    I watched the whole video...the quilts using this simple block is amazing. Has anyone else made these? This is not the 10 min block, which was also pretty cool. I do like this look better though.

    I love the scalloped circle place mat. That one design sold me on the book.
    Got fabric?

    For some reason it's on a long order from Amazon. I ordered one and it will be a one to two month shipping time. I could order it at other websites but pay over twice as much plus shipping. I don't mind waiting for the book.

    I want to do this NOW! Has anyone tried it. What sizes are the pieces of fabric? Does it matter as long as they are all the same size? I need to make a Halloween gift. I think I see a Halloween table runner done with a few 5 minute blocks!

    I was thinking the same thing about the wasted fabric used to make the "pocket".

    It seems like an easy block...I just don't want to waste fabric (unless I am missing something with the extra fabric).

    Have a great weekend everyone

    I also would rather not waste the material, but if I have to in order to get this great block, I guess I'll have to.
    Does anyone have a secret so material is not wasted?
