Once that’s complete make a second, smaller quilt with the leftover triangles. It finishes even more quickly.
Part of the beauty of this pattern is how wonderful it looks in various color combinations. You simply need to choose fat eighths with good contrast, whether between lights and darks or between hues.

Kimberly from The Fat Quarter shop demonstrates how the quilt is made in the following video.
The Fat Quarter Shop has a nice selection of fat eighth bundles to choose from for your version. You’ll find them here.
They also provide a free pattern. Instructions are included for 5 quilt sizes, from crib through king. The bonus quilt pattern using leftovers is also included.
The finished quilt demonstrated in the video is 48 1/2″ x 56 1/2″.
The bonus quilt at, 34″ x 41 1/2″, makes a lovely baby or table quilt. Or, hang it on the wall next to the larger quilt.
Julie, from JulieQ Quilts, arranged her triangles differently in the following two examples. She also has a shortcut that makes creating the bonus quilt go even more quickly. Learn how here.
The following video demonstrates how to make the “Fat Eighth Frenzy Bonus Quilt”. You’ll find more info about both quilts here.
