    I did these 24 blocks while watching the college football game Sat night. I did them assembly line, but thought it worked out to pretty much "10 minutes" per block. Backing is fleece. I used a bag of 4 1/2 inch fabric squares I had on hands. Think the main thing on this block is that the 5 squares be the same size. However, if you wanted the inside block to be bigger in relation to the outside block, there is no reason you could not make that square larger.

    Love your quilt. Did you have any problems using 41/2 inch squares instead of the 10 inch? I like the smaller squares.

    Really nice....I like the idea of using what we have on hand and making a quick quilt now and then. Funny how sometimes those are the ones that are loved the most, by our loved ones! Maybe it is because it is a collection of fabrics they have seen you use, or perhaps because we spent time with them watching football while we made it....
    Whatever the case...I give you 3 thumbs up on this one!

    Love the bow tie-like block in the bottom right. A whole new way to approach this block. It opens a new design. Thanks.

    Very nice! I just ordered some cheap charm packs from connecting threads - this might be a good thing to use them on! What was your finished block size? My guess would be around 8", but wanted to check.

    I'm using an 6 inch block of this one.
    I'm just cutting the blocks out now till I get a machine to sew them.

    I have a few sewn till it bit the dust last week.

    Yes, the blocks finished at 8 inches (trimmed size, so guess the actual finished size would be 7.5 inches.

    That's what I was thinking! I had the actual block in mind, not sewn together so you figured out what I was trying to say! :thumbup: DH seems to like it so I might end up doing a king size with them... I have had a hard time finding something that he liked that would be simple enough for me to want to make a bunch of!

    None--I think if the blocks are all the same size, any size would work.

    I had not noticed that it made a bow-tie. Thanks for pointing it out. I had run out of matching blocks of fabric and was using 2 colors just to get enough blocks to finish the quilt top!
