five fat quarter fun quilt

We are super excited to bring you the second edition of 5 Fat Quarter Fun!!!  Amber from Gigi’s Thimble and I have been cooped up all January – she lives in the snow and it’s been raining every day here in Southern California!  This quilt is the perfect quilt to snuggle with on the couch while you watch the winter weather.  And best of all… only need 5 fat quarters and background yardage to get started!!DSC_0930 2

I love how Amber and I used the exact same pattern and our quilts have totally different looks!  So fun!!!

I choose a mixture of wintery grays.  My living room and dining room are decorated farmhouse neutral and all my quilts are bright colors – which means I have zero quilts in my living room (gasp).  This quilt is going to look perfect on my couch with my fur pillows and galvanized buckets!!!  I can’t sew fast enough!



This is such a fun block!  It looks more complicated than it really is!  You can sew them up in a snap!IMG_8748

After you sew the 12 blocks you are ready for sashing!!IMG_8751

Now I wish I had a table runner to match!!!IMG_8778

I quilted this myself – which is never my favorite but I did it!  I chose a black and gray plaid flannel for the back and quilted meandering lines all over.

I stayed up late with my little helper binding because I am super exited to get it finished!!!!


I LOVE how it looks in my living room!  I don’t think I need tons of neutral quilts in my life but this one is a perfect fit!!


Mufasa loves it too!!!

Do you ever wander around the quilt shop loving everything you see and not really knowing what to buy?  You feel totally overwhelmed with wanting EVERYTHING in the shop, your husband’s voice is echoing in your ear saying you don’t need more fabric, and your latest bank statement is fresh on your mind?  My friend, Amber from @Gigi’s_Thimble, and I came up with the idea of 5 Fat Quarter Fun when we met up at a quilt shop and had a similar experience.


So, every month we are offering you a free pattern that requires only 5 Fat Quarters and background yardage to complete the quilt top!!!!  That sure makes wandering around a quilt shop more fun!!!  Just pick out 5 fat quarters and you are good to go!!
