    Is this the 10 min block?

    It looks like the 10 min block but she is showing more how she sewed the edge differently than how the block is made.

    Yes, that is the 10 minute block. She just gave it a different look by the way she rolled the edges and stitched them. Very attractive.

    ​It does a appear to be copied from the 10 minute block, that was copied from the faux Bow Tie block before that. She just divided it into more sections when she sewed back the edges.

    The way she folded her blocks is really pretty. Here's one of the videos made by Suzanne McNeill - you'll be able to find more:http://youtu.be/ZbTHlGGKMPM

    Yes, it is the 10-minute block. Thanks for the link; I enjoyed seeing her quilt and the different way she curved the edges. This way it looks more like a screened panel than a cathedral window.

    The center back looks different from the Suzanne McNeil block to me. Isn't it?

    I have that pattern and it was published by Shelly Swanland in 2004. It's still on my bucket list but I'm glad to see it on here, maybe it will be scooted up to the top of the list! I too, have a lot of Fairy Frost fabric that would look so good in that pattern.

    The finished block looks to be about 6", could be 6.5", judging by the cutting mat under the blocks. Start with 5 4" blocks and see if you like that , if not you can go larger or smaller.

    Are the side pieces actually curved or is that optical illusion?

    I made a 10 minute block and it used five 10" blocks. So figure 19 1/2" finished??? I suppose you could make it with any size block.

    When you roll the edges back they automatically curve at least mine did.

    Hmmm.. looks like they sewed the block together then sewed the top on like an applique.
    Look Suzanne Mc Neil up on You Tube and see how she does the 10 minute block. I have her book on it and its different than what I learned.

    Yes, I would say so. I made a quilt with the 10 min. block and my blocks looked like your one which is smooth--Green I believe. However, I have seen others so there are several variations on the original. Any version I am sure is fine. Mine had the between blocks as snowballs, and also snowballs in the border. Have had lots of compliments on it, and it should be snuggly warm this Winter! Good luck with your project! Mariah

    It is a 10 Minute block. I just made a whole top using them & did the cathedral roll on all of the centers. The idea of pinning the center & sewing down the sides is a great idea. I'll have to try that next time. These blocks are so quick to make. I love seeing them unfold to see how pretty they are.

    Just a 'warning' - I think Suzanne McNeil suggests using 10" squares. When you use them this big, the block is very easy to construct. I used this technique with 5" squares and found them to take twice as long because the smaller pieces are harder to manipulate. Maybe 8 or 9" squares? Even 7" would help but then they aren't precuts which sure are easy to use.
