Did you know that the Craftsman Quilt pattern is my most popular quilt pattern to date? I figured it was time to make an updated version of this Fat Quarter friendly quilt. When I saw the recent bright and cheerful Eden fabric collection from Riley Blake, I knew I’d found the perfect match.
With the large, simple blocks, the Craftsman pattern was designed for showing off big, beautiful prints. The large blocks also make it a fast finish.
The Eden collection, designed by Gabrielle Neil Designs, has lots of gorgeous, graphic prints in a bright, saturated color palette.
The Eden Fabric collection is available from the Fat Quarter Shop, Missouri Star Quilt Co. (get 15% off with code AMYSAPRIL23 at checkout), and assorted Etsy sellers.
I’m especially smitten with the bold florals and those cute strawberry prints.
The Craftsman quilt pattern is Fat Quarter friendly – perfect for using that Fat Quarter bundle you’ve been saving for “just the right thing.” (Unless you are using a directional fabric, then I recommend ⅜ yard cuts.)
Fat Quarters + the white sashing fabric (Riley Blake Confetti Cotton in Cloud) was all that was used for this quilt, plus the outside border and binding.
The quilting on this one was done by Melissa of Sew Shabby Quilting using her Groovy Petals pantograph. I LOVE how it turned out.
The Craftsman pattern is available in Paper and downloadable PDF options in my Pattern Shop.
Can you enlarge this pattern to fit a queen size bed please?
I have several collections that will look wonderful with this pattern, and I bought the full Pixie Noel 2 collection just because I couldn’t resist and I know there is at least enough fabric for your Craftsman quilt and one more.
Is this pattern fat eighth friendly? If not , do you have any other patterns that are?
Unfortunately, fat eighths aren’t quite big enough for this pattern. I’m writing a quilt specifically for F8’ths right now. In the mean time, another option could be my Brickyard quilt.
I just made this pattern for my granddaughter using sport themed fabric . Love this pattern! I know I will make another one.
Oh, that’s so great to hear!
This would be great for some Ruby Star Christmas fabrics!
