It’s definitely summertime! Does this mean more . . . or less sewing time for you? If you can carve out a couple of hours from all the hot weather fun activities and travels, why not join the on-going Fat Quarter challenge! Select several FQs from your stash and sew something from them. Share your picture with me (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I’ll post to inspire other blog readers.
Maridee, avid quilter and FQ collector, sent a picture of “Furrows” designed by Stephanie Sheridan and published in McCall’s Quick Quilts June/July 2016 issue. Maridee, who makes many baby quilts for charity, modified the pattern so that it finishes at 40.” Great idea, Maridee, in down-sizing the pattern!
Sana says this is not a fat quarter quilt, per se, but she did use only fabrics from her stash. The pattern is called “Fairy Tale Baby” from Bobbie G Designs. It’s meant to be a smallish wall hanging (35 x 43), but Sana enlarged the pattern on a copy machine. The quilt finishes at 43″ x 54.” Sana, your attention to detail in selecting fabrics for the nursery rhyme characters and in machine appliqueing them is astonishing!
Cindy calls her quilt “Over the Rainbow.” She found the pattern, “Big Windows,” in the Spring 2016 Fons and Porter Easy Quilts. The method of construction is similar to a quilt as you go. She writes, “I had so much fun making it.” Kudos, Cindy, for making such a lovely quilt!
Now it’s your turn. Show us what you’ve been making from Fat Quarters!
