    How big a quilt do you end up with using a jelly roll and the missouri star quilt tutorial?

    or use the tube pinwheel method on Missouri Star Quilt Company - I've made several baby quilts doing this and it takes no time at all!

    Actually I bought a couple of flannel receiving blankets that coordinated, cut them into 5" sq. and make a disappearing
    nine patch, it turned out so cut. Very soft, used pearl cotton
    and did a large quilt stitch about 1/4" in a grid format. It is
    adorable.

    The 10 minute block, you can see it on youtube. It literally only take 10 minutes or less. If you have a layer cake quilt fabric (40 10 inch sqaures) It's even faster. It takes only 5 10 inch squares to make one. If you made 4 10 minute blocks it would give you a 40 x 40 baby quilt and you can complete the top in under an hour. Amazing.

    Moda fabric's website, www.unitednotions.com also has free charm pack patterns. They are very easy and go together quickly. I use them a lot. You can also use squares if you don't have a charm pack.

    Check Connectingthreads.com under Free Patterns. There is one called Quilt as You Patch Coins Quilt. I think that it could be done in simple peicing. Looks like it would go fast. Good Luck

    I have a favorite pattern for a quick quilt. Buy 1 3/4 yard of a print pick 2 complimentry fabric [ 1 yard each ] and 5/8 fabric for binding. This quilt turns out to be 50x65, so you can make it smaller. Cut the print fabric 8.5 in and the other 2 colors 4.5 in sew these 2 fabrics in strips and make 4 patches with them. then alternate the blocks with 8.5 and the four patches [5 across and 7 down] with no borders. I quilt and X throught the four patches bind and you are done. I hops you can understand my directions other wise email me at suepieren@yahoo.com

    I am not sure if these are of any help. The big star quilt whipped up easy as did the square in a square quilt.

    Thanks Anita! Your my favorite! i learned so much from your rotary cutting techniques!

    one of my first books was:
    Rotary Cutting Revolution: New One-Step Cutting, 8 Quilt Blocks

    The penguins were from JoAnns. i looked for them this past weekend, no luck at one store, but we have another one in our area. :thumbup:
