Easily my favorite 'fast' quilt!

Yup, definately! I've made this a few times now and it's sooo simple! Strips are cut either the same width or varying widths out of fat quarters and then sewn into sets of 3 or 4. Those strip sets are then cut into varying widths of 5, 6 and 7 inches. It's a different littie patchwork of sorts, but it works up so fast and easy!

The quilt on the top is a baby quilt- for moi! Well, for the baby- if it ends up being a girl! I made one out of this collection (Moda Poetry) last summer for a friend's baby girl and absolutely loved how it turned out, so I'm using up some of my scraps and other pieces for another.

The quilt below is approximately 3x4 feet and was made for my son. (Pic was before quilting and binding). He wanted it, and I happily obliged :D

More Mei Tai updates later- I recieved my Minky and print for the main part, but am waiting until my local Hancock's gets the color of twill I need in stock to get it made up. I am excited though!
