This week's block is an Ohio Star.
For one 7" block you will need -
Print A (mine is the orange dots) -
4 - 2+7/8" squares (for the corners)
2 - 3+3/4" squares (for the Hourglass blocks)
Print B (mine is the brown print) -
2 - 3+3/4" squares (for the Easy Hourglass blocks)
Print C (mine is the red print) -
1 - 2+7/8" square (for the centre)
My instructions are getting less detailed (please let me know if you would prefer more details, I just assume that it is becoming repetitive over the weeks), but remember to cut accurately, sew scant 1/4" seams......
Start by making the Easy Hourglass blocks (all the instructions can be found here) with the 3+3/4" Print A and Print B squares - matching one square of each together.
This will make 4 Hourglass units, that need to be trimmed to 2+7/8".
All the pieces will be arranged like the above photo, and sewn together like a regular Nine-Patch.
Trim the block to 7+1/2".
My other blocks -
For this one I only cut one Print A 3+3/4" square and I cut a Print D 3+3/4" square.
The Easy Hourglass blocks where made just the same. Starting with a Print A square matched to a Print B, and a Print D matched to a Print B, then matching the opposite half square triangles together like the above photo.
This one I challenged myself to make Easy Hourglass blocks out of striped fabric! The stripes had to go at 90° to each other for the first half square triangles - once again, probably just me.
All three blocks together. We have past the half way point on the blocks now!
Have a great day and thanks for quilting along!❤
