Women of Courage - Block 8!

Yesterday, I did get another Month done on my Women of Courage Block of Month.  Month 8 was "Mary Wilson".  She was an Operating Room Supervisor for a field hospital on Anzio beach during World War II.    She was the first woman to be awarded the Silver Star for leadership under fire.  

The block is fairly easy to make,  you start with the pieces, which are just triangles and squares.  You are going to make 8 of these blocks.

You start with making 16 hour glass units, by sewing the triangles together.

Then you make 8 half-square triangle units.

Wants all the units are made your just need to assemble the blocks, by sewing the brown squares to half of the hour glass units, with the blue pointing to the top.  Then sewing the other half of the hour glass units to the half square triangles.  Making sure the blue of the hour glass is pointing to outside.

Once you have those done all you have to do is sew them together to complete the block.

The finished block will measure 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" unfinished.  I'm getting closer to be able to start assembling the blocks and getting this one done.

Well off to the sewing room, so make more blocks done.  Have a great sewing day!
