Dovetail Quilt with Meadow Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop

I just love love love the new Meadow Collection from Camelot fabrics!!! It is even more beautiful in person!!! I wanted a quilt pattern that would allow the fabrics to standout as the prints are just gorgeous! When I saw the free Dovetail pattern with Fat Quarter Shop- I knew it would be perfect!

The Dovetail pattern creates a generous lap size quilt of 57.5" x 70.5" quilt. The fabric is cut into 5"x10" squares or 5.5"x 10.5" it is perfect for those fabrics that you want to show off. Plus the larger sizes of fabric means it sews together quickly. Don't let the y-seam in the pattern make you shy away....there are only 15 of them....and the directions are super helpful if you are new with Y-seams. Plus Fat Quarter Shop made a video!

A bit more about my fabric choices:

I was so excited to find the perfect backing fabric in my stash. I have been saving this Brambleberry Ridge fabric for the perfect project and this was it!

Ready to make is what you need!
