    Is there a tuitorial for 10 Minute block somewhere?

    I found this on Pinterest but the link is in another language! It looks easy enough but how is the diamond placed? I have limited access internet so I am unable to watch a video on You tube!! Could someone explain or direct me to a tute?

    It looks like strips sewn together to form a block. Then one corner of the block is snowballed. I.e. A square is sewn diagonally across the corner of the block. When 4 blocks are sewn together the 4 snowballs should meet together to form a square. Which looks like a diamond in the picture. There are much greater minds on this forum that can and will do a better job than me. So be patient, wait, it'll come along soon enough. It is a pretty quilt.

      It appears to be a rail fence, with the corner diamonds using the "3-D bowtie" technique, as it looks like the outside edges of the diamonds are not sewn down.

      Give me a moment and I'll provide a picture of what I'm talking about & a link.

        Ok, here we go (let's see if this works):

        Imagine the outside corners of this block are the rails, and the inside diamond is the 3D part of a bowtie. Notice how the edges of the diamond are not sewn down, but are tucked under and sewn into the seam of the four outside squares:

        here's a link how to create this 3D look (not the rail part though)

          It looks a bit like Jenny's pinwheels on point pattern

            you just need to make the rail fence first

              There are multiple videos of this pattern on YouTube.

                  The original video is by Suzanne McNeil for original designs. If you go to YouTube and put 10 minute block in the search ... hers should be the first one that comes up. It's the one I used to make 4 of those quilts. Very simple, easy to follow.
