    This is made from a pattern posted here by Fromthenestdesigns. You can find the directions by searching "super fast jelly roll quilt"; it will be under Tutorials. I went from unwrapping the plastic wrap on the jelly roll (I used Mint Chip by Tonga) to binding done in a little under 6 hours. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift. I used Thinsulate batting and fleece backing so I decided to test it out to see if it would be warm enough. Once I woke up from the nap it caused, I got out another jelly roll and made a different one to give away! It was super easy to make, and lots of fun. This pattern is definitely on my list of things to do when I need something in a hurry!

    Yes. This was just one package. The border is made from a 2 1/2 yd piece from my stash. So, not only is this quick, it is economical, too.

    Beautiful quilt. I love this pattern, it's so fast. It's become my "need a quilt in a hurry" favorite.
