    Question What is your favorite quick & easy quilt pattern???

    I need to make a few quilts & am tired of the quick ones I make, so I thought I would see what other people like to do in a hurry. Oh they are twin - full size quilts. Thanks & pictures would be nice too.

    I love the Boxed Squares pattern the best. I have done it several times and it is always fun. The one I finished recently with the dolphins and waves stitched on it is that same pattern and it was loads of fun to do.

    For those who are interested in making a chevron quilt the way irishrose describes, see the "rail fence" method:

    Very nice, my niece loves "Chevron", but I have never made one. Now you have me thinking.

    Surprisingly I just did the merry go round by MSQC and it went together very quickly. I'm going to quilt it tomorrow and only started on Monday an had 3 days off from working on it. It also looks difficult. Msqc does a lot of quick projects mainly using pre cuts put for mine I cut lengths of fabric. The photo colours are not true it is purple.

    Any of the Missouri star quilt company quilts go together fast. However, of my all time favorites for fast is warm wishes.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    The only quilt design I do use repeatedly - precisely because it is quick and easy - is made up of offset rectangles. So you can make the quilt any length or width you wish. You can mix fabrics or use one colorway. And every quilt looks different. Plus it's a great way to practice quilting designs.

    Simple patchwork does it for me. I adore the simplicity of it. All my table toppers are just plain patches nothing fancy.

    Angie, I love your rectangle quilts! Especially your fabric choices. Is the bottom one from batiks? Shadowplay?

    Hugs,

    Charlotte, those aren't batiks. I just used what I had on hand at the time. If I recall correctly, it was a mix of Michael Miller and Connecting Threads fabrics. Maybe something else mixed in. There is a close-up pic of the fabrics (http://blog.ajpadilla.com/2010/09/04...-requirements/), but this particular quilt was made in 2010, so I don't know if any of those fabrics are available anymore.
    If anyone is interested in this particular quilt, it was the basis of a quilt-along back in 2010. The posts are still up, with pdf files for yardage requirements and different quilt sizes:

    Turning Twenty for me--fast, easy, and shows off large patterns on fabrics (I have a weakness for those fabrics!).
    Courtesy is not optional.

    I am in the process of making a quilt like this one. The website is down and doesn't give directions on how to do it. I am using 5" squares and 2 1/2" strips. Goes together really quickly!

    I do a square in a square for charity quite often. Easy to piece. Fun to sometimes do the blocks off center. Here are the blocks I am currently working on for two charity quilt tops for foster kids.

    Thanks so much, Angie. I am not always good with colors, so I pay a lot of attention to quilts that I like and try to figure out why the colors work together. Using your link, I could see them a lot better.

    hugs,
    Charlotte

    AJPadilla, what size rectangles do you use? I think this would be spectacular in hand-dyes and I have a ton I need to use up.

    I use the Cozy Quilts Strip Six book and ruler. Here is a picture (from the book) I didn't take one of mine that I recently did. There are only6 blocks in the book all very easy and they show a lot of ways to put 2 blocks together into quilt
