I really liked the patterns in this Fat Quarter Style – they were all really fresh, new takes on traditional quilt designs – which is hard to do.
This book has 12 patterns and each design comes with instructions for the quilt in four sizes: crib, lap, twin, and queen. So nice when you can get some bang for your buck with multiple sizes. (I really liked this Primrose pattern.)
I was asked to play with the Blossom block – which was a really fun one to make.
I’m trying to push myself out of my primary-colors-with-white comfort zone when it comes to color scheme. So I got some of the new prints from the Cotton+Steel collections in this palette and pulled a few other prints from my stash that would coordinate. I used Kona Ash for my background color. And I like how it’s looking!
After being without my sewing machine for a lot of the summer, it’s been fun to sit down and sew again – especially to have a little more time to do it now that my kids are back in school. I’m excited to finish it up and will share the finished result soon!
Be sure to check out the other stops on the tour to see how other designers have put their own color-spin on the blocks and patterns in the book. Lots of great inspiration.
