How to make an hourglass block
Watch the video, it only goes for one minute. And if you want to be notified every time I upload a video subscribe to my YouTube channel. Enjoy!
You only need two 5 inch squares in contrasting fabrics or four if you want to make 4 blocks as shown on the photo above.
I used 5 inch squares but this block can be made in any size, large or small. Just add 1 1/4 inch to the side of the QST you want to obtain. For instance if you want to do two 5 inch hourglass blocks, cut two 6 1/4 inch squares.
On the video tutorial you will find other alternative arrangements to the one on the photo.
