The 10 Minute Quilt Block

Have you seen the 10 Minute Quilt Block?  (Find the tutorial at this link.)  I had never heard of it until Thursday evening when I went to my quilt group and a friend demonstrated how it is made.  So simple!  Then another member of my group shared that she had just finished a quilt top made out of these blocks.  When I saw her quilt, I was hooked!  Perfect for the scrappy quilter!

Here is my first try at the block:

Inspired by my friend's quilt which is completely made out of dot fabrics and is so adorable!  I'm going to have fun with the dots in my stash, and maybe even collecting a few more wherever I can find them.  

Due to work and family obligations the last couple of weeks, I haven't done a lot of sewing.  I did put my hourglass mini together and started quilting it.  Love how it is turning out.  Reminds me of tulips coming up in the spring!

And, speaking of spring, I think it has arrived in Colorado!  Hooray!

Linking up at Oh Scrap! today and looking forward to more scrappy inspiration!


  1. The 10-minute block is fun! I like the fabrics in yours.

  2. I have never done the 10 minute block but have seen it before, I love your dots, it's gonna be sooo cute!

  3. I have always wondered how those blocks were constructed. Thanks for sharing the link. Your hourglass mini is pretty darn cute - Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  4. The lime and pink hourglass blocks are just hopping around chanting Spring! Love them. Love the flowers pic. Will check out the tutorial, as no, I'd not heard of the block.

  5. I'm looking at the ten minute block (adorable in polka dots Diann!) and can't figure out how it is pieced, so I had best go visit your link.
    Love your little hourglass mini! Those colors are so fresh!
