Year of the Fat Quarter at Fat Quarter Shop: January

Welcome to our Year of the Fat Quarter Quilt Along! This month, we are featuring the color cream in our January 2018 Year of the Fat Quarter Bundle! We are beyond excited to start month 1 of this year long quilt along!

We are dedicating 2018 to our favorite little precut, the fat quarter! We are doing this to celebrate our 15th anniversary as a company and because a fat quarter has 18″ x 20″ of usable fabric (too perfect!). Every first Friday of the month, we will be featuring one of our wonderful quilters and the project they make with their Year of the Fat Quarter Bundle!

January Project made by Fat Quarter Shop

For our Year of the Fat Quarter project, we made the Tail Feathers Quilt! We loved using the cream colored fabrics featured in our January 2018 Year of the Fat Quarter Bundle and contrasting it with black fabrics to create this gorgeous quilt. Get the pattern for the Tail Feathers Quilt here!

We are sew happy to have 9 wonderful bloggers making projects out of each of the Year of the Fat Quarter Bundles with us! Be sure to check out their blogs to see the details of their projects and keep up with the Year of the Fat Quarter fun on with #fqsyotfq on Instagram!

Classic & Vintage: Double 9 Patch

Happy Friday Quilters! We are adding another pattern to our Classic & Vintage series: Double 9 Patch! For those who are unfamiliar with our Classic & Vintage series, we focus on traditional quilt blocks and add a modern twist!

The Double 9 Patch quilt is a classic pattern that is made up of 5 nine-patch blocks, sewn together to make a unique block, and is making a comeback in popularity. Kimberly made her Double 9 Patch quilt using Project Red by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics. The traditional piecing of the quilt makes for gorgeous blocks and quilts of all sizes!

The complete Double 9 Patch is available for purchase at fatquartershop.com. To make a quilt just like ours, we have a Double 9 Patch quilt kit and separate backing set available!

If you’re ready to sew along with us, grab  your supplies, download your FREE block pattern and watch Kimberly’s video tutorial for a step-by-step guide on making your block!

 

We are very fortunate to have 21 amazing bloggers quilting along with us! Check out their takes on the Double 9 Patch blocks:
