What a inspirational post. My favorite fat quarter project is the disappearing nine patch. I love how it shows off every fat quarter in the bundle. Thank you for a beautiful giveaway. janie(dot)mccombs(at)yahoo(dot)com

Sharlene said...

Fantastic giveaway! I've made a couple of Crazy 8's quilts - a very friendly FQ pattern which is also easily enlarged with some more FQ's.

KaHolly said...

Love it! It showcases the fabrics beautifully! XO

The Calico Cat said...

99.9% of all of the quilt that I make could be made with fat quarters. I like scrappy. As such, I'd rather have 50 reds instead of 1, as a consequence, you can get that 1 piece from a fat quarter.

More specifically, 1 1.5x1.5 square for the center of a log cabin block.

Vicki H said...

I like using fat quarters for the disappearing 4 patch. I love your firecracker quilt.

MaryAnn Guappone said...

Beautiful fabric. Your quilt is gorgeous. I don't have a go to fat quarter pattern. I am trying to work my way through a lot of scraps right now.

Laura said...

They're all fabulous quilts, and each so different! I'd love to win this bundle of fabric. Thanks!

Tracy said...

Not sure that I have a go to pattern but a love fat quarters and use them most of the time! Love your quilt!

MaryAnn said...

Fat quarters allow for a fairness in the quilting world, while not able to buy huge amounts of fabric, a fat quarter gives us status, belonging and privilege in the wonders of quilting and dreams come true. Fat quarters are my favorite for making 20 inch pillows. Hanks for an opportinity to be a part of this drawing.

Rachel said...

My favorite fat quarter quilt is *always* the next one I have in mind. I don't tend to follow patterns too closely, as I prefer to just kind of listen to what the fabrics and colors want to do. I'll open a stack of lovely FQs and fan them out on my cutting table or on the design wall and wait until they speak to me. Then I cut and sew real quick before I change my mind and start thinking it was all a bad idea. . .

Martina said...

I mostly buy fatquarters. They just look so nice on a stack, lol! But I use them just as I Need them for my scrappy quilts, applique and so on. No Special block in mind, but - I love flying geese!
Beautiful quilt! Love it so much!

Karen said...

I enjoy sewing bags, totes, home decor, etc. and scrappy quilts. So every little piece of fabric gets used.

Needled Mom said...

I LOVE this fabric line and have ordered several of them already.

I suppose my favorite projects are the table runners - fun to make and fun to use.

GranChris said...

I don't think I have a favorite pattern for FQ's. I like to try them all. PD9P are always great and so are lattice quilts. Your quilt is wonderful. Jmikebalou (at) aol (dot) com

Mary Van Kleeck said...

Thank you for the great giveaway!!! I love to make "Yellow Brick Road" quilts.

Dear Faye said...

I am making zipper pouches as fast as I can. I have really enjoyed my stash of fat quarters for the pouches.

Joan said...

I use fat quarters for table toppers, small quilts and little pouches. My twin granddaughters love to use my stash of fat quarters, too. Thank you for the great giveaway.

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

Lovely fabric! When I need a fast small quilt, I grab 5 fat quarters and make a Wiggle Time quilt. Fast and Easy. Thanks!

Kim said...

I love using fat quarters to make small zipper pouches. It''s big enough to use them up and makes a great size for small projects.

Myra @ Busy Hands Quilts said...

My favorite fat quarter quilt pattern is Rosewood Lane. It's quick and beautiful.

Miranda Evans said...

I love adding a couple of Fat Quarters in scrappy string quilts- it's an easy way to make a bunch of random scraps look more cohesive!

P.S. your Firecracker quilt is lovely!

Barbara Ensor said...

Turning 20 is my go to fat quarter quilt.

Kimberly Smith said...

Apq has a great free FQ pattern called Neutral appeal; it's on my to-do list. Thanks for the giveaway!

They go together quickly.

Rita Lynn said...

I like to use them in the Raindrops quilt.

Linda said...

LOVE your Quilt!!My favorite fat quarter project is the disappearing nine patch! Thanks for sharing! msstitcher1214@gmail.com

Linda Schiffer said...

What cheerful fabric!! :)

I don't actually have a favorite fat quarter pattern per se - I use a variety of fabric cuts when I make a quilt, including fat quarters - I rarely make a quilt from _only_ fat quarters. I know, rebel me. :)

My favorite go-to pattern in general for scrappy quilts is Nine Patch - so many wonderful ways to set nine patch blocks into interesting quilt tops.

:) Linda (lindaschiffer at me dot come)

tac73 said...

My favorite fat quarter project was a crazy log cabin I made a few years ago. Have a few more in planning stage.

