Year of the Fat Quarter with Fat Quarter Shop plus Giveaway!

 Happy February! Have you heard Fat Quarter Shop has named 2018- The Year of the Fat Quarter. I LOVE it! February is all about PINK!!! I just love pink and was so excited when I opened up my Fat Quarter package. It is such a fabulous bundle of fabric!

I thought a scrappy quilt would be perfect for these lovely pinks. The Trifles pattern from It's Sew Emma is perfect! The pattern shows off the fabrics so well plus it is quick to sew! It is perfect for a beginner quilter as there are no real seams to match.

Supplies to make your own Pink Trifles Quilt.

1. Fat Quarter Shop- Year of the Fat Quarter- Pink (February)
2. It's Sew Emma- Trifles Pattern
3. Moda Bella White for background
4. Backing fabric: Wyndham Maribel - it is on sale too!
5. Aurifil thread

Zoom in on the backing fabric! I love it!

Do you love scrappy binding??? I do! I cut multiple 2.5" strips from my bundle to create the scrappy  Plus it looks so cute on Binding Babies.

Who else is excited about Year of the Fat Quarter? It is my favorite pre-cut size as it is so versatile! Plus they look all cute stacked and folded!

Finished quilts also look cute stacked....

And folded....with a peek of the backing :)
