Cut 4 neutral and 4 red squares at 3 & 7/8 inches, then cut once on the diagonal as pictured.
Red triangles will be sewn to the four patch as pictured. Make sure to line up the point of the triangle with the middle seam of the 4 patch.
Now cut 2 neutral squares at 7 & 1/4 inches. Cut on the diagonal twice as pictured.
Block 8 Hour Glass Mosaic-
First I want you to see the different units in the block.
now a more complicated division of the units...
Cut 6 pink, 8 navy, and 6 green squares that measure 3 & 7/8 inches. Then cut these squares once on the diagonal as pictured below and just like we have done in all the steps up to this one. .
You will sew 2 sets of a pink to a navy along the short side. Lay them out first and then put them together to make the center unit, circles above. Be sure to match the center seam just as you do in a four patch. Then you will make 4 sets of the green to navy to make the green & Navy hourglass units.
Now you will make the half hour glass units that is circled below. You need two of these units in each block but the units have the green and the navy in opposite places so make sure you lay them out. You are using, for each unit, one small green triangle, one small navy triangle, and then you have to cut the larger pink triangles by cutting 2 green and 1 pink squares at 7 & 1/4 inches.
Good luck with this one- and if you need help, do not hesitate to comment here or email me.
Additional strips to cut: 1 pink strip and 1 red strip: 2 & 1/2 by width of fabric -add to your Ziploc bag!
I now have to go correct my second block of this last one because I sewed the hour glass units in the wrong orientation. It makes a different block all together!
Plan for the rest of today: Fix that block! Work on Customer Quilt, start a little project for treadling!
