Starboard and 75 Fun Fat Quarter Quilts!!

Today I am super excited to share with you one of those secret projects that I have been no so patiently waiting to show.   This is Starboard and it is featured in the newly released 75 Fun Fat-Quarter Quilts book by C & T Publishing!!!


I just love this quilt!!!  I love the chain that is created around the stars, it just gives so much movement to the quilt ;)   The fabrics I used are The Boat House by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics and I just love the fun nautical feel they give the quilt.  It just reminds me of pennants dancing in the wind along a dock ;)  


I decided to quilt this with one of my favorite all over fillers. I did about a medium scale and quilted a combination of swirls, echoed paisleys, and pebbles.   I just love the extra movement it gives to the quilt.


And the textures is oh so yummy.   Love it!!!   And no surprise here, I used my favorite 402 So Fine Superior Thread that just blends away perfectly onto the white background ;)  


And that is Starboard!!!  I hope you love it as much as I do and I am just so excited that I am finally getting to share it with you all ;)   



Let me tell you a little about the book ;)   75 Fun Fat-Quarter Quilts is an amazing collaboration book!!!  It starts with 13 Quilts from different designers and then we were asked to take that original quilt and change it up, and then change it up again, and then change it up some more ;)  Resulting in 75 amazing quilt designs!!!  So fun ;)


 I decided to play with the layouts of my blocks.   The blocks in Starboard all have 8 HST's and 8 Squares and so I kept that constant in each of my twists.  Every block in all of my variatons have 8 HST's and 8 squares, and then I changed up the placement of the units and  added some sashing or put it on point.  The results are 6 additional designs in varying sizes that are all quick to make and so, so, much fun!!!





Aren't they so much fun!!!!   Each quilt starts with some favorite Fat Quarters and a background fabric.  So the cutting is done in no time and you can get right to sewing ;)   I can't wait to make up each of these designs.  I totally want to drop everything now and make that cute Christmas Tree one!!!  So cute!!!

And there is going to be lots more 75 Fun Fat Quarter Quilts fun!!  Be sure to pop in to all of the stops along the blog hop to see the amazing original quilts and all the fun twists that were added to them ;)

  1. Melissa, I hazard a guess that it is over 100 fat quarters, but beyond that...? I find that lately I often buy a half yard rather than a fat quarter. What a great book!

  2. Im happy to say maybe only 50 or so. I like to keep a handle on the stash. My house is not too big. I cannot wait to see this book. I love this quilt

    ReplyDelete
  3. Um, glad we're not actually counting! :) I guess around 50 or so. I find that I'd rather buy yardage and get a half to a yard of fabric for two reasons: one - I don't always like every print in a FQ set and two - sometimes you don't cut right or really like the print and need just that little bit extra!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I probably have about 50 fat quarters in my stash. I'm trying to use them up!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Haha! My stash is mostly Fat Quarter or smaller...what most people would call their scraps, lol! That said, I undoubtedly have well over 200 fat quarters to play with! I love your quilt, and the concept of the book...it really sounds like such fun! The "chains" put me in mind of kind of the effect I was after with my Breezy Buntings(MBS) quilt...yours is much simpler to accomplish tho, I'm sure...you have that knack :)

    ReplyDelete
  6. I have a very big stash of fabric - just cannot stop buying...recently picked up a bundle from Alison Glass - one of each of her handprint fabrics - I think I counted 47 in the stack....overall I probably have 300 to 400 FQ's

    ReplyDelete
  7. Luckily you didn't want an exact number! I probably have at least 75 or more fat quarters in my stash. This will be a great resource to help use them up. Love your pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I have 250 fat quarters. I buy mainly fat quarters anyway, but i bought a LOT for fat quarter bundles several upcoming quilt a longs, a couple of upcoming birthday quilts, plus all the sets I already had. Then my mom went crazy on black Friday and bought me a ton of bundles (i love that woman). We just spent this weekend reorganizing my sewing studio and we just happened to count my fat quarters. I had 262, but i gave my daughter a bundle for a project she is doing. Thankfully i have great storage for all my fabrics. I need this book apparently, lol.

