    Take 5 is an easy one. Others I've made with scraps are String quilts on a muslin foundation, Turning Twenties and Yellow Brick Road.

    The Rail Fence is a good one for fast, ease, colors, variations. The number of rails can make it easier.

    The bigger pieces I feel I should be doing something more-not sure what. I also have a cutting fabric phobia. It's like as long as the fabric is whole there is a lot of potential.

    I've done all the basics-4 patch, 9 patch, d9p, rail fence, scrappies from quiltville and maryquilts, lasagnas , best wishes, log cabins.

    What quilt pattern have you used are fast and still attractive, when you need a quilt quickly? I still want them to be quality even it it's fast.

    Please include links to unusual ones or write out directions if it's your idea and you want to share.

    Oh, I make QFK's and QOV's.

    Strips and Ladders for a guild raffle quilt. Needed something the members of the guild could do quickly and easily. Then I can add the applique and tada!

    The District quilt by Lyn Brown is fast, easy and looks great. I have made 2 recently as baby quilts. If you want to make this really fast, you can use the pre cut layer cakes and charm squares.

    I really like the Hanky Panky pattern, Yellow Brick Road and Turning Twenty. All are very easy to do.

    I really enjoy the yellow brick road patten. I think is is by Attichison company, I am not really sure, but it is quick and simple.

    My contribution would be Wickedly Easy. I would post a link, but I can't get it to load. You could do a Google search and maybe it would work for you. It should be a free pattern.

    Is there a free pattern out there for Take Five or do I have to buy the pattern.

    I like tube quilting. Sew two jelly roll strips together and press (Group A). Sew a second two together and press (Group B). Sew Group A to Group B on both sides, right sides together. Use a 90 degree angle with the point barely touching the second A-B seam and cut the triangle. Repeat the length of the tube, alternating sides of the seam. You should end up with eight triangles that give you 8 squares (fabric on the diagonal) when pressed open. Arrange them into two blocks & sew together. Repeat until you have the size quilt you want. For a lap quilt, I use 10 strips of each of 4 colors and an additional 5 strips of one color for the binding. You should end up with 24 blocks plus binding.
