Default Pattern using 6 Fat Quarters???

I purchased a beautiful bundle of 6 coordinating fat quarters recently. Now I'm wondering what to do with them. It was the only such bundle at Tuesday Morning or I would have bought another. Any pattern recommendations or ideas? Many thanks!

If they are all light or dark values, Disappearing Hourglass is a good pattern for fat quarters.

Look at some of the Missouri Star tutorials. Your fat quarters could easily be cut to 5 or 10 inch squares which is mostly what Jenny uses.

Check out Turning 20 or Yellow Brick Road. They both use Fat 1/4's but you don't have to do the 20. I have done the Turning 20 pattern using 6,9 & 12 fat 1/4's & the quilts turned out fine. Add a border if you need it just a little larger.

Here's one that uses 6 FQ and I actually did it for my daughter.


Not sure if you want something bigger though. It is a large baby size or small lap size.

Cheaper by the Half Dozen quilt pattern uses 6 fat quarters. This makes a lovely baby/child's quilt.

There's a really neat tote bag pattern using exactly 6 fat quarters. I've made several of them, but I'm sorry, I can't remember the name of the pattern. Maybe someone else can remember it. I think it was designed by Whistle Stop Designs.

If you want to make something larger than a baby quilt, you will need to add to your collection.
