    Ok I was in that 10" square batik swap. I did 2 so I have 24 10" squares. My mom saw them and said that they would make a beautiful quilt. Do ya think it would look ok to either do 1/2 square triangles or to do the whole square and make it kind of a scrappy batik? Since Christmas is right around the corner I need something that is super duper easy!

    I made a few christmas quilts all 6 1/2 inch blocks but I used a design. I love them and was able to make the tops in a day. I added a border to one of them...not this one to make it a bit bigger. These make really nice lap quilts or twin size quilts. I use flannel for the backing.

    i'd go for hst's. you could put two together and draw a diagonal line from corner to corner and stitch on either side a 1/4 inch seam and cut on the drawn line. then you have two hst's. then just have fun putting them all together.

    HST would be great. I also think batiks would make really cute 10 minute blocks.

    Anything you do with batiks is okay with me! I too would like to know what a 10 minute block is. Think I will try the search feature here to see what I find. I tend to forget about it.

    Carolaug, thanks for the website for the ten minute blocks. I just watched the video and I think I can make them. I'm still so new to all of the quilting techniques and being self taught, I often don't know what to look for outside of my quilting magazines.

    you get a nice contrast of lights and darks with HST if you lay them out in rows diagonally.
