Fat Quarter Quilts! Tips for Choosing Fabric … watch Stephanie do a fabric pull from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Scrappy and fat quarter quilts are so much fun to make, but choosing fabric that looks nice together can be one of the hardest parts of the process.

In today’s bonus video, Stephanie turned the camera on while she narrowed 42 fat quarters from Tula Pink’s True Colors collection down to 14 for a quilt she is working on for her next book.

The video is a little different format than we normally make because I literally only have an idea of what I want for color when we start, and you get a peak into my thought ...

Fast, Beginner-Friendly Fat Quarter Pattern Modern Rainbow Bargello – Reflection from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

The design for Reflection came to me in the middle of the night while feeding my newborn daughter. It was back when life was normal, and I thought a rainbow bargello would be a fantastic way to highlight the beautiful color transitions in Midsommar by Pippa Shaw for Figo.

Now that we are all stuck indoors for the foreseeable future, I feel like a bright rainbow quilt is the perfect antidote to the blues that can come with social distancing. And since it is a quick project, you can snuggle under it and feel better soon when it is done ...

Strip Pieced Fat Quarter Friendly Pattern with Half Square Triangles – Secret Treasure from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

This month’s fabric is so pretty. Bloom Bloom Butterfly from RJR Fabrics is a fabulous combination of watercolor-like images of butterflies and flowers with bold, vibrant colors.

Each fabric pushes the boundaries of the number of inks that can be used in traditional rotary screen-printed fabric, so each one offers a big punch of colors. When the bold hues are combined with the soft images, it just is a fabulous combination.

As always this pattern and every other one we have designed for the Stashin’ with Stephanie series is FREE for members. But you can also download it individually ...

Connected - A New Quilt Pattern in 6 Sizes! from Busy Hands Quilts


Connected is a design that just happened on the computer when I was playing around with blocks.


Do you think it's strip pieced? ... 


Of course it is!  I love strip pieced quilts and write my patterns with strip piecing when ever possible.  This quilt is no exception.



Fabric selection tips 


Choosing fabrics for a quilt pattern couldn't be easier than for Connected.  Here are some guidelines:
  • Colors on opposite sides of the color wheel.  This is the principle behind my choice of orange and navy.  In this quilt the orange is considered the "lighter" fabric and the navy ...

It’s Stashin’ with Stephanie time again where we take a fat quarter bundle and make a new fast, fun, scrappy quilt design with it.

This quilt has a little bit of everything. We are strip piecing, sewing at an angle to create a pattern that looks complicated without too much fuss and no templates.

For this quilt I used Alison Glass Holiday, and I love how it kind of looks like candy cane stripes twisting around. But you could certainly use anything in your stash to make this happen. Just make sure you pick a fabulous neutral ...
