    TY. My DH enlarged the Alabama "A" so I could draw a stencil for quilting. The only problem I found was the lady I made it for wanted double batting in it and I think it was too much. But I like how it turned out, otherwise.

    When I did the 10 minute blocks, one end was always funky (the middle piece). I had to pin the heck out of it and when I sewed it, it pinched the fabric at that end. Every block was the same. Anyone else have that problem? It was like there wasn't enough fabric for the middle piece. And I was using layer cake pieces.

    OK I save the utube under the favorites. Then I go and look for it and can't find it. Where does it go ?
    Thank,

    the blocks are easier to do the larger they are. i did some with charms and really did pin a lot!! maybe that was your trouble.

    Yes , they look like Bow Tie Blocks , but they are 3D. I love making them . Even small ones. I find I just have to pin the center & then sew to the center & then work in the last half.

    I just learned about the 10 minute block last week and I love how it is turning out. Right now I am working on a Dallas Cowboys quilt for my sil and it is working up fast. But I also have a lot of other irons in the fire at this time as well...anyway, I just had to learn how to do it and I like it!
