    I never thought to worry about the waste of fabric for this block. The ease of it is worth more to me then saving a little fabric. I used layer cake pre cut fabric and had enough blocks sewn for a quilt top in less then 20 min. No cutting or measuring just straight chain piecing. Great for a fast quilt that looks time consuming. I look at my stack of layer cake bundles and see quilts!
    Got fabric?

    I love Suzanne McNeil's books! I'm waiting for the 5-minute block book to come to my LQS...Thanks for sharing the info!
    When someone mentions quilting, I go to pieces!

    So, the measurements for this block is basically a 10" square cut in half? I tried this last night and came up short on one end of the triangle. How do you fix?? HELP!! Thanks!!

    The rectangle size is important to get the two to match up. I found that out when I cut a 10" square in half and sewed the block. The goose block was too long when pressed opened. The book has a size to cut the fabric for a small or large block so they sew up perfectly. This is left out of the youtube video.

    Which book do you have? I want to get one, but don't know which one to get first. There is also the 5 minute block, right? how about that one?

    There are three books, two for the 10 minute blocks and one for the 5 minute block. I bought all three at one time so I can't offer which one is the best to get first. These type of books go out of print fast.
