Have you seen those cute bundles of fat eighth fabrics and wondered what you could make with them?

This is a fun quilt pattern that is perfect for them!

Don’t have a fat eighth bundle? You could also substitute a fat quarter bundle or use quilt fabrics you have in your stash.

The finished size of this quilt is 48½” x 56½”

Would you prefer to make a different size quilt? The free quilt pattern includes a crib quilt, lap quilt (that is what I made), twin, queen, and king.

The pattern uses an equal amount of dark and light fabrics but you could also substitute one fabric for all of the light fabrics.

Fat Eighth Frenzy uses very large blocks….which means it is fast and easy to make!

You don’t need any special rulers or tools. This cute quilt is a free pattern (keep reading) from Fat Quarter Shop and you’ll want to read the Fat Eighth Frenzy blog post so you can see quilts in different fabrics.

You’ll want to make sure you save the leftover triangles you’ll have after piecing the blocks as you can use them to make another bonus quilt that is included in the free pattern.

Wouldn’t it be fun to end up with two quilts using the same fabrics!

Can you guess what fabric line this is?

You can see the bonus quilt below.

This quilt is actually made from the leftovers of the first quilt……what a bargain! Doesn’t it look neat down by the river!

They are both fast and easy to make and would make great gifts!

If you enjoy videos then you definitely want to watch Kimberly as her videos are always clear and easy to follow.

I used a fat eighth bundle called Miss Kate by Bonnie & Camille. You may not be able to find the Miss Kate bundle but here you can see what collections are available right now from Bonnie & Camille.

I even had enough of the fabrics leftover to make this little makeup pouch.

  1. Thank you, thank you Connie for sending this one along! I have been searching for a pattern to use for a service project group I belong to. We meed monthly. I don’t have lots of free time to sew and need to get two tops done int he next two weeks. You have give me the means to do that. I like to use bright colors and some juvenile fabrics but it is important to us that these quilts are special and just as happy as an item one would gift to friend or family. This will be a hit for sure. Thanks again!

    I love this design because it can be made from colourful stash scraps. I have a huge pile, and it doesn’t matter how they are placed, it’s a vibrant quilt and a beginner’s delight.
    Thanks, Connie. Wonderful locations for the display photos.

    Thanks for the Fat Eighth Frenzy. Looks like the perfect project for the fabric I just inherited from a friend. Which reminds me that maybe I should also make arrangements for my beloved fabric treasures before my kids do something unthinkable.

    1. I had to make 5 baby quilts at the same time this year – I like the idea of a two for one!
      I remember the fabric, I made a small quilt for a friend using Fig Tree fabric – is that this? Thanks

  4. Those are both really cute quilts Connie! It looks like the link attached to Free Pattern has an error in it. If you click on it you get "Not Found – Error 404". I was able to find it, but thought you might want to correct it.

    1. Hmm, the link worked for me Tami, it is about half way down the page on the right.

  5. Thanks for the great idea, beautiful example and the link!
    I always look forward to your blog posts.

  6. Lovely quilts. I like your version so much better than the one in the video. I had decided it was not a keeper pattern until I saw yours! Miss Kate's colors lend so well to the pattern.

  7. Cute quilts! So cheerful in those fabrics. On another note, I've been wondering lately about Peli. What's the latest? Still bringing him fish?

    I KNEW i'd like them!! THanks for the links…just might be the pattern I was looking for get my daughter started on her second quilt. The first was an eye spy of 4 inch blocks…learning the 1/4" seam and nesting rows. Now…onto bigger and better patterns…THIS might be it! 🙂
