Turn precuts into patchwork with 12 fat-quarter friendly quilts
Go ahead...buy that bundle or finally untie that stack of fat quarters already in your stash. Australian fabric and pattern designer, Emma Jean Jansen, inspires you to create 12 quilts designed to showcase everyone's favorite pre-cut.
Emma demonstrates quick piecing methods, raw-edge appliqué and freezer paper foundation piecing to achieve stylish, modern quilts. The inspiring patchwork projects are photographed in Emma's native Australia, and range from the bold and geometric to the elaborate- but all projects focus on how to use beautiful bundles of fat quarters whether they're from a single fabric collection or a custom shop collection of many fabric lines.
With Emma's guidance you'll learn how to cut your fat quarters to maximize usable fabric. She also shares her tips on how to combine these popular pre-cuts with crisp solids to achieve balanced contrast. Photographed within sweeping Australian vistas, the quilts are so refreshing that you'll want to sew all 12 of them.
No longer will you simply buy and stash fat quarters - you'll be able to use these bundles to create stunning, contemporary quilts.
