Start Square Week 1 - Assembly Option 1

Hourglass

Basic Block Tutorial

This is the basic hourglass design. You'll notice that some of your triangles have the background color on the right and some have it on the left. This is fine. 



Your hourglass blocks will be made of 2 pieces that are the same (when they are stacked the background must be on the same side). 




Turn that bottom piece 180 degrees.



Place them right sides together and sew along the longest side (hypotenuse). The seams should nest nicely. Press the seam to one side.



This will yield an 8.5" block, 8" when finished. Layout as desired, alternating the direction of the blocks.

 *These are not sewn together, just hanging on my design wall. Yours should fit together nicely! :)*
