Today is the winter solstice—the shortest day of the year. Jack Frost has officially arrived with his chilly days and long, icy nights. But believe it or not, there are a few flowers that manage to thrive in the midst of such inhospitable weather!
English primrose brightens even the grayest winter day. Pansies add a splash of color against the pure white snow. But my favorite blooms of all are found on Jenny’s new Flower Glass quilt. These simple petals and hourglass blocks will keep you cozy all winter long!
This week’s new quilt combines two classic blocks, so please be sure to gather all the supplies necessary for both. (You might want to grab a pen. I’ll wait.)
Are you ready? Ok, in order to build an entire quilt’s worth of nine patches and hourglasses, you’re going to need: 10-inch squares. That’s it! The end! Finito!
Don’t you just love the ease of this four patch turned hourglass!? We chose to use a mixed charm pack of solids for this one, but it would be so cute with just two contrasting fabrics like a pattern and a solid. This pattern is perfect for last minute shower gifts too!

For many Olympians, it’s all about speed, and the difference between last place and gold can be a matter of mere hundredths of a second! If speed-quilting were an Olympic event, surely the gold medal would go to Jenny and her Super Easy Hourglass quilt. This block can be constructed at lightning speed, and it’s so darn cute!