Anita said...

I am using fat quarters of Good Neighbors fabric by Amanda Jean Nyberg for my Modern HST Sampler quilt.

Pat S said...

I love the pattern and the colors are so soothing. This needs to be in my collection.

Kathy said...

Fat Quarter Fizz by FQS

kml7559@gmail.com

Lauren said...

I have not used fat quarters, as I am still a newbie in the quilting world. I have it on my to-do list, however. I made a sampler quilt with half square triangles and thought that was pretty easy. I'm currently working on a diagonal strip quilt for a friend. I'm not using a pattern and it has been a learning experience for sure! I would love to win some of those beautiful fabrics for my next project!

Cheryl Hammond said...

I am in love with Hand Maker & Flowers for Natalie.

Fat quarters are great!Shimmer by Cluck Cluck Sew is a favorite of mine!

Barb Neiwert said...

What a happy quilt! I guess my favorite fat quarter quilt project is one that is finished so I can go on to the next one, lol! (I have too many to have a favorite, can't you tell?) Happy holidays!

Juleen Jaeger said...

I am currently working on a Be My Neighbor quilt that includes 16 houses. I am having great fun using all fat quarters. Never did this before but will definitely do it again.

Stitcher/aka Paula Hedges said...

I am currently doing a mystery quilt led by Bonnie Hunter and am going scrappy so my fat quarter stash has been wonderful for this project. I love the fabrics I see in this bundle!

CarolAnn said...

Love these fabrics! Thanks for the giveaway. My favorite fat quarter projects are Rock Candy and 4 in 9.

Designing Duo said...

My favorite fat quarter project is always the one circling my brain itching to be drafted on paper! Love this collection, too.

Beth said...

I just bought your new comet pattern and need some fabric for that so this would be perfect!

Vicki Tym said...

Two of my favorite people teamed up with great fabric and a great pattern! But, I just bought Comet and I think Handmaker would be great in that, too!
Yay, Julie and Natalie!!!

redzelda said...

Carol Bakaj said...

I love your firecracker quilt. I'd love to make one like it!

Janet Sabol said...

It was fun reading your blog and seeing all the different quilts made with the same fabrics. I don't usually repeat a pattern but I have made a couple of Yellow Brick Road patterns with fat quarters. I tend to look for new patterns using FQs every time I get a stack. Would love to work with these!!

Anne Simonot said...

These fabrics are so vibrant! Like everyone else, I just love FQs and use them whenever & wherever. They're great for cutting 2 or 2.5" strips in great variety - so perfect for log cabins or Scrappy Trips Around the World. annesimonot@sasktel.net

Debbie said...

The fabric is great! I don't have a favorite fate quarter quilt, but can think of a few that will probably do great with fat quarter.





Janet Thrush said...

I am waiting for the True Blue fabric range to arrive in New Zealand so I can make your Lucky Charm pillow. In the meantime I used my new Hex n More ruler and a set of fat quarters from a range of Tilda fabrics to nmake a small mini quilt. I even used your idea for the 5 pointed star to quilt the top and it looks great. Thank you for being such an inspiration and sharing your ideas with us.

Juels said...

Hi Julie! I love the colors in your fabric line! So cherry and bright. Right now I am working on a Miss Rosie fat quarter friendly quilt called Quiet Time. Next I would like to make Emma Jean Jansen's Harlequin Stars - also fat quarters. Have a wonderful Holidau Season!

Judy Forkner said...

Love these fabrics. I like to make scrappy quilts & fat quarters are perfect for providing lots of fabric choices for variety!

Joy said...

My favorite pattern is the boomerang. After I saw your quilt made from Black Tie Affair I just had to do it to. It went together like a dream. My longarm person said it was a breeze to quilt and thanked me for making it so easy for her. So funny...I just followed the pattern. You made it easy.

Lyn Underhill said...

I love working with fat quarter packs! The fabrics all work together beautifully, just gorgeous. I'm actually finishing off of a Flowering Snowball Quilt at the moment, all made from a fat quarter pack plus background fabric. 😀🐶. Lyn

Beth said...

I made a "Sunshine and Shadows" quilt for my partner out of solid fq's many years ago, and liked it so much that I repeated it out of different solid fa's a few years later. So I guess that is my go to fq pattern. Other than that, I don't repeat that often.

Amy said...

Working with fat quarters is fun and fulfilling. I made the star quilt in your "Skip the Borders" book out of a bundle of zombie fabrics. It went together so fast, and the family who received it loves it. (They like to snuggle in it as they watch the Walking Dead.}

Sherry VF said...

I made a Hunters Star Quilt for my daughter's wedding gift out of Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camielle. sjvonfumetti@yahoo.com

suzanprincess said...

