    Remember "Christian's 10 Minute Block Quilt"?

    With permission from AZ Jane, I copied her gorgeous quilt, with a few changes to make it my own King-size quilt. This is going to be one big quilt! 102 X 120. I am thinking about doing both hand quilting and tying on this big boy!

    Well, you get the "OFFICIAL JANE STAMP OF APPROVAL". LOL, GORGEOUS!!!! In case you were wondering, I hand quilted a square in the 4 block corner than echo around the little diamond shape in the middle of the blocks. Don't you just love it!!!!! Good job!

    Dear Jane, Oh I was HOPING you would see this post and approve of my attempt at honoring you with my version of your original quilt!!!!!!! I have been looking at your close-ups to see what you did with yours in terms of hand quilting. I like the way yours looks. I might follow your idea and also tie it where the four corners meet.

    It is so big, it will take a long time to quilt... the funny thing is, we don't even have a King bed yet... but hey, if I finish the quilt, I HAVE to get a new bed to fit it, right? Hahaha. Thank you for your inspiration!

    This is really pretty. I love your color choices. Question- did the blocks take you 10 minutes?

    Actually, I got quite proficient after having made so many 10-Minute blocks, that I could whip them out in way less than ten minute's time! Now, I was very organized and did all my cutting first, then all the sewing, then pressing, then changing thread for the finishing top-stitching. So I did them rather "assembly-line" fashion. I totally copied the color scheme from AZ Jane. Check hers out under "Christian's 10 Minute Block (not)"
