    10-Minute Block - Opinions Please

    I've been working on this 10 minute block for the past couple of days. I started out with 10" squares, as the pattern called for, then decided it was way too big to get the desired result. So, this morning found me cutting all the squares down to 6", except the center floral square, which I've left at 10". I like it much better!

    I'm questioning layouts...they all seem to look like baseball diamonds! lol I guess that's ok, since it will be going to a DGS and wife who are very outdoorsy people. Maybe it takes on a whole different facet once quilted? I guess ultimately, it's simply a matter of taste? My plan, at this point, is to use bright yellow that matches the yellow in the floral fabric for one of the borders, probably the border closest to all the blue edges. We'll see.

    LOVE doing these blocks! They're very easy, and I plan to QAYG as much as possible to keep from having to manipulate the queen size on my home machine. I'll post an update with more photos as I get closer to finishing it.

    Thanks for looking!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    as you complete this top you will see more circles .. the baseball diamonds will have depth.. good luck ! like your colors. I have the flowered fabric myself for another project !!
    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.

    Did you try making your square blocks smaller ...
    just to see the difference?

    I like the third one best. Love the colors...my bedroom has pale yellow walls and the quilt is in yellow and blue flowers so I kinda biased...lol.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.
