Disappearing hourglass with pre-cuts – video tutorial

This is one of those blocks that start with two squares. It can be made in different sizes though for this demo I’ve chosen a 10″ pre-cut also called layer cake.

The demo uses pre-cut 10″ squares, also called layer cakes, from the Michael Miller Collection Fairy Frost Metallic. In red and green this would make a great Christmas quilt.
