The Basic Blocks are So Quick to Make!

This beautiful quilt was made with 10-Minute Blocks. The basic blocks start with 10″ squares and require just three seams. The blocks finish at 20″.

For her version, Anja created 10″ squares by sewing together 2 1/2″ jelly roll strips. While that meant the blocks took longer than 10 minutes, it’s still a quick and easy process. The trickiest part is getting the strips all pointed the right way.

Suzanne McNeill demonstrates how to make 10-Minute Blocks in the following video. Notice how the centers can be left square or folded Cathedral Window style for a curved center. You’ll love how versatile these blocks are and how quickly a quilt can be made from them.

Experienced quilters are likely to be able to make a quilt similar to Anja’s without further instruction (learn more about her quilt here – translated using Google Translate).

Written instructions for the blocks, this quilt and more can be found in Suzanne’s book, 10-Minute Blocks: 3-Seam Squares For Quicker Quilts: Jelly Rolls, Layer Cakes or Yardage.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
