I have been in the dark in more ways than one, in that somehow I missed the whole disappearing hourglass movement. Having done some disappearing pinwheel blocks, I had to try this one! I put the squares together in a couple of hours. They are 17 inches finished. I wanted them large because I wanted to see the fat quarters in the finished product. It was a fantastic use of a fat quarter bundle.
After finishing the squares and adding a 4.5 inch border, I felt like it needed more.....so I added two inch border of squares and another 2 inch plain border.
I really think this flimsy is complete. Now to get her my Millie.
