    Here is more progress of my ten minute block. I added another row of the green (suggested by Klgreene, great idea BTW!) and a potential border.

    What do you all think of the border?

    None of is sewn together yet. The blocks are just laying side by side.

    Thank you for looking!

    Here is the first post: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-124903-1.htm
    Part 2: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-125181-1.htm

    Same picture just a differnet view.

    I think the border idea is great, but can you arrange it so that no border square is right next to a sq of the same color? If not, I would do a thin inner border of something else entirely, then do the squares for the border.

    In any case, very colorful and cheerful -- it will be a great baby quilt.

    I like what she said! Maybe the purple butterfly for a border? thin border? I love the varied squares on the outside.

    Hey - she read my mind! I was thinking a thin plain border, then the squares would make the center pop. Love the colors ~ you must be close to 10 min. time frame after making all these. lol

    I like the idea of a thinner inner border. I will work on it tomorrow if I get a chance.

    Now if you saw me at Walmart you would think I forgot to look on a mirror when I got dressed. :-)

    Very nice! I like your bright fabrics, and liked the border even with two squares of the same fabrics occasionally side by side.

    I like the way the colors are popping on this. I am anxious to see the final result.

    I can't do my 3D bowtie blocks the "easy way", I can never
    get the center seam to come out flat.
    I do mine a totally different way. I'm working on a red,white and blue version, it'll be a quilt of valor.

    Looks great...I really like the idea of a thin inner border and maybe a binding of the same colour. Your quilts are always lovely, so whatever you choose will be great.
