PINK STARS quilt along - block #4

This week is the FOURTH week of
PINK STARS quilt along.

This quilt block is called
Dove at the window.

Here are the fabrics you will need for ONE block.
I am making TWO blocks for my quilt.

Background - eight (8) 3 1/2” squares
Blue - Four (4) 3 1/2” x 4 1/2” rectangles for star points
Pink - Two (2) 1 1/4” x 3 1/2” strips
Two (2) 1 1/4” x 2” strips

For hourglass block in the center
Background - One (1) 3” x 3” square
Blue - One (1) 3” x 3” square
This is enough for TWO hourglass blocks

All instruction is on my youtube channel this week.

First cut two sets of 2 rectangles OPPOSITE ways....
Corner to corner diagonally.

These are your star points.

Cover FOUR background squares with two star points each.

Make hourglass center square with 3” blue and 3” background squares.
Sew on either side of a pencil line and cut in half diagonally

Put these 2 half square triangles together....
Right sides together....
Blue facing background.

Sew on either side of pencil line
And cut in half diagonally.

Trim this little block to 2” x 2”

Surround it with your pink strips.

Sew it ALL together!!

Block measures 9 1/2”. Unfinished

Happy SEWING!!
