Okay, so it is no secret that I love the Fat Quarter Shop's Shortcut Quilt series. They are so fun for making a quilt that really goes together in a snap. They have covered every pre-cut except for the Fat Eighth Bundle and today is it's day to shine!!! Fat Eighth Frenzy is here and it even comes along with a bonus quilt!!!
I was super excited when I saw this pattern and even more excited when I was trying to decide what fabric bundle to use and stumbled upon the Ann Kelle Remix Fat Eighth bundle. Oh, I do love me some rainbow goodness!!! And I knew that this pattern would just be so fun in a rainbow.
I started Fat Eighth Frenzy and had the quilt top done in no time. I just love these short-cut quilts. I just wrote right on my pattern where I wanted the colors placed. And I was so happy when it was all done. I mean seriously, you cant help but smile at a rainbow ;)
I quilted my Fat Eighth Frenzy with some large swirls. I wanted to keep it pretty soft and love how the large swirls really tied into the large design :)
And then it was time to use the leftovers ;) Yippee for some HST goodness!!! I once again mimicked the rainbow layout with just a few changes to keep the colors balanced that I had. The fun thing about this bonus is that the layout possibilities are endless. I mean, 2 in 1 projects are always fun but then getting to make it entirely your own, . . double bonus!!! I think this would make the cutest car seat snuggler ;)
And if you do large swirls on the large quilt, you obviously are going to quilt small swirls on the small quilt ;) I just love quilting swirls!!!
And now I know you want to whip one up yourself, it is just so easy and fun!!! You can find the free downloadable pattern here :) And yes, like all the other shortcut quilts, Kimberly has done a wonderful video tutorial that walks you through step by step of each quilt. Here is the Fat Eighth Frenzy Tutorial and here is the Bonus Quilt Video ;) These are so great for all of us visual learners ;)
So pop on over to Fat Quarter Shop and get your pattern and a Fat Eighth Bundle!!! Fat Quarter Shop has even marked down all of their Fat Eighth Bundles 20% Off just for the release of this fun new short-cut quilt!! Yippee!!!