  10. I don't think I can count that high. Maybe I need this book?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I bet I have over 1000 fat quarters in my stash and I'm not about to count them.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I've got more yardage than fat quarters, so my number is rather low. I'm guessing 100.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't know the exact count but there's probably at least 6 different FQ bundle collections in my stash.

    ReplyDelete
  14. It's gotta be over 100. I love that star quilt, so very cute.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I just received my Black Friday purchases, which were all FQs. Add those to what I already have, I would say 1500 - yikes!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Cute Quilt! and love your variations too! I would have to guess that I have at least 400 or 500 fat quarters hanging around. I really should do something with those (wink).

    ReplyDelete
  17. Isn't it fun to see how rearranging the HSTs can bring a totally different look? How many FQs you ask--wild guess 250, mostly in a collection set that I loved. This book would definitely be useful to me. Thanks, Melissa. I enjoy your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I belonged to a monthly mail out fat quarter club waaaay too long so I have over 200 FQs. I'm looking for ways to use them and this book seems perfect!

  20. I have mostly half yard cuts, , but do have some FQ bundles, and some in the bins of individual colours, especially neutrals I am guessing a few hundred.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I mostly have half yard. Most of the fat quarters are ready and waiting for specific projects. I love this quilt and all its variations!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I do have a lot of fat quarters, maybe 20??? Well, now that I have read some of the other comments 20 doesn't sound like so many!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I have most of my fat quarters in one place, but others are spread out. Hard to say. I'm guessing somewhere between 100 - 200 fat quarters. Yikes! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love fat quarters - must have at least 100 - 150 in my stash!!
    fabricstasher24@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  25. OMG! I love your Starboard quilt and all the variations. It's hard to believe you can get so many totally different quilts from the same blocks. They are just beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Probably a 100 or so. Love the different options in the book.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree with Bec, the differences in the quilts you've shown are amazing! Umm, I'm glad you said don't count. . . it's over 300 but possibly under 500... :) I went through a FQ faze . . . or haze LOL Always trying to figure out the perfect pattern for the bundles I have. Not a fan of scraps (I know!) so when I use them, I want to use them ALL :D I find that when they are a read as solid fabric, they are the perfect size for a mini whole cloth quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I probably have 25. Don't ask how many yards of fabric I have....I used to work in a quilt shop. Outgrowing my craft room.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Used to belong to a fat quarter club- trying to use them all but still probably have about 250

    ReplyDelete
  30. Gosh who knows:) ha ha!!! 200+++++

    ReplyDelete
  31. I probably have around 250 - 300 fat quarters. Your quilt is beautiful and I like how you changed it around and can see why you want to make the Christmas tree quilt. Thanks for a chance to win a copy of the book.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think I must have about 200 fat quarters. It is fun to see how the same blocks look so different with a different setting or colors.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh man that's tough. I love buying FQs. They are so easy to pop onto my stack to purchase. They are the perfect size! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'd say I probably have about 70-80 fat quarters, I think! Thanks for the chance to win this great book!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like Starboard! I have around 400 FQs in my stash, mostly collection bundles.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Please don't tell my husband but there are at least 150, and that's not including the 1/2 yards or other yardage. But Shhhhhh.... Don't tell I'd rather delude myself into thinking he's clueless.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I've pared down my stash lately, so I would I only have 30-40.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ooooh my...at least 100...maybe even 125!!! lol

    MERRY CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Let's say 200. I bet they've been sneaking up on me, because when I want an entire collection, this is what I go for.

