    I was checking off the names of charity quilts and quilts for Christmas gifts and I thought that I was done. Some how I missed 4 people on the list. Now I need to come up with some ideas for 4 fast quilts to make in time for Christmas. Any quick quilt ideas?

    Alternate a solid block with a pieced one, such as 4 patch, 9 patch. Disappearing 9 patch, some of the FQ quilt patterns are pretty quick to work up, Lucky Stars (my avatar), Yellow Brick Road. Also, even just blocks in various prints with plain sashing is quick and pretty.

    I'd do one of the Jelly Roll race patterns with a couple of wide borders, or with 2 jelly rolls.

    If I am in a rush, there is NOTHING as easy as a BQ2 pattern....... Takes only about 2 hours from cut to finish. EXCEPT when doing directional prints !!! I have TWO more quilts to go and then I will be DONE for the year !!! :lol:

    I have just finished one and it took me 7 hours from start to finish for all the cutting and piecing and it is a very good size. I will post it in the photo section under the title of Big Blue Ice. Great pattern and good instructions

    I like the sound of the BQ2 pattern. ManiacQuilter 2 I like your fabrics. I have the pattern and plan on making a few also. Good Luck in getting 4 quilts done in time for Christmas!!

    These quick patterns sound good. It would be nice if the source would be written so we could look it up. I have made 8 quilts for xmas too. I made 2 stack & slash with fat quarters. As many blocks depending on how lg.you want. I made 2 from the "Turn Twenty" book. These are a couple of quick ones. I would send pic, but I need someone to help me with that process. I can sew but I'm not to computer "savvy". LOL Nancy
