    Quick quilt

    Recently, we learned our dear friend is very sick and she in the hospital. Her father passed away last Fall and there is no other family. It been a Rough year for her after being diagnosed with cancer and losing her father. Tonight, we have decided to drive down to FLA to surprise her and give her our support. DH ask me if I had any new quilt around which I do but unfortunately since we will be moving, I packed alot of them thinking I would not need it. So I was thinking of making her a quilt but it has to be something simple and quick to make. Quilt As You Go? Any suggestion! We probably leave in a week once I booked time off from work and make all arrangements. Thanks!

    Turning Twenty is the 1st to come to mind.....you can easily put it together in a few hours (Lap size).

    What a Blessing you are to your dear friend
    Happiness is a form of travel...not a destination.

    You can do the jelly roll race quilt in a couple of hours and then have the rest of the week to get it quilted and bound.

    Warm wishes is easy and fast.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    Is there any way to get to the ones you packed? That might be the easiest and least stressful option.

    I did a queen size bricks quilt in less than a week. I cut bricks 6.5" x 18.5". I sorted the bricks by color and light/dark, and alternated blue/green, yellow/white/lt blue or green, brown/black, beige. I started the second row by moving 1/3 of a brick over. I quilted by stick in the ditch.

    The other suggestions are good, too.

    I just saw a very pretty cheater quilt here on the board that was quilted and bound and looked gorgeous. Also brought in $400 in a raffle so you know others thought it was pretty as well. Whatever you choose to do she will be covered in your love and that's what matters.

    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!
