Quilt in a Day: 5 Patterns for Fast and Furious Stitchers

Do you ever feel like you’ve been working on the same work in progress forever? Some quilters take months or even years to piece and complete a quilt, while others seem to quilt at the speed of sound, moving on to a new quilting project every week.

Between the time spent choosing and cutting fabrics to the hours spent piecing, it’s quite impractical to think that you can actually make a quilt in a day. Or is it? We’ve searched far and wide for the freshest time-saving quilt patterns, with tops that you can whip up in 24 hours or less!
