Simply Fat Quarters Showcase


It has been so much fun seeing each blogger on the Simply Fat Quarters Showcase create a quilt from our book. As each quilt takes shape, we imagine our Simply Fat Quarters quilts in so many different collections and sizes. The options are endless, and we hope to see all of you make a special quilt from the book.

Each blogger on the tour created a quilt from Simply Fat Quarters in their choice of fabric and size. Did you have a favorite? We simply can not decide on just one favorite. We love them all!


Sherri of A Quilting Life made the first stop on the Simply Fat Quarters Showcase. She made the Carousel quilt, adding a touch of charm with Aneela Hoey's Cherry Christmas.



Natalia of Piece and Quilt was next, creating her own bright version of the Spa quilt. She added vibrant color with Ellen Luckett Baker's Quilt Blocks collection, mixing an energetic collection with a calming design. The perfect juxtaposition!


Quilt Jane then revealed her punchy version of the Zap quilt. She used Pat Bravo's Indie and added some flair with a Pure Elements Mirage Blue background. The colors in this quilt are delicious!


The we headed to Quilt Market, where we saw 11(!!) Simply Fat Quarters quilts! Such a proud moment for the It's Sew Emma team! The quilt above is the Farmhouse Fun Quilt Kit featuring Jenn Ski's Oink-A-Doodle-Moo!


Next, Kaye Prince of Miss Print debuted her Poppy quilt in Chicopee.  The small prints and muted colors of Chicopee look fantastic in the Poppy pattern.  


Katy Jones of I'm a Ginger Monkey chose the Marbles pattern in Tula Pink's The Birds and the Bees.  Marbles is the perfect pattern for the large scale prints in The Birds and the Bees!


And the tour concluded with the talented Pat Sloan.  Pat chose the Boulevard pattern, featuring her new collection Eat Your Fruits and Veggies.  She added a touch of personal flair with some appliqued circles down the center zig.  The quilt shows off her new bright batiks so well! 

Thank you for following along as we introduced the quilts from Simply Fat Quarters.  Pick up a copy of the book in our shop and get started on your own Simply Fat Quarters quilt. We would love to see photos, don't forget to upload them to our Flickr group
