    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.

    Jenny Doan showed me how to do the shuffling yesterday. But I think you will be able to do it by looking at the picture.

    Thanks for making this so simple to reference. Woman have always enjoyed "options". We can now enjoy either the tute you shared with us, or MSQC video. Either way, there will be many quilters making this newest quilt. Eye candy for sure Thank you !

    Fabulous photo instructions, have the pictures printed out on both sides of a paper. Made notes on each picture to do everything in the proper steps. That way I will just have to use 1 sheet of paper to follow the steps to make them.
    Thank you so much for the time spent to show us how it is done.

    Love the tut but have a question; do you end up with bias edges on the finished block?

    Most of the re-cut blocks have bias edges. Starch your fabric well and handle carefully. The pieces do stretch but that helps to line up the pieces. All the pieces end up with bias edges. I will post a picture with the grain lines in the white so you can see. I didn't mark the lavender but they are bias also.
