Introducing Poppy + Simply Fat Quarters Giveaway!

Hey y'all! I have a new quilt and a pretty good giveaway to share, so let's get right to it!


Meet Poppy! The pattern for Poppy was designed by the super-lovely and talented owner of Fat Quarter Shop, Kimberly Jolly, and is featured in their new book release (under the It's Sew Emma designation) Simply Fat Quarters! I was pretty excited when Kim asked me to participate in this little tour for the new book and elected to make this lap-sized version of Poppy out of the new line from Denyse Schmidt - Chicopee. Chicopee has a lovely hand and I am absolutely in love with the bursts of raspberry and chartreuse in the prints.

Unfortunately, due to the rather windy conditions in Toronto caused by Hurricane Sandy, I was unable to get a picture of the back of the quilt. While taking the front ones the wind picked up some much that the quilt actually flew off of the fence and I had to chase it down. I figured it would be safer to just go with what I had and not risk losing the quilt all together.


I quilted Poppy using straight double lines on the diagonal and spaced them sort of unevenly where they cross so that the spaces for both larger and smaller squares and rectangles. Makes it kind of fun I think!


Simply Fat Quarters features 10 fat quarter friendly projects in a range of sizes. The pattern for Poppy comes in four sizes - Crib, Lap, Twin, and King - and includes great diagrams and step-by-step instructions. This is actually the first time that I've ever made a quilt using a pattern and I must say that it was a bit of a challenge for me not to go and change things and do them a bit differently! Not because of the pattern itself of course, that's just the way I am!


So I bet you want to know about the giveaway, eh? Well, there will be four prizes... yes, that's right, I said four! One very lucky winner will win a copy of Simply Fat Quarters along with a kit to make my version of Poppy - that's a heck of a lot of Chicopee! Another three winners will each win a copy of Simply Fat Quarters - not too shabby!

You have two chances but please be sure to leave separate comments for each entry. Here's what you've got to do:

1. Leave a comment letting my know your favourite way to use fat quarters.
If you have a link to a pattern/tutorial that would be great!
It doesn't have to be a quilt - I'm looking for some good gift ideas here!

2. Leave another comment if you are a follower of my blog.

That's it! Two easy-peasy ways to enter! I will close the comments in a week (November 12th) and announce the winner here on the blog. International entries are, as always, welcome! Also, please remember that I have comment moderation enabled so if you don't see your comment right away it just means that I haven't had the chance to approve it yet (duplicate comments will be deleted).

  1. My favorite gift/way to use fat quarters are pouches. Who doesn't need more bags? Jeni Baker has a great tutorial, and NoodleHead's wide mouth pouch are two of my favorites.

  3. I buy fat quarters to use for most of my quilting projects, in fact I look for patterns that call for them as it's an easy (and more affordable) way to get lots of different prints to play with! Would love a copy of this book and I adore your quilt! Thanks for the give away!

  7. hmmm, my fav use of FQs... Does leaving them out where I can gaze longingly at them and stroking them count? But wait, thats not a gift idea. How about fabric covered journals?

    ReplyDelete
  8. So far, my favorite way to use fat quarters is in Camille Roskelley's Swoon pattern. I'm making a king size with 16 blocks. That means 32 different fat quarters!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I've been making all different sizes of drawstring bags with FQs. Pattern is from Rachel at "InColorOrder." Thanks for the marvelous chance, and your quilt is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Your quilt is gorgeous!! I love using fat quarters. It's the perfect way to get a variety a fabrics that I love without having to buy big pieces. I use fat quarters for bags, quilts and little gifts. I keep every little piece of fabric and usually end up using it in many projects.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I like to make Rae Hoekstra's Buttercup Bag. It's cute, it's free, and the whole exterior and strap can be made with one fat quarter.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I seem to use a strip here and a strip there of my fat quarters so they end up showing up in lots of my quilts.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like to use fat quarters for little zipper and drawstring bags which I use as knitting project bags or gift bags. You have a beautiful quilt there!

