    Christian's 10-minute block (NOT) quilt

    Chrisrtian is turning 13 at the end of the month and is so much like a puppy trying to grow up. I tried to make his quilt as masculine as possible. The ten minute blocks took much longer than 10 minutes LOL. And though I am new to quilting, I have never un-sewed so much in my entire life. But I finally got it to where I am proud to give as a gift!!

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    This is one of my fav blocks to make. Just love what you did. Definately not a little boy quilt. Job well done. Now on to the next quilt! LOL
    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.

    That is great an I bet it is well loved . even if the squars took more than 10 mins. You have to relearn the ten min. square every time you make one, if your like me. That is excelent. Joyce j

    It's great! I'm working on one of these right now, in blues and yellows. I think I'm going to QAYG, which will allow for much easier finishing, I think.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    It's a great quilt. Love the way you quilted. I have a 10 min block quilt next in my summer pile of quilting so I'll be sneaking a peak at this again before I start it. The colors are great together and it is masculine, perfect for a boy that age.

    I have been experimenting with this pattern also. I've found that you can make the "bridge" piece larger than the 4 patch squares and have the "show piece" take up most of the room. I LOVE the way you outline quilted around the pieces. Definitely made them stand out. I will have to try that when I make it up again. Thanks for sharing your idea!!
