    What's your favorite fast quilt pattern?

    I'm finding myself burried in ~1/8 -1/2 yd pieces. I'm like a magpie seeing something shiny at my sewing my group. I gravitate towards the smaller pieces thinking I can do something then I have a whole bunch and I lose my creative-ness to plan or sew because I just have so much. I have a system for small scraps I posted photos the other day. My scrappy quilts

    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.

    Right now I like the Tossed Nine Patch by Eleanor Burns. Fast and interesting.

    It looks like a center panel with scrappy borders.

    That pattern would be soooo easy to do without the pattern. You just use a piece of focus fabric (or a panel if you got one) and then do a scrappy piano key boarder around the edges!

    The 10-minute block can we be made with any size squares. I use them a lot for the back of my quilts and have done baby quilts with that pattern.

    Lucky Stars by Atkinson Designs works up quickly and looks more complicated than it is. Although it calls for FQs, you could easily use fat eighths instead for a scrappier look. Here's a link to some I made.
