    Default Disappearing hourglass crazy eights quilt.

    I like the disappearing Hourglass and Triangle quilts. I saw this one and had to give it a try. I decided to make 2 blocks in two different colors combos and then before the final sew together take half of each block and switch them out. So each block has 4 colors in it rather than 2. Hope you like it. Have not gotten it quilted yet.

    Oh I love how this turned out! Was it a real nightmare laying it out? It looks like it must have been a little tricky, so easy to get a block turned the wrong way by mistake. You did a great job!

    This pattern is so busy - love the way you used the sashing/border fabric to "tame" it. Beautiful!

    The disappearing hourglass is very spectacular and with the fabrics you have used, it looks very nice and elegant, when quilting it will be a great quilt

    It's beautiful! You can see, all of the secondary patterns that are created by putting the blocks side by side.

    Amazing!
