A Bonus Quilt Uses Up Leftovers!

What do you do with a pack of fat eighths? Make a charming pair of quilts. The original “Fat Eighth Frenzy” quilt is so easy and fast to make. You can have the entire quilt finished up in just a few hours.

Once that’s complete make a second, smaller quilt with the leftover triangles. It finishes even more quickly.

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
