This took me one day to make, yeah! I was actually suckered into buying a pattern for this. Duh, it's strips of fabric sewn together. Each stripe is 5 in. x 41 in. There is no need to quilt. The back of this is minky and the front is flannel and corduroy. This is definitely a great beginner quilt. I'm terrible at measuring correctly and this pattern is very forgiving. If you finish sewing and find that one side's edges are not even you can just trim them up or I used my rotary cutter to even them up, then sew around the entire quilt.
