5 Minute Block

I whipped this quilt up yesterday as I finally got my sewing mojo back!  This is made from the Lily and Will collection that Linda sent me a few months back.  I decided to use the 5 Minute Block pattern and it went together very quickly.  Here are what the blocks look like and they are made using the One Seam Flying Geese Method.  The YouTube video for the 5 Minute block can be seen here.

I then stitched down the open sides just like I did with my Mexican Star quilt to create a curve.

There are a lot of layout options but I chose to arrange them in this Pinwheel pattern.

I got a call this morning that my Bliss upgrade has arrived in town and they can deliver it to my door on Wednesday!! I think I'll be doing a lot of piecing to keep me busy until it gets here. 

You can see my post on the finished quilted quilt here.


  1. I LOVE that quilt!!!! The fabrics were perfect for that design!!! Kathy, it is sooooo pretty!!!! It's like a chocolate banana cream pie!!! LOL!!! How exciting that you'll be Blissful in just a few days!!!

  2. Whoa - that is really cool. I'm going to have to go check out that block pattern. :)

  3. You are soooo quick! So happy you got your sewing mojo back! Okay, now that Linda said it looks like chocolate banana cream pie, that's all I can think of! YUM! Okay, Ms. Kathy, when you get that Bliss put together, I'm dying to see what magic you'll do to this quilt top!

  4. I love this quilt, and the fabric is perfect for the pattern. Congrats on your new Bliss upgrade, I am sure that Wednesday can't come soon enough! My Bliss arrived today, so I am hoping to install it tomorrow,as long as the hubby comes home on time! Good luck on Wednesday.

  5. I look forward to seeing how you quilt it once you have your bliss installed.
