An inspiring resource for quilters--especially beginners--fat quarters are pre-assorted bundles of colorful, coordinating fabric scraps, so the "choosing" is already done for you!
Fat Quarter Workshop features 12 stunning quilt patterns and step-by-step projects using these convenient 18-inch by 21-inch bundles, plus insightful details on how to choose fabrics and colors to use in your quilt projects. The wider, shorter cut of fat quarters makes them versatile to use in quilt patterns because you can cut a large variety of shapes from them. Also, by using little bits of a lot of fabrics, it is easy to create a scrappy look without needing to have a massive stash of fabric!
This book provides helpful overviews on the principles of modern design, essential tools, and techniques for piecing, making a quilt sandwich, and finishing a quilt. You'll build your skills as you complete the 12 full-size modern quilt projects. Each quilt uses fat quarter bundles (a color-coordinated assortment of pre-cut fabrics), which make choosing your fabrics straightforward and simple. The projects can be completed by quilters of any skill level, as step-by-step instructions, complete patterns, detailed diagrams, expert tips help walk you through the quilting process from start to finish! You'll even find links to video tutorials available through Quilt Addicts Anonymous for each featured quilt project, so you can watch and follow along visually.
