FQS Staff Gets Quilty!

Happy Saturday everyone! We are so excited to show you what we've been sewing this month in our "FQS Staff Gets Quilty" Series. There's so much inspiration to show you, so let's get started! 
Kimberly is a well-known quilting machine in the FQS headquarters. While running Fat Quarter Shop and It's Sew Emma, she managed to squeeze in a few projects up her quilting sleeve, starting with her 1930's Farmer's Wife Sew Along blocks. 

She's also getting ready for the 2016 Crossroads Quilt Along (starting February 15th). We still quilt kits and backing sets available using the Strawberry Fields Revisited collection by Fig Tree Quilts. 
Kimberly is also testing out patterns for the Antler Quilt Design Tablerunner club. Don't forget to sign up since spots are limited! 

Have you heard of Pat Sloan's My Secret Garden Free Mystery Block of the Month? If not, you should definitely sew along with her! Here is Kimberly's first block using Calico Days collection by Lori Holt. 

Moda Fabrics invited FQS to participate in the Moda Row Along and Kimberly could not resist sewing up a cute tablerunner from the book. 

Last but not least, Kimberly finished her Moda Sampler Block Shuffle quilt and she gave it her own twist by modifying the setting.

Codi always has two or ten projects she's working on. Like her 2016 Crossroads Quilt Along House blocks. Don't forget to check back on the blog February 15th for the first block pattern. 
For her Pat Sloan's My Secret Garden Free Mystery Block of the Month, she is using Pat's upcoming collection Hometown Girl (plus we will have quilt kits available soon). 

How cute is Codi's Moda Row Along tablerunner?

She also sewed up Aurifil 2016 January Designer of the Month mini quilt project using the Little Miss Sunshine collection by Lella Boutique.

When Sarah is not busy writing It's Sew Emma books, you can find her sewing small projects. She's almost finished with her Moda Sampler Block Shuffle blocks!

Her Moda Row Along reminds us of tropical beach homes! 

Sarah also finished our upcoming Shortcut Quilt called Layer Cake Lattice (launching in April 2016). 

Nova always has projects in her "quilty list," starting with Pat Sloan's My Secret Garden Free Mystery Block of the Month block. She decided to use 1930's feedsack inspired prints from the Bread 'N Butter collection by American Jane. 

Nova loves the traditional look of her Moda Row Along. She used the Larkspur collection by 3 Sisters to create an autumn inspired row. 

Deborah loves hand stitching so it's not surprise that she chose to sew the Winter Friends row for her Moda Row Along project. 

We've also been loving her Moda Sampler Block Shuffle blocks in the Aria collection by Kate Spain.
Deborah's Pat Sloan's My Secret Garden Free Mystery Block of the Month block is so bright and colorful in the Flow collection by Zen Chic. 

Cheryl has been quilting for years and always love to see what she's working on. Check out her Moda Sampler Block Shuffle blocks in the Hyde Park collection. Aren't they gorgeous? 

We would love to see what you've been working on this month. Share your creations with us using #fqsfun on Instagram and Twitter and you might just be featured on our social media. Have a quilty day!
