Year of the Fat Quarter with Fat Quarter Shop plus a GIVEAWAY


 Happy April! Have you heard Fat Quarter Shop has named 2018- The Year of the Fat Quarter. I LOVE it! April is all about GRAY and I just love this neutral bundle! This is one of my most favorite fabric bundles!


I love the new Riverside Pattern by It's Sew Emma Patterns and knew it would be perfect for this bundle! The pattern shows off each fabric so well and I love the modern look! 


Supplies to make your own Riverside Quilt (lap size) 56: x 73"

4. Flora and Fawn - 1 yard (extra fat quarter and binding)


I really loved sewing this quilt! I followed the Riverside pattern and trimmed each block to size- which did take a bit of time...but worth it! A little "how to " video by FQS.



For the binding- I chose to use Flora and Fawn Weave fabric, which I love! 



Who else is excited about Year of the Fat Quarter? It is my favorite pre-cut size as it is so versatile! Plus they look all cute stacked and folded!

Finished quilts also look cute folded....

Stars and Stripes Pillow with Wonderland Fabric by Rifle Paper Co


Soooo.....it has been awhile since I foundation paper pieced and I forgot just how much I LOVE the crisp points!  They are just so lovely! Yay for precise points with no pins....whoo hoo!



When Jemima (Tied With a Ribbon) asked if I wanted to test her Stars and Stripes Pillow Pattern...of course I said YES. I just love her patterns plus this one was perfect for fussy cutting my Wonderland Fabric by Rifle Paper Co.  I love the Stars and Stripes pattern as Jemima included both patterns with great instructions for foundation paper piecing, which is super helpful if you are new to it or need a refresher ;). 



Fabric I used for my Stars and Stripes Pillow (size 16.5"x 16.5")
