10-Minute Block

I apologize for the bad photo.  We have rain, lots of rain, for probably the rest of the week.  It is dark, even in my solarium.  I actually needed my flash.  This is a 10-minute block which Barb of Bejeweled Quilts showed on her blog a few days ago.   I really liked it and wanted to try it.  I made my blocks with 8-inch pieces because that is what I had in my stash.  There are 4 blocks in this top.   I put one of the 'on point' pieces in the centre of the 4 blocks.  It was very easy, but I had a lot of interruptions today. I plan to make this a bit bigger when I have time.
My second set of kitchen cabinets finally arrived.  We were told they were being delivered today between 8:00am and 1:00pm, but they didn't get here until 3:30pm.  Now my whole house is filled with boxes of cabinets because the guys who delivered them would not take the first set back.  I have no idea what is going to happen now.  And frankly Scarlet, I don't give a damn.  Now I just want my kitchen installed so that things can get back to normal.  Yeah, okay, semi-normal.

I want to make that block; but later I'm thinking. I like it. It will all be worth it --- the kitchen mess. Honest. Says the woman who has plumbers coming today.

I'm laughing outloud in my empty house as I read you post. I know how you feel about the kitchen. I can't see why they wouldn't take the wrong ones back but then no one probably gave them the paperwork telling them to. I hope it all resolves itself soon.

Nice block Hetty. Can't believe it is a 10 minute block.
I hope your kitchen wil be built soon.
Sending you some lovely sunshine from the Netherlands (we could do with some rain here, we hardly had any rain the last 2 months, bushfires are starting)

I don't think contractors know how to tell time or read a calendar. So glad your a step closer to a finished kitchen. Hang in there you'll love it when it's done.
