    Fat Quarter Patterns

    I need help. I have over 85 fat quarters and half of them are Kansas Troubles. I need a nice pattern to use some of them up. Do you have a favorite fat quarter pattern?

    I found a site where all of the patterns (24, I think) are using fat quarters. This is the 3rd one in. I had to look at a picture of the fabric -- and it is Christmasy, right. This pattern looks good for that.

    Try the Pincushion Boutique. They carry patterns by Pressed for Time which specialize in using fat quarters. I have several of their patterns and love them all.

    Thanks for showing this site. I see lots of patterns that I like. I have way too many fat quarters, and I'd better get using them!

    I have made a lot of quilts from M'Liss Rae Hawley's 2 books: Fat Quarter Quilts & More Fat Quarter Quilts. Her instructions are really good and my favorite part is that she gives pressing directions.

    Here are several free fq patterns. Some are small quilts but just by making more blocks could make a large quilt. I accidentally started this on page 2 of 24 so just click "Previous" and you will see the first option.

    I like Fat Friday. Once you make your quilt, all of your leftover pieces make a small Candy Bar quilt. It's a great pattern and one of my favorite FQ quilts, not to mention its quick to put together.

    I love the patterns from Anka's Treasures. Her patterns are easy to follow and are so fun. I have several of her books. Fat Quarter 5 is one of my favorites. I've made 3 of the 5 quilts from that one so far, but many of her patterns work from fqs.

    Nearly anything by Terry Atkinson works well with fat quarters.
    Who needs therapy? I quilt!

    Had to chuckle when I read this post.........I know that I have lots of fat quarters..........sooooo I went and counted what I had (all in a special area) and came up with 1085. Most of them are one of a kind........not many duplicates. Now, what am I going to do with all of them? Don't know, maybe I'll just treat them like art...and enjoy looking at them.

    If my memory serves me there is a pattern called "seeds of time". That is a freebie on the net, it used Kansas troubles is I think it is maybe a log caching type pattern.

    I also think that Kansas troubles would be great in courthouse steps and fatquarters would work great.
    I can see Kansas troubles making a great nine patch too.

    my favorite fat quarter quilt is "Yellow Brick Road" each one looks so different, unless you are familiar with the patter you don't recognize it, and there is the "Turning Twenty"

    There are numerous FQ patterns out there and I have the following books that I really like. Good luck.
