    Fat 1/8 pattern suggestions wanted

    I have gorgeous Ruby pack that I need suggestions for a pattern for. Lots of layer cake and jelly roll patterns out there , but can't seem to find fat 1/8 specific ones. Thanks.

    There's one in the current issue of "Quilts and More". It's called "3 in a Row". I've started it with leftover scraps from another quilt I made.

    A fat-eighth is APPROX. 4.5" x 21-22". Here is a quilt I made from a Moda fat eighths collection several years ago.

    If you were asking about my quilt, the pattern was one I designed myself; I rarely make quilts from bought patterns. If you look closely, you'll see that the quilt consists of two blocks....a 4-patch and a half-square triangle. Just the backgrounds are different.

    Oops, sorry! I thought you were talking to Jan!!! This quilt was on the front cover of the American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine Feb 2012 issue. It is called "Merry Go Round" The quilt in the magazine was made with 1930's prints and when I saw it, I just knew I had to make it out of the Ruby Collection by Moda. The pattern was for a 86 1/2" X 100 1/2" quilt but I just pared it down to make a baby size quilt. I used only 9 blocks and eliminated the outside border.
