"Me Sew Happy" Quilt Along Week Five

Updated: May 8

Week Five - 29 April-6 May


This week we make the Bigger Hourglass Blocks - woohoo! the last of your blocks!! Now that you have conquered the Smaller Hourglass Blocks these will seem like a breeze! Remember that it's worth having a re-read of my tips regarding pinning & flipping seams to help with your joins.


This week's Instagram homework:

  1. search our hashtag (#mesewhappyquilt), & take a look at the Smaller Hourglass Blocks that have been shared so far. Some fabulous stitching is taking place & that has "me sew happy"!!

  2. share a picture of all four Bigger Hourglass Blocks together - I love seeing your posts!


This week's "Me Sew Happy" target:

  1. prepare the fabrics that you'd like to use for this week's blocks. These Bigger Hourglass Blocks are perfect for small to medium sized prints. Again, variety is the key, not too much of any one fabric.

  2. iron your fabrics before you cut - this ensures a better finish

  3. enjoy making all four Bigger Hourglass Blocks

  4. your Instagram homework (above)


There will be one final "Me Sew Happy" Giveaway will be announced here next week!


And, don't forget last week's Super Special Quilting Offer: my friend Judy, of Furball Farm Quilts machine quilted my "Me Sew Happy" quilt. This is the fifth quilt that Judy has done for me & I have been delighted with them all - there has never been an issue, & always with friendly & efficient service. Judy used the design 'Eye Appeal' for my quilt & you can see it in more detail if you scroll back through my Instagram posts. I think it works a treat with this pattern. As we commenced this quilt along, I reached out to Judy to see if she might have a special offer for "Me Sew Happy" Quilt Along participants & she has delivered! The details are below:

  • a 20% discount off your choice of quilting designs

  • plus, Judy can also provide the wadding at a 20% discount

  • if you're interested, simply follow Judy on Instagram (@furball_farm_quilting) & send her a message

Until next week... Happy Hourglass sewing!


From These Clever Hands, to Yours...
