Fast Track Quilt Ideas + Quilt Along

 Hey everyone! Just wanted to share a quick reminder that the Fast Track quilt along starts on Monday!

I've been having fun this week mocking up the Fast Track quilt pattern in a bunch of different fabrics and thought you'd like to see some of them!

First of all, here's a peek at what I'll be sewing with for the quilt along: 

Ombre Fairy Dust fabric bundle from Moda Fabrics found on A Bright Corner - you have to see what she's making with it!

This is a bundle of Ombre Fairy Dust (by Vanessa Christensen for Moda Fabrics)* and I've been debating on whether to use the black print or the white one for the contrasting print. I mocked up both versions - which one do you like better?

At first I really loved the white, but the black is so striking!  

(The black print is Ombre Fairy Dust Metallic Soft Black and the white print is Ombre Fairy Dust Metallic Off White ).

Faded scrappy beachy version of the Fast Track quilt pattern by Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner - love this scrappy look

How about a faded beachy version? I love this scrappy look! These are all different light blues and light reds from a variety of Riley Blake fabric lines, paired with a solid white. I love this one - and really want to make one this Summer.


Patriotic version of the Fast Track quilt pattern by Andy Knowlton of A Bright Corner - perfect pattern for using jelly roll strips

How about a bolder red, white, & blue version? This patriotic Fast Track is mocked up with American Gathering (by Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics)


Scrappy low volume version of Fast Track quilt pattern by Andy of A Bright Corner

Here's another scrappy version, with low volume prints and a fun Riley Blake polka dot for the contrasting rectangles. 



Fast Track quilt pattern by Andy Knowlton - in Golden Hour fabrics by Ruby Star Society

This final one is a version that I plan on making, and I even already have the bundle and background fabric ready to go. This quilt uses a line called Golden Hour (Ruby Star Society) and Moda Bella 97

It's so fun to see how the look of the quilt changes with different fabrics!  Which one is your favorite? 

And here's one more that I've finished but haven't yet shared here on my blog:

Fast Track quilt pattern by Andy of A Bright Corner - super quick quilt pattern great for using fat quarters or precut fabric

This one was made with a fun bundle that I put together with Maker Valley. The bundles have sold out, but Holly always has a fabulous and unique selection of custom bundles for sale on her site.

  4. This is great. Thinking it would be fun for charity quilts using scraps but keeping the short piece one color all the way through. Thank you for sharing.
