disappearing hourglass

Wondering if anyone has tried this neat "dis" hourglass. It looks like fun and easy, but that is not always true with all the cutting and rearranging. I found it on missouri quilting co.videos, and she is easier to listen to than EB.

Do you have a link?

Hi there Ladies!!! Nice to 'see' you both! :~)

Below is a link to a completed quilt and the tutorial on Missouri Quilts. I have squares from 1/2 a layer cake and I am thinking of using them using this method. It is pretty. I think the success of all these slice and rearrange blocks is very accurate cutting.

Yes! I've been wanting to make one ever since I saw the video a couple of weeks ago, but was waiting to see a quilt and to hear if anyone had played around with sizes for the 4 HST. Will now probably wait until I get back home.

I just happened to check that site out day before yesterday for something new and watched that, thinking "maybe I'll try that". But I have a project going right now and can't do anything until I finish it. (That's just me.)

Marsha, I did a search on MSQ but without success, so Thanks a heap for posting.
It's a nice looking block, and I can see making a few in the future, but for me, I couldn't do a whole quilt in these. I'd have blocks turned every which way! Lol
I have used the method of sewing all four sides and then cutting for the pinwheel block. I get the bias edge issue, but I found spraying with a lite coating of starch worked. I imagine that would be needed for this block as well.
Good luck Buteau3rd and nice to hear from you!

Hi Marge, how have you been? It is on my list, too. Here is a link to Missouri Star's video. They just sew around the outside of a 10 in square to make the HSTs.

I really love the idea of what looks like the squares are arranged in rows as usual,not from corner to corner, because the sashing is part of the square, ( Lots of bias seams!)
Thanks to all.....It's nice to be back. Maybe I'll try a pillow first to see if it is too bothersom for a queen size.

The missouri quilting link you all sent isn't the same as the one my granddaughter sent so I will ask her tomorrow to resend the picture. It looks like it is on point, but ...........sorry! I will send the picture of the one she wants.

RE: disappearing hourglass

Wrong square! She actually wants the lattice, which is on pointe with lots of bias piecing.
I think this other choice is easier.....and I really do like it. I think I will see if missouri quilts has a tutorial for it.
Thank you all for responding. I will try the other anyway...looks interesting!
