If crocheting is new to you, then maybe knitting an afghan might be quicker. But, the suggestions for granny squares or V stitch are good ones. Also, if you use a larger hook (size J or larger), or use multiple strands and an N, P, or Q hook, it'll work up fast.
Mile A Minute patterns are good too.
