Why Fat Quarter Kits Are No Waste And So Much More Fun

If You Buy Fat Quarters More Than You Use Them

If you have fat quarters that aren’t in pre-bundled form, it can be challenging to figure out how to choose the right combination of colors, values, and prints, and sew them into the beautiful quilt on the pattern cover. It isn’t always possible to get perfect combinations of fat quarters bought at different times, and then they just accumulate.



Sometimes, putting together fat quarters is kind of hit or miss, and then it’s facing the challenge of finding a quilt pattern to use. There is a charm to making a quilt from pre auditioned fabrics, and just sewing, getting it done, and loving it!
