I don’t normally choose such bright fabrics unless I know the person receiving the quilt is fond of those, but I just had to do this one in brights to see how it would turn out! Most of these are Laurel Burch fabrics, and I used a simple strip piecing pattern I found here: Strip Tango Baby Quilt, which is fast becoming a favourite. I plan to make another with some variations in strip width, and maybe even some patching within some of the strips to make it more interesting. It goes together quickly and uses exactly 9 fat quarters for this size which makes shopping easy – we all know I don’t have a stash of fat quarters anywhere, so I had to actually go to the store and pick these out.
I did have a picture of all my fabrics lined up together before I started, and I planned to post it here, but somewhere along the way it has disappeared.
I tried all sorts of funky stitching on this one.
So if you’re looking for a way to use up some of your fat quarter stash this is a fun one to do!

I like the bright colours and that the variety in quilting patterns matches the variety of the fabric. Very nice!