  19. I love your blog, your quilts are all so beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is my current favorite way to use FQs - it's Ashley (FITF)'s rectangle squared quilt block and it is perfect for FQs. Very little waste and makes a great quilt.

  31. I use fat quarters in quilts mostly and love patterns that let me stack them up and cut them all the same way. To me, fat quarters are like fabric candy...just enough to get a good taste, but not so much that I feel stuffed.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am so in love with this quilt! I use FQs for so many things, but lately I have been using them when I applique baby onesies. I usually don't need a whole lot of fabric, so the small size is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have made several checkbook covers from this tutorial by Crazy Mom Quilts: http://crazymomquilts.blogspot.com/2008/09/gifts-to-create-for-christmas-08.html

    ReplyDelete
  41. I follow your blog and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I make lots of scrappy quilts so FQs work fine for that. And a single FQ might appear in several quilts, if the pieces aren't too big. I think quilts with lots of different fabrics are interesting to look at. Plus if you're giving them as gifts, lots of variety in colors and patterns means they will look good with most any decor.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I follow your blog. Love your quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like to make pouches with fat quarters ... or patchwork pillowcases.

  58. I like fatquarters because I usually have small projects, I love making potholders, for example apples, pumpkins, plums etc, all with stripes of different fabric, or small wallets and bags. Fatquarters are awesome because you don't have so much of the same yardage, just a good amount to make something out of it :)

  90. If Fat Quareters aren't going into a quilt, then they are probably going to be a pouch. Honestly - some of them are just there to look at, dream about, and lovingly touch occasionally. (I have a bit of a problem) Thanks for the chance to win - love your version of poppy!

  126. I love baby blankets, and my favorite block to use is "Contrary Wife." I'm sure it's got other names, but that one I adore.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I love to use FQᷰs for easy to sew quilts, like the four patch or nine patch that are cut twice (9 patch) or 4 times(4 patch). It is easy to make and the fabrics really stand out. You can those quilts in a lot less time than normal as you donᷰt need math to figure out all sizes. The fabrics stand out in these blocks and make the quilt. There are links on youtube from the Missouri Star quilt compagny to show how these easy cut methods are done. I also would love the book of Kimberly as most books are about jellyrols or charm packs but none about quilts made with FQ bundles. Love this new quilt you made! Great quilting too!

  134. When I'm in a hurry (Christmas quilts begun in November...) I like fat quarters for "stack and whack" type quilts. I've made some cute crazy quilt and log cabin types this way, and just bought a Buggy Barn book I'm excited to get started on.

  137. I like to use them for quilts. Ditto on the pouches. I love the Noodlehead pattern listed by the first poster.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Well this isn't exactly a hands on use, but I use fat quarters to try out entire fabric lines or colorways so I can decide what I want to buy more of.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I wish I could say I have a favorite way, but I don't usually repeat myself! I did enjoy the Turning 20 quilt I made and the Zen quilt (by Blue Underground Studios).

  140. I am also a follower of your blog, thank you so much for the giveaway, I love how your quilt turned out!

    ReplyDelete
  141. I wish I had a good answer for the use of FQ's. I was just digging through my pattern drawer looking for a good FQ pattern since I have a couple coordinated stacks I want to use up. My next stop is moda bake shop.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I buy fat quarter bundles when I really, really love a fabric line but don't have a project in mind for it.

    In terms of fun projects for Xmas...if you knit...there are fun patterns for knitted christmas lights on ravelry.com Some free, some inexpensive. Make one for an ornament gift, or make a string of them on an i-cord to wear or to hang up. I'm busy knitting instead of quilting at the moment...

    ReplyDelete
  143. I like to use Fat Quarters to make reversible scripture totes. It is about exactly enough to make a tote with 2 fat quarters and some fusible fleece!http://chocolateonmycranium.blogspot.com/2007/10/reversible-handbags.html#.UJhBwIYeVzY
    I also like to make baby bibs and burp rags with fat quarters. Baby stuff has to be cute, even though it's going to get messy!
