    10 Minute Nap - Vintage look quilt

    Here's one of three quilts I've made for a family reunion this summer. My family (myself, 2 sons, 1 DIL and 1 GD) have rented a cabin and we (meaning I) have to provide our own linens. Since I'm the vintage member of the group, this will probably be on my bed. It's the 10 minute block - that takes considerably more than 10 minutes - but I like it, since you end up with a BIG block.

    Very pretty! I don't usually go for the softer colors, but that one is lovely.

    Great job! It looks so comfy and inviting. Great use of the color yellow. I might just need to print this picture as it inspires me to use that mountain of vintage fabrics.

    it is beautiful, if I am looking at it right, you first did half square triangles for the large blocks and then put them together in the regular way? it is a beautiful variation.

    Thanks - actually I treated the large squares with yellow 10 min centers as four corner squares of an even larger square and inserted another yellow center into them. Also, I made half square triangles of the original 10 inch layer cake squares to mix up the fabrics a little. Design wall was very important in keeping things organized . . . . .

    OOPS - actually I cut two 9" squares from 12 fat quarters to start out - not 10" layer cake - then I had enough fabric from the fat quarters to do the piano key border.

    I really like what you did with this pattern! I think I need to give this one a try. It looks fairly easy, although I keep reading that it is NOT a 10 minute block! lol BUT, as you pointed out, the blocks are very large, so it would most likely make a very quick quilt top. Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
