Hourglass Stars Wall Hanging

Sew a bright wall hanging using lime green, pink, orange, purple, and brown prints from the whimsical Fandango collection for Henry Glass & Co. With careful fabric selection, you can highlight the quilt’s star or hourglass blocks. Fabric placement in the hourglass blocks also creates a secondary star design.

Assemble Star Blocks


1. Sew together a mottled purple medium triangle and a white tone-on-tone medium triangle to make a triangle-square (Diagram 1). Press seam toward mottled purple triangle. The triangle-square should be 2-1/2" square including seam allowances.

2. Repeat Step 1 to make four matching triangle-squares total.

3. Referring to Diagram 2, sew together a white tone-on-tone B triangle, lime green print A triangle, and white tone-on-tone B reversed triangle to make a star point unit. Press seams toward B triangles. The star point unit should be 2-1/2" square including seam allowances.

4. Repeat Step 3 to make four matching star point units total.

5. Referring to Diagram 3, sew together triangle-squares, star point units, and a mottled purple 2-1/2" square in rows. Press seams away from star point units. Join rows to make a purple star block. Press seams in one direction. The star block should be 6-1/2" square including seam allowances.

6. Repeat steps 1–5 to make a second purple star block.

7. Using mottled red medium triangles and 2-1/2" squares, repeat steps 1–5 to make two red star blocks.
