Your Firecracker quilt is stunning! I Love it! My favorite quilt to make with fats is a scrappy version of Off The Rails, in fact I'm making one right now.

Emily C said...

I love the make ohio star baby blankets.

Liz Bess said...

I don't have a go to fat quarter quilt pattern but you have a few beautiful pattens I am waiting to try and this fat quarter bundle would look beautiful in any one of them!

Joyful Quilter said...

I've made several of your table toppers and quilts recently - I'll be getting Day Break back from the long arm quilter soon. My other favorite pattern is Terry Atkinson's Yellow Brick Road.

Laura said...

Fat quarters are great for disappearing nine patch. So much fun to see the variety.

I love Shimmer patten by Cluck cluck sew, its perfect for fat quarters, thanks for the chance! Alicuz(dot)ms at Verizon (dot)net.

Kelly said...

I tend to buy mostly fat quarters and use them as I need them. I'm relatively new to quilting (and acquiring a stash)I make a lot of smaller projects like table runners, everything bags and one hour baskets, all very fat quarter friendly! Thanks for the chance to win!!

Maroesja said...

I make bags, still watn to try quilts so I don't have a favorite pattern (yet?)

ozone3 said...

Love any and all FQ Quilts (I think I'm addicted to FQ's!!)

Thanks for the chance to win@@

kara said...

Other than using them for quilts-- I like variety, semi-scrappy but coordinated-- I do use them to make custom lunch bags.

Vicki in MN said...

I don't have one specific FQ quilt. I love to make table toppers and often use FQ's in them.

greeneggs said...

Love the firecracker quilt you've made. I don't really have a go-to pattern for FQs. I guess nine patch is my default when I don't have a lot of time. Thanks for the lovely prize.

Angela said...

What beautiful prints! Great prize! I like to make modified Slashed Squares with fat quarters.

Love yourfirecracker mini. I'm currently trying to do the Splendin Sampler blocks sticking to a fat quarter collection that I won in a contest last year. It's been a fun challenge. So far I've only added some background solids and one accent color.

I use fat quarters for lots of different quilt blocks, banks, etc, but this might just be my favorite yet! Love the spinning look to the stars in this firecracker quilt.

What gorgeous fabric. I purchase fat quarters much more often than I purchase yardage. I think my go to pattern would be the classic log cabin or else the similar classic courthouse steps.

I like to make totes and pillows. I am inspired to try a modern quilt with diamond shapes scattered over the surface.

My go-to pattern using FQ for a quick quilt is "Yellow Brick Road". I just bought a new book on modern quilting and can't wait to use some of those patterns---maybe find a new go-to!
