Queen Quilt Fat Quarter Cut-Up Quilt Tutorial

Alison Newman of developed an excellent tutorial demonstrating an easy way to create a queen size quilt. The Fat Quarters, which were cut for the blocks, make it look like you've been saving scraps for years. Additionally, a machine-stitched binding keeps the time requirement pretty darn low, especially considering you'll be able to show off a quilt that fits your entire bed.

what you need:

  • Any Sewing Machine (Alison recommends the Janome Horizon)
  • ¼" Seam foot (optional)
  • 18 Fat Quarters (If you choose not to use a Fat Quarter Bundle, you'll need to cut eighteen pieces that measure 18" x 22"): we used Joanna Figueroa's Fresh Cottons Fat Quarter Bundle by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics
  • 5½ yards of a 44-45" wide coordinating solid fabric for sashing strips and backing: we used Moda's Bella Solids in Natural
  • 3 yards of a second 44-45" wide coordinating solid fabric for sashing strips and binding: we used Moda's Bella Solids in Ivory
  • Queen size quilt batting: we used Warm & Natural's Queen Size Cut
  • All purpose thread to match fabrics
  • Quilting thread to match the coordinating solids: we used Natural in the top and Ivory in the bobbin
  • Lots of large safety pins for basting quilt (Fabric stores have special pins just for quilt basting, which you may choose as well)
  • See-through ruler
  • Iron and ironing board
  • Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
  • Fabric pen or pencil
  • Straight pins
  • Tape measure
