    Disappearing Hourglass 12 and 1/2

    Hopefully I will try to load these in order. First picture, cut 2 -10 and 1/2 inch contrasting squares. Sew them one on top of the other with a 1/4 inch seam all around the outside. Cut on the diagonal to form 4 pieces.

    Iron the squares open and they should measure 7 inches square. If necessary trim but use your ruler on the 45* degree line on the seam.

    Thank you for taking the time to post this. I had saved the video so I can go back and watch it again and again, but now I can just copy & print your very clear tute and keep it near me.
