    These easy to make blocks add great accents to any quilt.

    You know I had my head tilted and sideways they look a little like bowtie blocks. Very nice looking, one of some day projects to try :)

    It looks like the 10 minute block. Nice work!

    This is probably a stupid question but I'm going to ask anyway. How did you hem the center square?? Just 1/4" all around before you sewed it into the center?? So, how big do you have to cut it then?? See, told you dumb question. :? Maybe 1/2" bigger than the 4patch?? No, 1/4"

    This is so cool and it looks very easy to do. I've always wanted to do a cathedral windows quilt but it looked to hard. Thanks for sharing this.

    A legitimate question!
    The trick: the basic is a pink, and the extra is a more black, then I folded the edge of pink piece!
