    There are some neat looking patterns created with her techniques. Her 10 minute blocks and the flying geese blocks are both based on ideas that were already in the quilt community. I wonder how she can claim them as her own?

    This is wonderful. I love her 10 minute blocks, and the 5 minute blocks seem even more versatile. Gotta add this to my growing bucket list. If I finish my list, I will be about 150 when I go!

    I love that look, so many different ways to use it too. thanks for sharing. I think that would be great in christmas type colors. Just added more to my "to make" list.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Well, I thought it was a great idea, too. So I tried a couple. I must be doing something wrong as the center edge that you fold up, comes up 1/4" short...I tried some different lengths, but that still didn't work. What I'm I doing wrong???

    This was posed on YouTube in 2009.

    Since this was posted by Ricky Tims, I don't see how she can claim all the credit. Besides, I'd learned the technique even before that, but it was called Dimensional Flying Geese.

    but everyone else can. People are kinda like that. ~~
