Of course, you can choose fat quarters from your stash, too. Just decide on three colors and select four fat quarters of each. In this example the designer chose aqua, tan and red prints.
Blue, yellow and orange are lovely in the following version. Whatever colors you decide on will be too. A variety of prints and patterns will add interest and contribute to a scrappy look.
Once you have your 12 fat quarters, choose complementary yardage for the sashing and borders. An additional fat quarter is used for the cornerstones.
This is a wonderfully easy quilt to make, even for beginning quilters. If you can cut accurately and sew consistent quarter-inch seams you’ll have it done before you know it.
The finished quilt, from Carried Away Quilting, is 74″ x 74″.
