    How about Missouri Star Quilt Co's 5 minute quilt block?

    I forgot to add that when I pick a quick and easy pattern but want it stunning,
    I try to go for the nicest fabrics because that's what will make a break the quilt.
    Just my humble opinion.

    Quick and easy quilts

    I just finished a quilt this week end. This can be done with 2 or 3 or 4 different fabrics. Cut 2.5 x wof (width of fabric) sew 3 of the strips together. Once they are together cut them into squares. Now cut your main color into the same size square as your strips are. Now sew them in strips alternating the squares. I did 6 across and 8 down then added borders.
    Both were done fast and look great.

    Quick quilts, I will be watching this post. Sorry I always pick the complicated and if it's not complicated I add something and then it takes more time. I do enjoy what I do and pleased with the finished product but my family has to wait and wait
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    It's all in the selection of fabrics. Some of the quick and easy look like they were made for the dog's bed and some look stunning and they are the same pattern. Select your fabrics carefully.

    I agree on largeer blocks, less cutting & less sewing. do something fun that you like. Do not attempt a new technique thast will stress you out. you do not need any additional stress now.

    Warm Wishes is an easy quilt that can be dressed up or down depending on the fabric chosen.
