Here is our second pieced block (and fifth block overall) for our 2014 Do You See… Block of the Week. I’m calling it Christmastime because of the Hourglasses in the design.
But you won’t be making any Hourglasses for this block. Just Half Squares!
This is a pretty complicated block so work for accuracy in your seam allowance and in your cutting. The Half Square Triangles are just a bit oversized so trim them down as stated and you won’t have to worry about your stitching being perfect with those.
Hope you are having fun with these blocks. They are gonna Make A Great (Christmas) Quilt!

Please do check out my Craftsy Pattern Store where you can purchase immediate downloads of my patterns… and some new free patterns too!
My Early Spring Pattern, above, is now available at my Craftsy Store. Made with just FIVE great fabrics (These are all from Hoffman California Fabrics) to set up a great dynamic. But I must confess, the quilt started out as a swap of ten inch squares, so a layer cake or Cracker (also from Hoffman) would work great too! Make your own version of Early Spring and send me a pic! Thanks!
