envirocraft - this one wasn't as fast to put together as you think - it took me several days to piece it even though it's *just rectangles* and even after I got the strips sewn together it wasn't working out so I had to do a ton of ripping.  There really isn't any super quick quilting unless you are sewing together big squares together.  Quilting isn't quick no matter how you do the math but I am really smitten with it Cheesy  I guess I finally found my patience after I grew old lol

So true.... my mom and dh will say "you are still not done with that quilt?" OMGosh..................... just the ironing alone can seriously wound a person!!!
