Fat Quarter Fizz!

Welcome to the newest quilt in the shortcut quilt series form the Fat Quarter Shop!

DSCN8804

The quilt is called “Fat Quarter Fizz”, is made using fat quarters and the possibilities are endless.

I’ve chosen to make my quilt using fabrics from our new “Weeds” collection.

But all types of fabrics will work from modern to traditional and everything in between!

Our quilter, Sharon Elsberry quilted this fun flower design using red thread in the dark areas …

And white on the light areas. I love this affect.

I just had to add my own touch and embellish one of the corners with our new Makin’ It Cute flower templates!

I used my favorite print from this fabric collection for my backing.

I like how the red quilted flowers run across the back!

This backing print was inspired by a vintage tablecloth!
