    Missouri Star Quilts has just come out with a tute on YouTube of a Chevron quilt- fast and pretty- Jenny used layer cakes 10" squares and it seemed to go fast on her tute. Most of her tutes are quick and simple I think. She was using two different colored fabs. One was white. This would be quick and simple I think as well as look very pretty. You might want to check it out on Miss Star Quilt site and go to tutes, I just saw this tute this week. Wishing a speddy recovery to the individual who was burned.

What is a good simple pattern for a quilt that still looks beautiful?? Any suggestions would be AMAZING, since I am going to buy fabric tomorrow.
    Buy a jelly roll and make the 1600 quilt. Video on Missouri Quilt Company.

    I did a 10 minute block twin size in 1 day by using 12 inch blocks and 3 inch boarder. 4 blocks wide 6 rows with 2 rows of boarder top, bottom, and each side. I use Accuquilt Go to cut the strips. It took me 1 day.

    I received this site in my inbox for a YouTube tutorial and it looks like it would fit your needs. Good Luck!

    My favorite QUICK pattern is JUST CAN'T CUT IT, quick and easy to cut and goes together like a dream, I made a queen size in a weekend....that didn't include quilting as I send my quilts to a long armer.

    I had to put together a quilt for an auction. I chose A Walk In the Park by Two Sisters At Squirrel Hollow. I was surprised at how fast it went together. I used bright colors and everyone that has seen it loves it.

    I would recommend they raffle the quilt. Frequently, silent auction bids don't go up very high. However, you can 100 tickets at $5 each and raise $500 (think more). People will pay $5 a ticket, but they don't want to pay $500 for a quilt even if it is hand made and custom.

    Actually they are going to do a live auction for that very reason! They have all the local businesses donating items, plus just local people as well. Thanks for all the great tips everyone! I bought fabric for a turning twenty yesterday, and I will be cutting and stitching all day today! I'll let you know how it and the fundraiser turns out!

    What about a disappearing 9 patch, they look much more complicated and are simple and quick to do.

    Another quick quilt-------------not flashy but quick--------------would be a rag quilt. Quilted as you go----------and if you use full width strips (sideways) about 6" wide, they are even faster.

    I sometimes do a crazy patch. They can be very fast and very beautiful and you can use all kinds of different colors.

    This is the pattern I was going to suggest. It is so effective for its simplicity and you only need four fabrics.

    I'm reading this the evening of Feb 2 so by now your decisions have been made. Just writing to wish the best to the injured man and hope the silent auction is a big success.

    Well, it's Saturday night and I think I FINALLY have this thing laid out. Tomorrow I will put the top together, prep it for quilting, and possibly start the quilting. I do plan on adding a border (white or a combo of fabric scraps used?) but I made it a little smaller since I have so little time to finish this! Thanks for all your wonderful tips and comments, let me know what you think of the work in progress! Name:  fundraiser quilt1.jpg

    Love the different values of fabric. It will make a special quilt.
