#109 and #6

Windows and the Big dipper.  These are just simple hourglass blocks.  These are so similar that I decided to post them together.

#109 Windows

  • 2 dark/2 light triangles with a 2" strip and Companion Angle (CA)
  • 2 - 2" x 3 1/2" dark
  • 2- 2" x 6 1/2" dark
Join each both light triangles to the dark triangles to make an hourglass block.  Add the dark 2" x 3 1/2" dark strips to the top and bottom (press out); Add the dark 2" X 6 1/2" strips to the sides.

#6 Big Dipper
  • 8 Dark/8 Light triangles cut with CA and 2" strip
Join each light to a dark triangle.   Make sure you sew them all the same.  I pressed toward the dark for the hour glass blocks, and I pressed the seams of the 4 hour glass blocks joined together open.

The first day of spring and it feels like summer where I live.  I am enjoying the record setting temperatures, but I know it can't last.  My flowers are blooming  and they are beautiful this year.