I just started my first fat quarter quilt, collaborating with my Project Linus group leader, and we're designing as we go.

Laura said...

Most of the fabric I buy is fat quarters. I make scrappy quilts and would rather have 4 fat quarters of different fabrics than one yard of something. I love variety!

Mary Olson said...

The fat quarters that I buy are used for "scrap" quilts--and I love the zing it adds to a quilt

Nadine Donovan said...

my favorite fat quarter pattern for a quilt is a scrappy half square triangle pattern or string quilt. Love it. I love combining all kinds of interesting an beautiful fabric. anyahta@AOL.com

Dorothy said...

I have yet to make a quilt of only fat quarters but I did recently make a baby quilt for a new nephew that I used fat quarters. It was just 4-inch squares of arrows, teepees, deer and moose antlers, feathers, etc. in the colors of navy, gray and mint. I loved how that one turned out!

Maria McTiver said...

Beautiful fabric, beautiful quilt. I am currently using fat quarters on my Splendid Sampler quilt.

Samantha said...

I don't tend to repeat quilt patterns so I don't have a go to pattern, the one pattern that uses FQs that I have repeated is your night sky quilt. I ended up giving both away, maybe it is time to make a third.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I love to make a Modern Maples quilt with a fatquarter bundle.

ma40422 said...

I don't have a favorite fat quarter pattern. I'm always being attracted to the next new pattern like it was a new shiny object. Do like your firecracker pattern.

Mary Graff said...

I also love the disappearing nine patch or an i spy with the right fabric.

lalaluu said...

Fat quarters make me want to use them in large pieces, so an economy block or just big squares to show off prints is my go-to!

Stephanie Morel said...

I just made a disappearing 9 patch with Peanuts FQ fabric for my friend for Christmas. Shows them off really good. I would love to make your firecracker quilt. Love the pattern.

I like making 9 patch blocks with fat quarters. You can change it up and make disappearing 9 patch blocks with them.

My favorite fat quarter project is Hunter Star quilts. Fat quarters work really well and add that scrappy look. Thanks!

Oooh, I love your quilt, especially in this fabric. I have to admit, I stalked the booth at quilt market last May just drooling over this fabric. My favorite fat quarter quilt is one I call Bloomin' Blossoms. One FQ per blossom. Thanks for the giveaway.

I love your little quilt. So far my favorite is Night Sky. I am thinking about doing the Tumbler Block quilt next. Thank you for so many new quilts it is hard to choose what to do next. Thank you for hosting this giveaway.

love the fabric! My favorite FQ quilt is the disappearing 9 patch- each quilt turns out different!

Well, so far I've only made a few quilts - all from squares. My favorite so far was a quilt using braille patterns to leave a "secret message" - based on Thomas Knauer's Abcderian Quilt.

Thanks for sharing with all of us!

I love to buy fat quarters. I am about to start the night sky, fat quarter quilt.this will be the first fat quarter quilt I have made. Most of time buy yardage. So far I hate to cut fat quarters, they look so pretty in their bundle. Have a feeling once I do one fat quarter quilt I will not have that problem anymore. Have many fat quarter projects I have in line I want to do. Thanks for the giveaway beautiful fabric. Firecracker pattern is beautiful would love to try it

I use my fat quarters to round out my scrappy quilts. I also use them to make bags and zip bags.

I don't have a particular pattern to use with fat quarters, but I love how yours turn out. Thanks for your wonderful patterns!

Michele T said...

I like to make all sorts of quilt patterns and I don't have one that I use all the time. Your patterns are gorgeous and I love all the colour.

I think fat quarters are great for mini quilts or table toppers. I also like them for drawstring bags. The bundles work beautiful for me because I have a hard time selecting fabrics that look nice together. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Hi Julie! I would love to win this wonderful Hand Maker fat quarter bundle. I think it would be fun to make your Firecracker quilt with it. Thank you for the opportunity to enter your drawing.

Bec said...

I love fat quarters because you can do so many things with them. I'm working on a quilt right now that uses lots of fat quarters. The pattern is really a table topper called Short and Sweet, but I enlarged the blocks and am making a queen size quilt. It has alternating snowball blocks and 9-patch blocks and then has appliqued leaves on the border. It's really pretty and made out of my favorite Civil War fabrics.

mindi said...

Julie, your Firecracker quilt is so pretty! And, I love your blog. Thanks for all the great tutorials you have shared. And thanks for this fabulous giveaway! This Hand Maker fabric bundle would be great to use for your Stash Stack quilt, or your Candy Box quilt. Both super fun and super cute quilts. Maybe both will soon be on my favorites list. :)
