Disappearing hourglass eight ways!

image

I took an EBHQ fabric marbling class on Monday. Above are three of the eighteen fabric pieces I dyed. I showed them at the East Bay Modern Quilters meeting on Tue. Stacey asked me what I was going to do with the fabric? I answered, ‘I have no idea’. Today I decided to use one for a 12 x 12 disappearing block for the 12 x 12 meeting next week. Here is  as an hourglass block.

I decided that black was the best color to contrast with the marbled fabric. Then I cut it into nine pieces, measuring the first cut 2 1/4″ from the center seam.

I discovered  eight different ways to rearrange the pieces. Below is #1.

Number 1 is the way I sewed it together. I have lots of time to quilt it before next Tuesday.