    ReplyDelete
  40. My guess would be around 150, including a bundle plus some stash I've been collecting for your rainbow I Spy pattern. Thanks for the chance!
    basaran.family@rogers.com

    ReplyDelete
  41. I am sure I have at least 200, maybe more. I buy them when I just can't resist the fabric but don't know what to do with it! This book would certainly help me with inspiration. Thanks for the giveaway. Helen G. hrglover@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  42. I guess I have about 150 FQs, mostly from buying bundles. I seldom buy random fat quarters. They are all looking pretty in a 7 foot tall CD tower. So it seems that I could use this book!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I guess I may have 50 fat quarters in my stash. Enjoy your blog. Thank you for the chance to win the book. Your layouts are great.

  49. Starboard really does look like pennants dancing in the wind. A wonderful quilt Melissa! How fun to be a part of this collaborative effort - Congratulations! 75 FQ designs is pretty amazing too!
    I think I have more than 200 fat quarters in mustache, LOL. Mostly in bundles.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Your quilt is lovely and I sure do hope I win a copy of the book. I must have about 20 fat quarters right now. But I have so much other material too so I know I can make lots of quilts that are in the book.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Love your "Starboard" quilt and I automatically see stars! This would make a wonderful Quilt of Valor in reds and blues. I have several hundred fat quarters.

    ReplyDelete
  52. um... seems like I am in the too many to count range. But I do have yardage as well. It could be as high as 150 but don't hold me to that! :-) Love your quilt designs. Thanks for sharing. K- lkw2x6-apq@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  53. Whole fat quarters, maybe 10, but with partial ones probably about 40.

  54. Starboard and all the variations are great! As to how many fat quarters are in the stash, it's definitely at least 300...

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oh, my how many fat quarters. Why don't I say 100. Loving what I see about this book so far.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Fat quarters- mere scraps that are larger than normal! About 200 but who is counting.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I used to buy mostly fat quarters and know that I have at least 350. I need to use some of them....

    ReplyDelete
  59. I don't buy them very often (well, except when I visit a new quilt shop--I buy at least 1 then or when new 30s conversationals come out! I get lots as gifts--I probably have around 300 or so (nothing like the 1/2 yds or yards......!)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I asked my granddaughter and she said "a bunch." I estimate about 200 so I definitely need to win this book so I can use some of them up!

    ReplyDelete
  61. What a great new book. Congratulations on your quilt entry! I bet I have a zillion fat quarters. I prefer those as I like to make scrappy quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Love this book! I have 5 plastic shoeboxes of fat quarters and then some others here and there!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I probably have about 75 fat quarters. I would love to win this book.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Love your new quilts shown here! I'm thinking I have about 100 fat quarters in my stash but that is only a guess. I think fat quarters are my favorite pre-cut so I look forward to seeing all the new ideas for using them. Thank you for the sweet giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I would say I have around 25, I do try to use up before I buy more. This book is something I would love.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Easily 4000, yes 4 thousand. Don't tell my hubby.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Well, it does look like fun! My favorite is your quilt in the book! I love it Melissa!

    ReplyDelete
  68. OMG maybe around 80 FQs. So the quilt patterns are perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I will guess 75 - 100. The variations you show here are great options.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Maybe 30? That's just probably the uncut ones. This looks like a great book. Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Shhhhhh....about 200. Your quilt is twinkling!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Because I'm the 8oth comment on this post, I'll guess that I have 80 fat quarters. Actually, that is likely a very close estimate! Merry Christmas to you, Melissa!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I'd say probably 400 or so. So many and not enough time to sew them all! :-) Your quilt is so pretty, and I love the variation that looks like fish! Cute! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  74. I need to get busy, I probably have 150.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I know there about 10 bundles still tied with bows in addition to the loose ones that multiply like rabbits. Maybe a couple hundred? Maybe more? Better get busy!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I probably have about 60 fat quarters. I don't want to count them, I'd rather not face the truth. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Love your quilt...and the fish as well! I probably have 100 FQ's. I justify my stash by remembering that it costs less and has fewer calorie than a fancy cup of coffee ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Gorgeous!!! I must have at least 75 to 100!

