10 Minute Quilt Blocks

I'm normally a skeptic.  If I see a title that says 10 minute quilt blocks, I'm thinking, yeah right, who can make a block in 10 minutes?  But that's exactly what I did this morning.  I sewed 9 blocks using the pattern from the book, '10 Minute Quilt Blocks', in less than 2 hours.  The first couple blocks were slow because the directions and pictures were a little confusing to follow.  Mostly it was something I'd never done the way the blocks were put together.  The center squares that are in gold are folded so it gives it a 3-dimensional look.  I'm going to put a border on the quilt and use it on the twin bed in our spare bedroom.  It felt really good to put a quilt top together in such a short time!

I too have been looking at this 10 min block on you-tube for a few weeks now thinking about trying it out she also has a 5 min block. Glad to see you had no trouble making them.Did you use the ten inch block on yours.

Yes I did use the 10 inch block (I used layered cake - or is it cake layer?)

Just found your blog. It is kind of spooky how much alike we are. I'm a long arm quilter for 6 years, RN for 25 and Christian school teacher for 10. We have 4 grown kids and 3 grandkids. Love PBS mini series!
My husband just retired from Home Depot and got his own Gammill. He is learning quickly and is now part of my business. I put on quilting retreats 4 times a year, too. Check out my blog, if you have a minute.
Thanks, and have a happy day! Susan

Have read the book and watched the videos but can't quite get how to press the seams before stitching that third seam. How do you do it.
