    Lightbulb Fat quarter - suggestions please

    I am not usually a fat quarter person. (I do mostly JR or layer cakes) I have googled images with fat quarter patterns. Honestly, I am just lost.

    I found this awesome (IMO) fat quarter bundle, would be perfect for my brother who is a baseball fanatic. It has 15 fat quarters. But I would love some ideas, pattern names for fat quarters. I have searched for the twenty..something, I don't remember the name. But I can't see the patterns inside the books.

    I really don't mind stepping out of my comfort zone with fabric purchase, And I am willing to buy a pattern or a book, but insight.....much needed.

    Thank you!

    Have a look at Yellow Brick Road pattern . Me and My Sister have a book called "12 Pack Quilts".

    Turning Twenty is another good one to use with fat quarters.

    Turning twenty and yellow brick road are both good patterns for fat quarters.

    I was also going to suggest yellow brick road. I see others have. This quilt goes together very quickly!

    You can us FQs for almost any pattern you want to make. You'll just have to cut them into the sizes you'll need for your pattern. I've used them for many patterns: Rail Fence, 3 Dudes, Summer in the Park, Disappearing 9-Patch, 4-Patch, etc. Cutting 2.5 strips the long way of the piece will give you strips for many patterns. I've even pieced them into binding strips. I've also made several "Turning Twenty...Again" quilts. Check out the Turning Twenty web site. Tricia has at least 10 pattern books available. Those were my beginner's quilts.

    Fat Friday is a very easy one to do with little waste. I've done 3 using this pattern. It works well with large scale prints, and there are more big pieces to each block than small pieces. I've done one with 20 fat quarters (4 blocks across 5 rows down) and 12 fat quarters ( 3 blocks across, 4 down). The blocks measure 16" finished Click image for larger version.
