Fabulously Fast Fall Quilts

I decided to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather and scenic foliage to finally take some photos of the remaining three quilts from my book, Fabulously Fast Quilts, that I hadn’t shot yet. And since they each had a nice autumn vibe, this felt like a good time to show them off.

These quilts were still with the publisher last spring when I took pictures of the others and then spent the summer hanging local quilt shops as part of a couple of trunk shows.

This one is a Jelly-Roll-friendly quilt called Diverging Diamonds.

This one was quilted with all-over Pebble quilting by Natalia Bonner. I love the texture it gives to the quilt as well as the way it echos the circle motifs in the various prints.

(This is a crib-sized quilt called Butterfly Effect and comes together super quickly. (There are also instructions for a twin-size version.)

The quilting on this one was done by Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting.

And finally, this quilt is called Floating Shoo-fly. It is a great quilt for using up scraps – especially low-volume prints. This version is very monochromatic, but I’d like to try it in bright contrasting colors as well.

The figure-eight quilting on this one was done by Emily Sessions. It’s so subtle, but I LOVE the way it finishes off the quilt!

As I mentioned, each of these quilts is in my book, Fabulously Fast Quilts. You can see most of the other quilts in this post. I still have signed copies in my shop and it is also available on Amazon.

If you make or have made something using the patterns from Fabulously Fast Quilts I would love to see them! You can add photos to the Fabulously Fast Quilts Flickr group, tag them #fabulouslyfastquilts on Instagram or Twitter, or email them to me at amy(@)diaryofaquilter.com.

    Your quilts look lovely. I especially love Diverging Diamonds. Love the colors in that Cosmo line. I actually have your book and made the Butterfly Effect quilt — so far the top is done so I haven't photographed it yet. But when I do, I'll let you know. Love your work!

    I&#39;ve seen that a few of your FQR students have added the quilts they started with you to their Finish Along lists, so you might see more tagged finishes soon :o)

    I love the loops in Shoo – fly. Very pretty effect and so different from what I normally see.<br />
