    I got a total of 9 blocks made for a total of 3 hours. LOL!!!

    I think I will make it a baby quilt, sew it together and add borders.
    I still have to square the blocks up so please don't pay any mind to the uneven edges.

    I think I will save the rest of the squares for a future 9 patch quilt.

    Be honest and tell me what you all think. :D :D

    The blue is actually purple.

    It's purple on my monitor and it's also adorable. I like your layout. You do such a good job of choosing colors.

    great job I am working on a memory quilt using this method....I found if I pin a bunch of them together it was easier to do an assembly line formation which seemed to be faster also

    Thank you very much. I am really like how it came out, I am just not sure I care for the 10 minute block.

    Very cute fabric for a baby quilt. I made a couple of quilts like this for my daughter when she was a baby. She loves them. However, she has ripped several of the 3D bowties. They got caught on furniture and stuff when she was dragging them around.
    I had to wash them a lot. "Biological baby messes" tended to get caught in the pockets under the bowties.

    thanks for timing yourself. I count that as a warning for me that it will take longer than that!!

    Very pretty blocks. And don't ever think a block named in minutes is how long it will take most of us to make it. First off a quilter on Utube uses precut squares, that saves alot of time. Second she has the best equipment, and she makes the blocks alot before she times herself. I too am just making a lapsize quilt of big 10 minute blocks. I had to iron, cut, pin, tear out occasional seams,iron again, etc till I got each so named 10-minute block completed. I estimate about 20 minutes per block after I got good at it. LOL So you did great!!!!!!!!!!!!
