a striking contrast create the illusion of an hourglass—but also diamonds, an elongated hexagon, and a bright yellow X. The Hourglass Quilt shown was cut from yardage, but using pre-cut strips will save you hours of rotary cutting.
