QuiltCon Block Challenge - Improvisational Hourglass Block

I'm so excited to share the news that another one of my block has been featured on the The Modern Quilt Guild website today.

I actually first worked on the following block, but this ended up measuring 14.5 square, so I had to changed my design  a little bit and came up with this improvisational Hourglass block below this one. Its an simple but clean block. Love the look of it.
My original block
I really like my original block and the strips from it. Didn't want to trim them down to fit the 12.5inch height limit for the QuiltCon block challenge. So I made a design change to include(or keep) all the strips to be within the 12.5inch height limit. Here it is with the new design:


Hop on over to Modern Quilt Guild website to check out the other wonderful blocks.
