My husband calls me a hoarder, I resent this, I feel I am more of a collector.
I collect beautiful yarns, fabrics, ribbons, clothes, shoes…well you get the idea.
I have amassed quite a collection of fat quarters since I started quilting 10 years ago.
This is just a small sample of the collection. Needless to say I have to figure out some way to use them or my husband will have a coronary!
The question I had to ask myself was: What can you get out of a fat quarter?
Well, for all you quilters, here is the answer!
Fat Quarter Squares:
99 – 2″ Squares or
50 – 2.5″ Squares or
42 – 3″ Squares or
30 – 3.5″ Squares or
20 – 4″ Squares or
16 – 4.5″ Squares or
12 – 5.5″ Squares or
9 – 6″ Squares or
6 – 6.5″ Squares
Now that is just squares! Imagine what other shapes you could get out of your fat quarters.
I am so excited I might just have to go make a few blocks from the 50 fat quarters pictured above.
Are you inspired to do something with your stash? Do you want to do something with mine? Leave a comment on any post this week for a chance to win this fat quarter! It is from the Fat Quarter Queen -Cindy Surina – Custom Creations. I purchased this 9 years ago at the same time I purchased my sewing machine at the Pacific International Quilting Fest
in Santa Clara, CA.
Now get sewing!!
