August Muggamo

The August Muggamo pattern is here!

This is a simple, simple star, because we are entering into the "dog days" of summer now, and simple, quick and easy is important. 

If you are here for the Beginners Unite! series, it will post tomorrow, with an announcement for a quilt along. Come back for all the news!

Download the instructions HERE.

Cream - Four 2 1/2" squares
Green and Yellow - One 4" square
-Two 3 1/4" squares
*Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of all the yellow squares*
Blue - One 2 1/2" square

Make your half square triangles first with the 4" green and yellow squares. Here is a post on how to make Half Square Triangles.

Hourglass units

Sew 1/4"  on both sides of the drawn line.

I still chain piece, even though there are only a few units being made.

Cut on line. Press towards green.

Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of two HST units. Make sure the line is perpendicular to the seam.

Matching the units, opposite colors, sew 1/4" on both sides of the drawn line.

Cut on the line, press either way.

Square to 2 1/2". The pieces meet at the 1 1/4" mark.

Lay out your block.

Sew into rows first.

Then sew rows together.

Next sew the side piece, noting direction of HST.

Sew the star and side piece together.

Sandwich and pin.

Quilt. Once again I just did a quick stitch in the ditch.

Bind. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!

When you make your August Muggamo, use #muggamo on social media so I can see what you made!
