I somewhat reluctantly agreed to participate in the book tour for the Fat Quarter Style book. I say reluctantly because I really don’t often make quilts from patterns. However, I decided it would be worth taking a look, and in fact I’m glad I did!


The book offers 12 quilts in four different sizes that can be made from fat quarters. Most seem relatively easy to put together, and I can see these being great designs to turn to when you need a quick project.


I was asked to make a block from the Circuit quilt, which is a simple little block. So simple in fact, that I really couldn’t just show you one block, so instead I’ve made a baby quilt top. And honestly? It came together so quickly and I’m even happier with it than I thought I would be (sometimes it’s nice not to over think a quilt and instead just enjoy the fabrics!)


Speaking of fabrics, when looking for fabrics to use, I came across a pile I had pulled once upon a time (thought I see now I may have lost part of my stack!). It had sat for so long that I was really happy to finally put it to use. I added in a few cotton + steel basics and then mixed and matched the prints and solids in each block.


Want to make one of your own? The Fat Quarter Shop has generously sent an extra copy of this book for me to give away, so please leave a comment here to be in the running. I’ll select a winner on Sunday evening.
