Filler Blocks: Hourglass (various sizes)These are basic and easy, but the notes on the pattern and a little confusing; they say the "finished block measures 3 inches" but then you add various borders, so it would be clearer if it specified that the finished hourglass segment measures 3". Still, no problems with these. For the one in a frame set on point (top left in the photo below), I just used a bunch of triangle pieces that were already cut, instead of cutting new squares as the pattern suggested.

The directions for these were straightforward and well organized. For the largest sizes of these, I sewed a second seamline on the corners before cutting them off, so I also have a stack of 11 tiny pinwheels ready to make up. I think they're a little too small for the next set of fillers, but we'll see if I can make them work anyway.
