We had a brown bag challenge where we put 5 fat quarters in a brown bag and exchanged them. We had a couple of months to make something out of the fat quarters. We could add two additional fabrics – any amount and were supposed to use at least some of each of the fat quarters.
I received 5 fat quarters that were from Lakehouse a few years ago. They were bright pink, lime green and black. I looked at them for long time before I decided to make a set of placemats. Since the pattern I used called for 4 fat quarters on the front, I bought a backing and then added a strip of the 5th fat quarter to each one so the backs are different but made from the same fabrics.
The back was a lime green polka dot with a strip of another green stripe. Turns out that the fat quarters belonged to Rebecca. I hope she likes her placemats.
I put some Amy Butler fat quarters in my paper bag and was lucky enough to have it given to Pam. She actually made me a quilt!
Great big Hexies! I love it! I really like how she put the border on two sides and let the hexies float off the edge of the quilt. Also she added a little extra print fabric into the binding.
