    Your favorite "quick' pattern

    Our guild was just blessed with donated material by the husband one of our long time members that passed away recently and we are needing some quick, simple, but nice patterns to make lap size quilts from. Can you please share with me what some of YOUR favorite, quick & easy patterns are?
    Thanks,
    Can't wait to see what everyone says.
    Have a good weekend.

    I am sorry about the loss of your friend. I like the "take five quilt". You need 5 coordinating fabrics and off you go for a quick nice quilt.

    There is a free pattern on Fabric Buffet's web site called Kathy's Disappearing Nine Patch. The big difference in this pattern is, it is strip pieced and then cut, it is not squares. Goes together really quick.

    I like Yellow Brick Road. It also lends itself to larger size scraps. Fast easy... and you can't really goof it up!

    Log cabin or rail fence are old standbys that work up fast.

    Lucky Stars by Atkinson Designs...the cutting takes awhile, but once that is done, the sewing is quick....I have loved every quilt I have made with this pattern!

    I love Warm Wishes... I think it is a Project Linus pattern. Works up well with just a few colors and goes very, very fast!

    The 10-minute block is usually my go-to pattern. You can make it out of any size squares and they go together really fast. In the black and white quilt, I used three different sizes of the 10-minute block.

    Go to the Missouri Star Quilt Company site and view their videos. They have a number of quick and easy patterns that would work well for you.

    "Take Five" is easy and with only five fabrics, it's done, oh, so quickly!

    So sorry for your loss. It's so very hard to lose a friend, but the quilts you make will be like having part of her live on. My favorite pattern is the simple square of a feature focus fabric alternating with a 9-patch, and you can even make that square be a snowball block. I also like the 8-pointed star block, with Eleanor Burns quick and easy flying geese technique it works up quickly and you can easily change the square center with 4-patch, 9-patch, pin wheel, etc. for variation. Hope this helps.
