FatQuarterGANG_banner400pxBLUE
Hi! I'm Amy aka Sukie from Sukiedontyaknow.com. Wow. . can you believe it's been a whole year of the Art Gallery Fat Quarter Gang?!?!

Today, I'm showing you my last project for the gang and I'm really excited that it's a quilt! (that's my bread n' butter)

Title

Fabric Requirements:

9 Pure Elements Fat Quarters  (*you can get away with using fat eights but these solids are versatile in any project).

 The ones I used in the quilt are:

Art Gallery Stack
3 yards of Pure Elements Snow for background

Cuts (repeat 9x):

Each solid needs these cuts:

  • (2) 7 1/8 x 7 1/8
  • (4) 4 1/2 x 4 1/2
Background:
  • (2) 7 1/8 x 7 1/8
  • (4) 4 1/2 x 4 1/2
  • (1) 12 1/2 x 12 1/2
Block Construction steps:
  • Take (1) of the pure elements 7 1/8 x 7 1/8 with a Snow 7 1/8 x 7 1/8, right sides together and sew 1/4 around the block
  • Take a ruler and your rotary cutter and measure from one diagonal to the other and cut
  • Keeping the square together cut from one diagonal to the other
  • Repeat for the other 7 1/8 x 7 1/8 set
  • You should have the total of 8 hsts (half square triangles)
  • Iron the seams open

Trimming the HST (s):

  2. Take your rotary cutter and trim off the excess to 4 1/2
  3. Rotate and trim
  4. You should have a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2

Side row:
Side Row

4 1/2 x 4 1/2 HST + 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 Solid + 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 HST (Side Row)

Sew the side rows to the 12 1/2 x 12 1/2 block

Sew the top and the botton on to the block and you should have a block measuring 20 1/2 x 20 1/2

Repeat for the other 8 blocks and you should have a finished quilt top measure 60 x 60
