Assemble Hourglass Blocks


1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of blue print 11" squares. (To prevent fabric from stretching as you draw lines, place 220-grit sandpaper under each square.)

2. Layer a marked blue print square atop a brown floral 11" square. Sew pair together with two seams, stitching 1/4" on each side of drawn line. Cut pair apart on drawn line to make two triangle units (Diagram 1). Open triangle units and press seams open to make two large triangle-square units. Repeat to make four large triangle-square units total.

3. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line perpendicular to seam line on wrong side of two large triangle-square units.

4. Layer a marked large triangle-square unit atop an unmarked large triangle-square unit, aligning seam lines. Sew pair together with two seams, stitching 1/4" on each side of drawn line. Cut pair apart on drawn line to make two triangle units (Diagram 2). Open triangle units and press seams open to make two hourglass blocks. Each hourglass block should be 10-1/4" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make four hourglass blocks total.
