Today let's look at this variation of the Hourglass quilt block. This is an easy block to make with only two basic units to sew together. At first I couldn't see how this could be considered an Hourglass block until I had finished it. Consequently, I made the block how I saw it (a Square in a Square block surrounded by Half Square Triangles). Just goes to show that there are different ways to construct the same block!
The Duck Tracks quilt block is an easy pattern and goes together quickly. I've made my sample with a light background but the pattern looks good with a dark background and lighter fabrics for the star design.
