    Help! Please - I need a quilt top, quick

    I need a quilt top, quick. I've been asked to be in an online video for my LQS. I'll be working on the rental longarm quilting machine. I only do one quilt at a time, so I don't have any tops laying around. I have a collection of 26 hawaiian print fat quarters. I would love suggestions on how to get a top ready quickly. I appreciate any suggestions.

    Turning Twenty. It is a fast pattern based on scrappy fat quarters.

    do a variation of the 9 block, cut blocks 4 1/2 inches. 3 rows of 3, make all the center blocks white, after 9 block is made cut evenly in quarters, mix them up and turn so that 2 little white squares are point to point, you'll see the pattern when you lay the rows together the white blocks are set in each row of 2 just finished a top that way and am ready to get it quilted I also put a 2 and 4 inch border on the quilt

    Yes! In the book they say you can do it in a day. I'm not that fast, but it is a speedy quilt. And would look great done in Hawaiian prints. Let us know! Y'know... like pictures & all...

    Just what you need to do one of Eleanore Burns' Quick Quarter quilts. They work up really fast. I'm hooked on this pattern and I usually don't like doing the same pattern more than once.

    The Turning Twenty CAN be made in LESS THAN A DAY!!!!!! This is my "go to pattern" when I need a quilt in a hurry.
