    I just purchased the book "10 Minute Blocks" by Suzanne McNeil, and would like to know if any of you have used this (3-Seam Square) method. I'm interested in using this, but would like to make the main blocks small. Thanks for any imput.

    You can make them any size. Just make different sizes until you find the size you like. There was a post on here with three different sizes. I'll see if I can find it.

    For the 10 minute block, all the squares are cut the same size. Just pick a finished size you want for the entire block, and divide by 4 for the individual square size (don't forget to include seam allowances in your math.)
