TEN MINUTE BLOCKS

I needed a quilt fast and my sister at Inchworm Fabrics showed me this 10 minute block a while back. (click on 10 minute block for video)...only three seams!

So today I decided to give it a try..... How fun is this? It took me less than 3 hours to make this quilt top.

My son wanted me to play more with the design, I should have let him do it and I just sew it but I was in a hurry. This design has so many possibilites, my mind was just reeling with different ways but for now, this will do.

I am not putting a border on it, maybe just use purple or yellow to bind it. That is all of the fabric I have left.


It looks alot more fun in person. I think some little gal will love it. I did Cathedral windows with the block in the middle.

I really love this quilt! The colors are so happy. I watched the video and bookmarked it. I think I need to make a red and black version and a rainbow version and....you get the idea. It does look very easy and relaxing. I thought cathedral windows when I saw the video too. Might be nice to use white for that section and add some novelty fabrics in the "windows".
