    You really have a gift for seeing things in a different way. I love what you did with the pants.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    That's a standing ovation to our quilting ancestors -- you turned a sows ear into a silk purse, and used very little time doing it. Can't you just imagine what a quilter 200 years ago would say if shown how to do the 10 minute block or 5 minute block? Not to mention all the time saving gadgets we all enjoy. Love the floral quilt. I've got a bunch of floral fabrics from the 80's that I had no idea what to do with -- your quilt gave me some great ideas. Thank you!

    A lot of people have said that the 10 minute block takes longer than 10 minutes, does the 5 minute block take 5 minutes? Or more?
    I didn't time it, but I would venture to say it does only take 5 minutes.

    WOW! I think you definitely had a vision when you bought those ugly pants! Nice job! I'm in the process of quilting a 10 minute block quilt right now, but think I like the 5 minute block even better!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Thanks Char. I hadn't been aware of the 5 minute block before. However, I just watched Suzanne McNeil's youtube video and can see that it would be quick.

    You have done wonders using the pants fabric. You have made a great quilt. I also like your 10 minute block quilt. It is nice and colorful. Some day I'm gonna try making a 10 minute block. Thanks for sharing.

    What a great way to say it! That should be the name of this quilt... because it sure is a beauty now! And I love the other one, too... so bright & cheerful! Kudos on both!

    That is quite remarkable.
    Those pants are so ugly, but the quilt is going to be beautiful- the other fabrics suddenly make it look like luscious caramel!

    Am I the only one who sees monster eyes peeking at me in the 5-minute blocks?

    I sure like the quilt better than the pants. LOL. You did a great job on that project and the floral quilt is lovely also. Thanks for sharing.