    ReplyDelete
  79. 213 Ish .
    I love your bottom layout as it looks like little fish swimming to the west .


    schimmel.db@gmail .com

    ReplyDelete
  80. You are so creative. Love the bottom left variation. I bet I have close to 150 FQ's. I could use several FQ's making quilts from this book.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I don't have as many FQs as I'd like to have, but I'll guess 37. :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I'm going to say somewhere around 35. Thanks for a great blog to visit.
    Shelia@stitchedfromtheheart@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm more of a yardage girl but I do have at least a hundred or more fat quarters. Love all your designs and when I win the book will make a few, ha! Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Scary reality for me to figure out how many fat quarters in my stash... very scary! I sew in two different homes and so, between the two sewing rooms, I will guess 300? Oh, that seems like a lot! But really, it is just over 75 yards right? Which is 37 yards at each house.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Oh, my, your quilt is beautiful!

    I think I have at least 100 FQs in my stash. I am trying to use them up, so this book would be great to have in my library!

  86. I almost hate to think sbout how many fat quarters I have --- it is the way I add fabrics to my stash, without buying yardage. I suspect I have at least 150. ...and I am particularly fond of scrap quilts.

  87. I think I have over 75 fat quarters. I need this book. Love your quilts, thank you for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Probably around 30; I don't have much of a stash (yet)

    ReplyDelete
  93. I would guess 150 but I bet it is a lot closer to 300. They have so many uses and then I hate to use them. So what can you do except buy more.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I have about 40...lol..some wholly intact while others have been cut into.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I probably have 30 bundles of FQs plus the uncounted random left overs or one at a timers. I am excited that the last 3 quilts used up almost every FQ in 2 long time bundles. My goal is to use more of them this year before buying more. Love the quilt and the alternate blocks. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  96. While I'm not a FQ groupie, I probably have 150 or more! pjrquilter (at) msn (dot) com

  98. I love your quilt and this book! So many possibilities. I would guess I have 500ish fat quarters so I definitely need this book and to get busy!

    ReplyDelete
  99. I must have over 75 fat quarters waiting to be used. This book looks like a great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I tend to buy half meters but that will not stop me from using this book, have already ordered it from amazon, fingers crossed it comes before Christmas

    ReplyDelete
  101. I always said I wouldn't just buy fabric. Ha! I lied. I think about 300 fat quarters are in my stash. Better go sew! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  102. About 50 fat quarters live in my stash! Love your quilts!!!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I probably have hundreds--I've lost count! This book would help me corral many of them into great quilts, I'm sure.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Oh gosh! Well it looks like I'm normal, reading the other comments, hehe. I have about 175-200 fat quarters.

    Thanks for a chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I am sure I have at least 200.

    ReplyDelete
  106. If they're still tied in a bundle do they count? I probably have about 300, I just can't resist them.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Oh wow. That's a good question. They're so addictive to buy, especially when you have a small fabric budget. As an estimate I'd say....about 100?

    ReplyDelete
  108. I don't have many "official" fat quarters, maybe about 40. But I tend to buy remnants at the fabric store, so I have a lot of quarter- to half-yard pieces. I really like your pattern and the options for making it different ways. ajdepue@juno.com

    ReplyDelete
  109. I probably have about 30, but I'm always buying remnants, so I have a sizeable stash. I'd love to make a fat quarter quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Wow! How many? Lots!!! I have them sorted by color.....my best guess...200 give or take.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Don't laugh. I just started quilting and I think I might have around 8. I'm anxious to get more!!! I'm excited about this book it looks like fun!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Maybe 50 or so? Just getting back into quilting after a long hiatus. But I'd love an excuse to go get some. I love how your design feels both traditional and fresh at the same time. Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Somewhere between 50 and 100. I love fat quaters and am always looking for ways to put them into quilts! Thank you for the chance to win this book!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I don't know, I buy my fabrics from the remnants bin, unless I have a specific project in mind when buying (and when I have a project I want to make, I dive in my fabrics and work with what I have), but I want to treat myself on a nice bundle and make something for me.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I am sure it is over 100 probably closer to 200! Happy Holidays! Great quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I buy mostly yardage then if I need I can cut into fat quarters. I probably have about 25 in my stash though. Can't wait to see the book.

