    okay. I did a search to see what a 10MB was out of curiosity, thinking I might like to try it if I liked what I saw and sure enough I already know this block but by a different name. I know it as a Dimensional Bow Tie. I found this pattern in 1999 in a book titled: Memory Quilts in the Making by Oxmoor House. This is a great little book! Lots of old fashion patterns and new ones too, all designed to make memories!

    So , just how far back does the history of this block go? Is there any more info out there?

    The first time I saw it I thought it reminded me of the bowtie. Quilters will always reinvent blocks and give them new names, it happens all the time.

    I made the block over a year ago as "bow tie". I found it extremely easy and I think if you work it thinking its a bow tie it goes together easier.

    Its the technique that is new. The standard bowtie does not go together with 3 straight seams. It is more complicated and you can't do the cathedral technique on it either.

    I agree. One block can have several names such as the block Monkey Wrench, Hole in the Barn Door, and Churn Dash which are the same block.

    About 8 years ago, I made a block called dimensional bowtie. It is the 10 minute block. I also made a dimensional spools block by using half sq. triangles in 2 of the corners. It looked like a wooden spool with thread.
