We are so excited to be included in this special issue, America Makes Fast Quilts! This issue is right up our alley with our “go-go-go” attitudes. Quick but still special – these are our mainstay quilts!
Today we get to show off our three projects in the magazine!
I always love working with Kate Spain fabric, and I thought the gray solid would help her fabric pop! With a mixture of blues, magentas, purples and yellows this quilt will work with most home décor. Since Pick Up Sticks is a strippy quilt, it works well with 2 ½” strips. Have a little fun in your living room with the Pick Up Sticks quilt!
I named this quilt Funfetti because it just looks like a party to me. Patty Young’s Textured Basics puts the wow in these simple blocks, which are fat quarter friendly. Use a variety of prints, and mix and match to your heart’s delight. Altogether you get a quick, modern quilt with endless possibilities. Try it with all striped prints, or solids. I would love to see what you come up with! For our version in Textured Basics, we have kits available!
I love Odds & Ends because of the flipped color values – dark and light greys and taupes give you a sophisticated and smoky quilt. I also love how scrappy it looks – and again, it’s made with fat quarters! This one comes out rather large, for a fast lap quilt that will keep several laps comfy. My favorite part is the offset border effect; it definitely makes it unique and different. You don’t have to stick with a monochromatic look though – try some brights or batiks, they would look excellent here as well. For our Portico version, kits are available here!