  119. Wow! How many fat quarters?? I would imagine I have at least 300! (How did THAT happen?) Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  120. I've never counted but can give a conservative estimate at 500. Fun to see all your different block layouts!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Ha! I have no idea how many fat quarters I have, but I am sure it's somewhere between 500 to 1000--I need this book!!

    ReplyDelete
  122. I'm glad I didn't have to count! The total is well over 200 I'm sure & I just ordered a set of 28 different shades of chambray. After I finish my daughters wedding quilt, I have many scrappy projects in my future. This looks like a great book, thanks!

  135. I'm going to estimate around 250 - 300. That's sounds so bad when you put a number to it! I better get sewing!

    ReplyDelete
  136. I would guess several hundred fat quarters....but don't tell my husband!!

    ReplyDelete
  137. I am sure I have at least 100 FQ's but maybe more. I like to keep a lot of colors for applique. I really like your quilts in the book.

  139. Ha! No way am I counting. I'm going to guess based only on the strict, folded, FQ's--not scraps, not formerly half-yards--and say 75. Now, how to explain the piles and piles of fabric that doesn't fall into the FQ category? I'd better get quilting, or I'm just a fabric collector.

  140. I would say I have about 150 FQs.....which doesn't include the ones I have already designated for a project.....yikes! Better get sewing.....after the holidays!

  141. Pretty sure I don't even want to count or I might have to admit to my husband I have too many! What an amazing quilt and I love the variations. thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of this book.

  142. I think I have around 60ish. Maybe more. ;) Thanks for the chance to win! Love your quilt and the variations.

  146. Haha, you're making us confess. :) Oh, at least 100 . . . (or more)!

  147. I'm guessing over 300. A friend is moving and she gifted me her stash, so I am still sorting and I really have no idea how many fat quarters I have added to what I already had.

  148. I'm sure it's well over 1000. 😁. This book would be a start to help put them in something more useful than a shelf.

  149. 75, at the most! Plenty for a quilt or two! Thank you for the opportunity! Brookelyn.kelley@gmail.com

  150. I must have over 200 FQs. It is hard (mentally) to cut them!

  151. I thought I had just a few, than organized them and found I had many more than what I thought. Maybe 30?

    ReplyDelete
  152. I have about 120 give or take ! I hope to get more soon ! Love the book !

    ReplyDelete
  153. I. Probably have approximately 100 fat quarters in my stash. I love the quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  154. I only have around 50 right now. Really trying to use what I have! I just love your quilt and thanks for showing us different variations. So creative.

  155. Maybe about 10-12? They are all pre-washed and folded with other yardage so it's hard to tell. chocolatewiskers@aol.com

  156. I would say about 10. thank you for the chance

  159. At first, I was thinking I only had around 100 fat quarters, but then I started reading everyone's comments, and realized that I probably have over 200. I just wasn't counting the ones already set aside for specific projects!

    ReplyDelete
  160. Counting only the pieces which are fat quarters, not smaller or bigger, maybe 40.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Well, out of the 1000 or so of yards of fabric, I'd say somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 fat quarters as I really like yardage!!

    ReplyDelete
  162. I tell you, it's very reassuring to see so many quilters have a TON of fat quarters in their stash. I have no idea how many I have, but it's probably enough to make every quilt in the book! Bring it on!!!

    ReplyDelete
  163. I think I have too many! I love your quilt and the variations!

  164. Hi Melissa,
    I just finished your Starboard pattern in Summer Breeze fabrics, adding one row to the length to make it full size. You can see it here: http://busyhandsquilts.blogspot.com/2016/04/custom-full-size-starboard-quilt-in.html
