    Red face Easiest Quilt Block You've Ever Made?

    My quilting group is having its fall retreat and wants everyone to submit the easiest quilt block they know. Mine would be the 10 minute block, or a simple 4 patch. What would yours be?

    4 patch is quickier and easier but ive tried the 5 min block and it was fun once i got the concept of it.
    take plenty of pic of family & friends, keep tabs on loved ones but make time for yourself !

    Anything I can strip piece and slice again! Rail fence, warm wishes, etc.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I guess I would have to say the snowball block. Even though there are a few extra steps, I find it quite easy to do!

    Now you know you will have to bring a solid piece/block of fabric for the easiest block as a gag. I think the easiest block I enjoy the most is the Snowball block.

    What's the difference between the 5-minute block and the 10-minute block?

    It is "easy" to do, but time consuming IMO.

    I have made the snowball block, disappearing 9 patch, 10 minute block, and a turning twenty quilt, but my favorite easiest is the rail fence.

    I've done both 10 minute block and rail fence -- think 10 minute block is easier/faster. Enjoy your retreat.

    I believe the 10 minute block that they are referring to is the one that has the 4 patch background with a the 3D block in the center. It resembles the Bow Tie block and may also be under the name easy Bow Tie or Faux Bow Tie block. The person who came out with a book and a You tube video on making the 5 minute block is same person the did the 10 minute block. The 5 minute block is the same one that Ricky Tims demonstrates as the easy Flying Geese block. OR it could be another block...that is the trouble when people use a name that is already taken or rename a technique.

    My favorite is one I call a wonky crazy or log cabin. Start with a five sided shape and then add strips or chunks of fabric around it. Can be used in so many ways and is a real stash buster!
