    I recommend Eleanor Burns Quick Trip Quilts book. The Quick Quarter pattern uses all fat quarters. Bigger quilts use more fat quarters. I did a queen that used 28 fat quarters + fabric for the borders. I love that pattern and have made several more in smaller sizes.

    There are so many FQ books - Hawley, Karen Snyder, etc. Try going to your local library to see what they on the shelves.

    You all wound up helping me too. I have to make 2 quilts, quickly. Thought I would do the d9p for one and now I'm thinking Yellow Brick Road for the other. Have fqs so I'm ready to go Thanks for all the suggestions to me also.

    It's my favorite for quick & easy, but I also am starting to like the stuff over at the Moda Bake Shop. I'm not sure how to search for just the FQ patterns (does anyone else know how?) but there are dozens of really good ones here!

    I hear you ! God knows how many I have, oh well, too late now. I do love them even though I don't know what I'll be doing with them yet.

    I have quite a few fat quarter books by M'Liss Rae Hawley that just need 7 or 8 fat quarters, border fabric and sometime background fabric. She has some awesome quilts.

    It is a good one!

    Almost all my stash is made up of Fat Quarters. I buy big pieces for the back and 1 1/4 pieces for borders. If I want the sashing all the same I might need more for that. I devide the stack up into light and darks and then color groups and do pretty much any pattern. The first quilt has additonal sashing and border fabrics of the same fabric as my dauhgter in law was not as comfortable with all scrappy quilts. This along with the setting triangles being all the same colors gave it enough uniformity for her.

    I suggest you go to the Kansas Troubles website for ideas. I'm a huge KT fan...just picked up the new for Fall charm squares packet Harvest Moon. I'm anxious to turn it into a table runner if anyone has any suggestions for a pattern.

    I love her books, too! Both her FQ books & her others, too. Attached is a little redwork quilt I made from her 1st FQ book. I can't help it... I love this little quilt!

    I can see Kansas troubles making a great nine patch too.
    Personally? I can see "Kansas Troubles" being GORGEOUS in just about any pattern! And you can NEVER go wrong with a 9-Patch. Another suggestion would be one I want to make (in Civil War repos) called "Chunky Churndash" from Quiltville. Here's a pixture of it (from the blog) & a link to the pattern. Whatever you make, please make sure you post it! Inquiring minds...

    I personally buy them for (my all-time favorite) 9-Patches. OK... I really buy them because I love them, but I like to use them for 9-Patches. Lof Cabins sound like a good idea, too!

    Do you per chance have pictures? Oh, I hope so! All my YBRs look different, too... that's one reason I like it so much. It is so versatile!

    It's both. Here's a link to the pattern & a picture of it, too. Think of how fabulous it (or Kansas Digout!) would look done in Kansas Troubles fabric!
