Quick quilts are fast and easy. The tops can be assembled in a weekend. These quilts are generally smaller and require less supplies than the Beginner Quilts listed below. (Quick Quilts are perfect for your first quilt project!)
These quilts were designed with the beginner quilter in mind. Most are made with simple shapes (rectangles and triangles) and feature straight line sewing.
