I am absolutely loving these disappearing hourglass blocks. I've gotten a few comments on how complicated they look, so I thought I'd show you just how easy they are. (You can also view the tutorial here)
Starting with two 10 inch blocks, you make 4 half-square triangles and sew them into an hourglass block.
Then you turn all the outside block around 180°**
I can make one of these blocks in about 20 minutes now, so this project is going to go much quicker than I originally thought.
** After watching the tutorial again, I noticed that Jenny turns the centre block too, offsetting the fabrics. But it's too late for me now, and I don't mind the way mine look!
