    The construction is different. There are triangles in the bow tie and the 10 minute is done with squares and just three seams.

    I have done the 10 min. block using 2 different fabrics. The way it is laid out and sewn up is different. Very alike.

    A lady in my quilt group showed this block a couple of years ago and called it a 3D bow tie I made a baby quilt with 6 1/2" blocks in this quilt but the 10 minute block is bigger and you can turn the edges of the center square in for a completly different block and it is bigger so goes a lot faster thus the 10 minute block! I love it but it still takes me 20 minutes!! :)

    3D needs binding in this pic

    I also read that you can make the central square bigger if you want, for a different look

    It looks like you can use the 10 minute block technique to make a bow-tie block, if you want.

    you can, you just have put the colors in the right places when setting the squares.
