If you've hung around this blog for any amount of time, you know I love projects (knitting or otherwise) that look complicated... but really aren't!
When Mom first made the Disappearing Hour glass quilt, it looked crazy hard, and I just couldn't grasp how it went together. Then I saw the tutorial. I could totally do that!!!
I had an empty project box, so I figured the weekend was a good time to give it a whirl. As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm using the Atelier de France layer cake which is full of wonderful reds and browns.
The one thing I did learn with the practice block, is that it's much easier if you trim your hourglass block to a size that's easily divisible by three. My practice block came out to 13 inches square before slicing, and it was tough to figure out exactly where 4 1/3 inches was on my ruler. Squaring up to 12 3/4 inches meant I could slice at 4 1/4 inches, which was much easier to work with.
