    Try looking at the ten minute block, I think it may be what you are looking for. Good luck :-D

    It is a simple 9 patch, made from 9 squares of the same size. Many times, but certainly not always, the corners and center are one color and the others another. This is the first block I did and presents few hazards for a newby.

    Make 3 rows and press them. When you sew them together, be sure to pin and sew so that the seam allowance on top reaches the needle before the previous seam does. This way, the patches will be locked into the right position. If you do it the other way, they will tend to be pushed apart, so that your seams won't line up. If that is not clear, I can make photos for you.

    QM, the block I am thinking about is the exactly like the one that Beverly posted.
    The one your describe above sounds interesting and would be great for another day, there is just too many blocks to sew in a lifetime, no wonder this hobby is adicting LOL

    Thanks for your help though

    I think I found a quilt with a similar block to what I was thinking of on Elizabeth Hartmans blog

    Try looking at www.maryquilts.com she has a block called 'Boxed squares' using a jelly roll. I'm just doing it! Goes together really quickly! Have fun!!
