Five Fat Quarter Fun is a beautiful model that looks simple but very beautiful. If we think like experienced people in bedspreads, blankets, flaps at the time of creating our work this pattern here we will take it to heart. Well this one in particular is not our work of creation, but for sure it is wonderful and has its great placement inside ours, be it for the bedroom, living room, dad’s chair or even to enjoy a night full of stars with the person we love. So, shall we go to the article?
Five Fat Quarter Fun – Preppy Quilt Pattern
This pattern was created by Andy Knowlton and you can have more details of her work here on her website.
This month I was invited to be a part of the Five Fat Quarter Fun series with Amber & Amanda (Gigi’s Thimble & Jedi Craft Girl). Boy, I tell you – it was a fun challenge to design a quilt using only five fat quarters plus a little yardage. I went through a few different options but quickly settled on this Argyle inspired quilt, called Preppy!
This is one of those quilts that looks more complicated than it actually is! And for those of you who haven’t tried making a quilt on point before this would be a great time to try it!
Preppy finishes at 50″ x 60″, and uses 5 fat quarters and some yardage for the sashing and background.
I love these Gingham Girls prints (designed by Amy Smart for Penny Rose Fabrics) and I’ve been looking for just the right project to use them in. They were the perfect choice for this Preppy quilt. And I added in the navy swiss dot (from Riley Blake) as well.
The quilting is a design called Diagonal Plaid which I thought worked great with all of the other diagonal lines in the quilt, and it also added some great texture!
If you make a Preppy quilt I’d love to see it! Be sure to tag me (@abrightcorner) as well as Amber and Amanda (@gigisthimble @jedicraftgirl) and use the hashtags #preppyquilt and #fivefatquarterfun so we’ll be sure to see it! SEE ALSO: Quilt Bejeweled Free Pattern

Wonderful, isn’t it? The colors are so well assembled and beautiful when sewing the fabrics between you that it comes to look like a painting, or a drawing! Congratulations on this project’s publishers. And did you like it?
