    Blue Sky fabrics

    I bought the fat quarter bundle of Blue Sky fabrics. It's 22 fat quarters. Need pattern ideas. The only one I could come up with is the 10"Sawtooth Star that Edyta Sitar had on her blog.

    Turning 20 uses 20 fat quarters. Some people love " yellow brick road"
    there are tons of options. Browse Pinterest & look at ( quilts using precuts) there are thousands to inspire.
    i really like the village quilt shown on the same page as your fabrics that is made from them.

    I googled 'quilt projects for blue sky by edyta sitar' and checked images, there are several quilts pictured; the patterns are probably available on the laundry basket website. That's such a beautiful fabric line. I would have bought the bundle myself had my budget allowed. You could also check the other patterns on the laundry basket website; she has many interesting patterns available, in a range of difficulty.

    I was hoping someone would have an idea outside the box. Something different? Something, dare I say, New? Not just Edyta's patterns. Although I love her patterns.

    There are so many beautiful quilts out there. Would not be easy to just pick one.

    Friend of mine just used these fabrics and used the Villa Rosa pattern called Drayton Hall for a stunning quilt. It calls for fat quarters.

    You might find some here that you like. These are all fat quarter friendly patterns:

    "Old World Snowballs" from this page would look great in your fabrics.

    Try Pinterest for "Fat Quarter Quilt Patterns".

    They're beautiful! I'll be curious to see what you end up with. BTW, I almost never use a pattern but either make samplers or choose a block that I really love and make it in different fabrics from a FQ bundle.

    Love that FQ bundle...very pretty fabrics. Unfortunately I don't have any suggestions as I have been following QAL and mystery projects this summer...in an effort to use up some of my stash. I am working on a project that Sherri from A Quilting Life hosted and was able to use a layer cake and some scraps.

    If you can't decide you could always do a sampler. Nancy Zieman is doing a block of the month using fat quarters, or check out Pat Sloan's quilt along.

    It's lovely fabric, I'm sure what ever you decide will be wonderful!
