My latest quilt project, took 4 days! A Jelly Roll Race

I have never made a quilt so quickly!  On Wednesday I went with a friend to choose the material.  It as her choice, as it is a present for her daughter.  On Thursday I cut strips 3" wide and sewed them together, mitred.  Then on Friday I joined them into one big long strip and started using the "Jelly Roll Race" method to put them together.  By Saturday it was done and and I backed, quilted (including lovehearts), and bound.
What a quick way to put a quilt together, and I am really pleased with the results.  You can see the method I used here..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bEJLnaZQOU
