    10 minute quilt block

    There is a tutorial on Youtube.com for a 10 minute quilt block. I made a few blocks. The 10 in. is way toobig for me because it ends up being 20" so I made my blocks 8 in. ad love them. You can do a cathedral window on the center, a focus fabric, applique , a red work image whatever you like.
    Check it out it is really a good ideal !

    just go to youtube & type in 10-minute quilt block in the search engine. It'll come up. I think the video is only about 10 minutes long.

    I'm in the middle of making one right now!

    I agree, too big for my taste. This one is on my design board, not sewn together yet. I cut my squares 5 inch and the middle one 8 inch. I love it!

    It's interesting to see the various ways this block can be used - with large centers, with small centers, with a great variety of color placements. Thanks for this new posting about it.

    Thanks for the info.

    When I looked up the 10 minute one, I found a 5-minute version.

    I think it takes the average person a little more than 10 minutes if their fabric is already cut, but definitely worth it.
    I got the pattern free, but loved it so much I bought book #2.
    I can't imagine a 5 minute. I can really make a mess in 5 minutes, lol
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !

    I've made this block a few times and the center always comes out "puffy". Is it supposed to be like that? Is it possible to make this block so the center comes out flat? Thanks.

    I used four 9" blocks & a 7" block for the center one as I was working with fat quarters & that was the most economical sizes to use!

    10 minute blocks are so much fun and they really are 10 minutes per block. To answer someone's question on puffiness, just be sure that when you sew the final seam, that the fabric is as flat as you can get it (its a little awkward). And if it is puffy, don't worry, you can quilt it out.

    I attached a picture of a baby quilt I made using the block. I folded UNDER (not over) the center block sides and hand stitched them down just to neaten the look.

    I tried the 10 minute blocks without the book. When I made like 14 blocks I knew I had to have the book. When it came I got carried away and made like 30 of the things!! I made them with black and white blocks with floral inside block. It rarely took over 8-9 minutes to complete one block once you get the hang of it. Good luck to all that gives it a try, I think you'll be happy with them.
    Thank You Lord for answering my prayers, in this I am truely blessed!

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.
