How to Make Hourglass Wreath Quilt

Step 1:

Get one solid 10″ square and cut 2 1/2″ off from one side and on the bottom. Now you have the center block. Out of the 2 1/2″ strips, cut 2 1/2″ squares. You need for of 2 1/2″ squares for your block and set aside the others for your cornerstones.

Step 2:

Make half-square triangles. Lay a white square on top of a colored square. Draw diagonal line from corner to corner in both directions then in the middle horizontally and vertically. Sew 1/4″ away from both sides of the lines. Cut directly on the lines. Press them open.

On the back of half of the half-square triangles, draw a diagonal line across the two fabrics. Place them on top of the other half-square triangles without the line in the opposite direction. Sew 1/4″ away from both sides of the lines. Cut in the line. Square the hour glass into 4 inches, then press them open.

Sew the hourglass blocks in pairs color to color. You need 4 pairs.

Arrange them just like in the photo below. Sew them together to form the block.
