    favorite easy fat quarter pattern

    So I have a wonderful new Juki and I want to practice my FMQ skills. I also have a tiny sewing room and a ton of fabric including oodles of fat quarters. To kill 2 birds with one stone, I want to piece a few quick tops from my stash and use them to practice on and then donate them.

    I have a Turning Twenty pattern, and I will use that. I think I can also do a fast rail fence, but would love to hear about your favorites. I am looking for patterns that will use up FQ without needing too much other fabric (trying to bust the stash and not spend much this month).

    Thanks!
    Beth

    Atkinson Designs has a lot of FQ patterns. Lucky Stars is my favorite. Great background to do your FMQ in!

    Lucky Stars is one of my faves, too. It's easy, but a step up from Yellow Brick Road if you are still working on your piecing skills.

    "Cheaper by the Dozen" is a fast one with a nice look when it is done.
