    remember those ugly pants? Here's what they are now...

    I posted a photo of pants I found at the thrift store - so ugly...but look what I have done with them thus far. I still have to put on the 3 borders and if I have enough I may also piece another border.
    It is called the 5 minute block. I like it a lot, what about you?

    The floral quilt is the 10 minute block and it will have the purple and white borders added. Talk about colorful....

    That fabric was hideous as pants but you made something really beautiful from it! Just goes to show that there's beauty hidden in everything if you look for it. The floral is lovely and spring like.

    You certainly turned them into something beautiful.

    A lot of people have said that the 10 minute block takes longer than 10 minutes, does the 5 minute block take 5 minutes? Or more?

    OMG, who would have worn those? And who would have bought them now, except a quilter? It looks fantastic.
    I just saw the 5 minute block video the other day, yours turned out great. The 10 minute block quilt is very appealling also.

    what's that they say?... cut it up small enough and it's no longer ugly. That quilt is terrific! nice job on the 10 min block too.
