The change of seasons became the inspiration to try out hourglass blocks. I loved how easily they went together!
Pull out one background and one color 3.5-inch squares.
Mark on the diagonal and stitch 1/4 inch on each side of the line.
Cut on the line and press to the colored fabric.
Flip one over so the seams nest and draw another line across the diagonal.
Stitch 1/4 inch on each side again.
Cut on the line and press open.
TA DA! Two hourglass blocks. Then make two more the same way. Pair up with three background and one gold 2.5-inch blocks (9-patch style) and they turn into Ohio Stars!
