    My 10 minute and 5 minute block Quilt from a class I taught

    This has 100-10 minute blocks in the center and 70-5 minute blocks around the edges(to give a scalloped effect) all with faux cathedral windows...I taught this as a mini class at our quild in January.Name:  10and 5 minute block quilt.jpg

    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    Very pretty quilt! I love that pattern. Do you cut out the thickness behind the center, or leave it?

    Is that ever a nice quilt! Sometimes plain and simple can be so beautiful.

    What a super looking quilt! I imagine different fabric choice would really transform it too - it looks a very versatile pattern.

    I wish I lived in Kentucky - I would have loved to take your class.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    There is a u tube on both the 5 and 10 minute blocks. The only difference I made was putting the additional blocks in between which mean when I sewed I couldn't see all the way down so I could insert the additional 10 minute blocks, like a Y seam.

    Because of the way the 10 minute block is sewn into the seams, I don't take out the bulk. My wife did an all over meandering when she quilted it on the long arm and did not go over the faux cathedral windows , so the bulk or possibility of breaking a needle was no problem.

    Your quilt is wonderful & it looks like you did a super job making it. I bet your class members were thrilled to have you teach this quilt class. Nice work!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    ​Great quilt! The brown blocks remind me of footballs, I am thinking this would be great for a football fan in brown and green?

    This is very cool. Red and black, how rich. Reminds me of a coat of arms.

    Love the color choice. It completely transforms the block into something really elegant. I had to study the photo for a little bit to see the block.
