Today I have a free quilt pattern to show you! The Fat Quarter Shop has created this Fat Eighth Frenzy quilt pattern and asked if I would make a Fat Eighth Frenzy quilt using a bundle of Elementary (by Sweetwater for Moda). I love this line, but let’s be honest… I love pretty much everything that Sweetwater does.
This pattern is a fun, quick way to use those fat eighth bundles! Really – all you need is one fat eighth bundle (one with at least 30 F8 pieces) and a bit of yardage for the binding and backing. The quilt finished at 48” x 56” which is a great size to throw over the arm of a chair or the back of a sofa. If you need smaller or larger sizes, the pattern has them, from baby size to king!
The free pattern can be found here as a printable page. Click here to see a video tutorial for the pattern.
The Fat Eighth Frenzy pattern even comes with a free bonus project – which makes a cute half square triangle quilt that measures 34” x 41”. The video for the bonus project is here. I decided to use my leftover triangles in a little different way!
Here is my “bonus project” -
The center portion of the quilt is made using the leftover triangles from the Fat Eighth Frenzy quilt. I then added a 2” inner border and a 5” outer border to frame it up and I had myself two quilts from one F8 bundle. Nice! This quilt measures 47” x 48” and I think for now it will live here as a wall hanging.
It feels so good to use up leftover bits instead of throwing them away, doesn’t it?
Right now the Fat Quarter Shop is offering 20% off all of their Fat Eighth Bundles through Nov 2nd.
