You can be a quilting magician when you put together this Disappearing Hourglass Quilt Block. This quilt block looks time consuming, but that's another one of its deceptions! This hourglass quilt is quick and easy, especially if you use charm squares because then half the work is done for you. There is even a video tutorial that is two minutes long, which means that you can learn how to quilt this block in less that five minutes. You can use three colors of fabric or just two, depending on what you have on hand.
