    10-minute (several hour?) block lap quilt

    I have been wanting to make a quilt using the 10-minute block technique but didn't want to make 20 in. blocks. So finally decided on 5in. squares with the 5th square 7in. I also added a 4 1/4in square for the cathedral window.

    I was having problems with the crosss seam allowance being bulky and leaveing print of the seam after pressing the block, so decided to cut out the section from the back where the seams crossed.
    I don't know what these snippers are call but I used them for raggy quilts. They worked great, but have to be very carefull you don't cut the front side of you block.

    Is this pattern in a book, or is it available for free?

    10 minute block with military uniforms

    How ingenious to add the black to make the cathedral window effect! Also very smart to cut away the bulk. I made a 10 min block quilt out of my son's old military uniforms. I zipzaged all the seams open with that thread that dissolves when it gets wet. I sent it to the long armer that way. When he was done with the quilting, I washed it. It turned out well, the thread dissolved like it should and the quilting held the seams open. so that helped with the bulk. I gave it to my 9 yr old grandson for Christmas and he loved it. Nice to have something to cuddle with while daddy is deployed.
    Blessings!

    Oh my GOODNESS; beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I make all my 10-minute blocks with 5" squares but have never made one with all four squares the same like you did. Does that ever make the center stand out!!!! You're very clever to think of it; I sure never would have but it is absolutely stunning and inspiring!!
