Magazine Quilt Kits and a Winner!

Whether you are an avid subscriber, collector of quilting magazines, or merely one of those dedicated people who relax in a local book store while sipping a great beverage and flipping through the most recent issue – do we have a big surprise in store for you!

The Fat Quarter Shop has several kits – 5 to be exact – featured in the new Quilts & More Fall 2010 issue. You will find projects for every member of the family…let’s see which one is your favorite! Will it be a colorful quilt, or maybe a kid sized apron or even a hanging organizer with pockets!

Here’s a brief description of each fabulous kit:

If you love bold colors, Hello Yellow is just for you! This quilt designed by Vickie Eapen finishes at 42 ½” x 70 ½”, so it is great for a throw to snuggle under while watching television, for the foot of a bed or over a chair back. The kit includes Moda’s Botany fabrics and the EZ Easy Dresden acrylic ruler. Cheerful gold, green and melon are simply luscious!

If something more traditional appeals to you, then try the Flight of Geese quilt kit designed by Vickie Eapen. This kit uses 40 fat quarters in fall colors from several different fabric collections and features the well known flying geese block. This one will suit anyone’s tastes and décor, and measures 60 ½” square.

How about something super easy and very soothing in shades of blue with a spark of yellow? The Bar Code quilt kit designed by Lori Mason is large enough for a twin or double bed, measuring 79 1/2” x 90 ½”. Simply sew together strips and you have a great quilt in no time!

Have kids who love to help in the kitchen or maybe they are little Picassos. The Squeaky Clean Apron kit designed by Marinda Stewart is ideal — apron has big roomy pockets for those necessary supplies. The fabric is Hello Betty laminated for easy clean-up! Whip up several for your kids and their friends!

Finally, the Dressed to Impress Organizer quilt kit has a place for your little one – or older one, for that matter – to put all those treasures that have a way of winding up all over the house! Expandable fabric pockets make this hanging organizer designed by Monica Solorio-Snow both fun and practical. The little doll dresses are printed on the fabric, so you can use the panel as is, or if you are really in a creative mood, you can embellish the dresses with buttons, appliqué collars, buttons, etc.

Please enjoy browsing through the magazine, and begin planning your projects now! The kits sell in a hurry once they are featured in a magazine!
