Yellow Brick Road Quilt...

Have you ever wanted to do something to use up some of those fat quarter? I do, so that way I can make room for MORE!! This quilt goes together so quickly you could do it in just a few short hours! When you purchase the pattern it includes dimensions from a crib size to a king and it really showcases prints that you love.

This is the season for babies, graduations and all sorts of reasons you may need a quick gift. I found myself in just this predicament, so this was the perfect quilt to whip together. I made mine out of our lovely Rose Cottage fabric line by Clothworks.

For the size I'm making you need 12 fat quarters... You begin with cutting all your fat quarters into strips, 2 at 6 1/2" x 21 and 2 at 3 1/2" x 21 mixing them up as you go. Then you sew the 6" ones to the 3" ones and sub cut.

You continue sewing and sub cutting until you get your final blocks. You will end up with 3 sets.


Once you have your 3 sets, you just lay them out turning each block as you go. When you get them the way you like them sew the rows together! That's it! I'm adding borders to mine and then I'll be done. So easy and fun!

Happy stitching and may your bobbin always be full!
