    Here's another one of those "I gotta do it" blocks. It really only takes 10 minutes to make the blocks once you have your squares cut. I made mine out of a "layer cake". I've been told this is something similar to a bow-tie block. But since I've never done a bow-tie block it is all new to me.

    Now I have to give the credit to CraftyBear. She gave a link to a block site on youtube and on the right-hand side was another link to this "10-Minute Block". So, being curious, I had to click on it to see what it was all about. OH MY GOSH - I had a layer cake I just bought so I had to try it. I got right on it and within an hour I made 8 blocks.

    You can really can make a quilt top so fast with 10 inch squares it turns your head, because a finished block is 20"x20". Check it out. I have made 4 more blocks to make a 3 block by 4 block top in Christmas fabrics, 12 blocks in all. They will make a 60x80 quilt top before sashings or borders. Need to decide if I want to add sashing or not and then it will be finished and I will post pics.

    You have to check this site out.

    This is like the one seam flying geese construction. Easy as Pie! I made the flying geese block 12" and put two together for the same look but this seems easier. Thanks for posting this.

    Do you have to make the block bigger then 10 inches to start?
    or just 10 inches.

    Aren't some people so creative....I can never think that stuff up, but am able to do the quilts once I see it. I will definitely try this out. The good thing about the technique is you can probably use any size block to start since all the 5 blocks are the same size.....no math involved. I'm going to try it having it look like a bowtie when it's finished.

    Yes, as long as all 5 squares are the same size, it will work.

    Yep, the book seems to be a good one to have on hand. I don't mind buying a book or pattern when the author shares the how tos for free. That to me deserves a book sale.
