    I recently visited a quilt shop that had on display a quilt made of well coordinated 10 inch squares of rather simple patterns and light to med. colors. It had a 6 inch border all around. The thing that made it special was the quilting pattern was a simple one called Dancing Daisies and the thread used was a darker color and the pattern really stood out. I made a full size in 2 days. On another visit to the same shop the owner told me that she has sold over 30 pre-cut kits of this quilt and it gets more attention than any other one in the shop.

    An Irish chain is a traditional favorite. Perhaps reverse it with light "chains" on a darker background?- and you can get it done in time!

    I really love this D9P I made for my niece. With softer fabric choices it would made a very nice wedding quilt I think.

    How about HST in this design? It is very quick and easy and would look wonderful in any fabric combination.

    each block is 8.5 HST and the sashing is 3.5.

    hi...this is one I made from a Moda layer cake and some extra co-ordinating fabric (OASIS)....it was really quick, the picture shows it not finished...I still had to bind but both my daughters ( aged 25 and 21) love it and want me to make them one.
    I just cut the 10" suares into 2 1/2" strips and sewed them up again into blocks and bordered....couldn't be simpler or quicker but turned out very pretty...especially when completed....cushions are completed now too !!

    Here's an idea that could also buy you a little time. If they're having a reception after the ceremony, how about you make a quilt up out of a simple signature blocks (quilterscache.com would be a huge help) and then have all the guests sign them or write some well wishes for the happy couple. Then you can take it home with you afterwards, heat set the writing, and then quilt it? It would be a lasting memory of their special day.

    Self-serving motive to give you some time...I think it would be great of you to respond to post http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-142025-1.htm I am dying to know the story behind your QB ID!! LOL!!

    hahaha QB id was actually my horses name. I'm already doing all the flowers for the wedding so it's going to be really busy day so I don't want to add more to that.

    Well, Duh! to me. This arrangement is the same as Wild's. You used prints for the squares that yield the rectangles and she used solids.

    Some days I don't perk on all cylinders.

    What a great way to make triangle squares. Just tried it and like it a lot better than using paper patterns. Thanks for the hint.

    I've got a Bento Box in the works. It goes together very quickly, if you can find the free pattern online. One of my online quilt groups has a free pattern in the files section. It's all done with 2-1/2" strips. Very easy.

    well I started something on Saturday evening after getting all the fabrics together and getting everything ready and then I went to sub cut the blocks last night and realized that I did all the blocks backwards so I have to pick it all apart! Oh well, I had a UFO in the closet that just needs a border and it was the right colours so I am going to finish that one and give that to the couple. I'll still do the other one and it'll be a christmas present for her someday maybe but I can't believe I did that!

    At least I caught it before I started cutting more. Thanks for the pattern ideas, I have a pattern similar to this one so that is what I had planned on using in all blues with the white, until last night. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-144615-1.htm

    Really like that version. Much more interesting & versatile than the original D9P.
    Thanks for sharing.

    That's lovely. I'm not a real big fan of D9P but that is the prettiest one I've seen. Thanks for sharing.

    One I made, especially nice if you have focus fabrics, but really, really, easy & fast is a Potato Chip Quilt!! It's called that cause you can't make just one!! For a picture of my first top, look in SEARCH for "Potato Chip Quilt" with winter012 on it. It's a red & blue one, I have since made 2 more of different sizes. If you want a pattern, I can supply you with one. Good Luck!!!!!
