    5 minute block baby quilt by Suzanne McNeill

    You have GOT to try this block. It really does go together in 5 minutes - I timed it! This one is a baby quilt for my nephew. I hand stitched each of the white pinwheels to make the curved edge and I echo quilted the red/white pinwheels formed by the pattern on my mid arm machine. Suzanne's tute is excellent and easy to follow. There are several ways to put the blocks together if you don't like pinwheels.

    I love this! I can see how it would just take a couple of minutes to do each block. Very nice! I'm hoping the tute is here on the QB. Off to look for it now ...

    Great Quilt! I like how she uses it to do a scalloped border treatment too.

    OK, after searching, I came up with a YouTube video on it and found the book on Amazon.

    Here is a video on doing this block. It sure looks easy!

    Below is the link to Suzanne's book on Amazon - I think its $12.95 plus shipping.

    http://www.amazon.com/Five-Minute-Qu.../dp/1574214209

    According to her blog, the 3 pieces for the large blocks are 5 1/4 x 10" and the 3 pieces for the small blocks are 2 7/8 x 5 1/4". BTW - i know everyone hates to cut 7/8 increments but in this case try as much as possible to do so - if you don't you will end up with an overhang on the raw edge when you fold the triangle down.

    Couldn't one do it with three 6.5 x 3.5 rectangles?
    Deb Watkins - I woke up today on the right side of dirt. It is a good day.

    Deb I tried that size and it worked. see the pics below. Not sure how Suzanne scaled it for the smaller block but this makes a nice approx. 6.5" block when finished off. And it sure is easier to cut!
    Many thanks though to Suzanne for the pattern, the tutorial and the book. it s a great block, very versatile, and goes together quickly.

    Good morning Dianne! I have looked every where for this book. Where did you purchase it? I'm making a quilt with the five minute blocks but, would love this book for all the different projects.
