  9. Give a cheer for fat quarters – new book from Moda All-Stars!

    If you have a few fat quarters in your stash, we have a dozen fresh ways for you to incorporate them into your sewing game. Two, Four, Six, Eight: Fat-Quarter Quilts You’ll Appreciate, the latest book from the Moda All-Star designers, is just the ticket for using this popular precut. Today, Lissa Alexander of Moda Lissa fame is here to tell us how it’s done. Rah, rah, sis-boom-bah!


    Give a shout!

    Give a cheer!

    Grab fat quarters!

    Use ‘em here!

    Just when you thought your fabric stash was big enough, you find yourself picking up a few more fat quarters (FQs) that you just can’t live without. These 18″ x 21″ pieces of fabric seem to call out from quilt-shop shelves: Pick me! Take me home! You don’t have one just like me.

    Yep, we’ve all been there. But sometimes you need just the right pattern to put those FQs to work once they’ve been “on the bench” in your stash for a while. Two, Four, Six, Eight: Fat-Quarter Quilts You’ll Appreciate to the rescue! In the book, you’ll find a dozen new patterns you can use to turn those folded FQs into something super fabulous. Whether you have 2 FQs or 32 FQs, there’s a pattern from a Moda All-Star designer that’s bound to be a game changer.


    In addition to the project instructions, you’ll learn fun facts about each of the 12 designers. (We’ve assigned each of them to captain a team.) Can you guess who was named the leader of the Half-Square-Triangle Squad? Or which designer was appointed captain of the Speedy Sewing Squad? And if you’re flying through FQs, use Brenda Riddle’s shopping strategy and add three to six FQs to your stash at a time.

    In keeping with our motto of doing good with the Moda All-Stars series of books, royalties for this book will be donated to Special Olympics, an international organization that changes lives by promoting understanding, acceptance, and inclusion between people with and without intellectual disabilities. Through sports, Special Olympics athletes are seeing themselves for their abilities, not disabilities. That’s something we can all cheer for!

    ∼ Lissa Alexander


    Hey, hey, FQ-friendly quilts for the win! Thanks for getting us all fired up and ready to stitch, Lissa.

    View more winning projects here—Two, Four, Six, Eight: Fat-Quarter Quilts You’ll Appreciate—then shout it out in the comments: which project will be first to get VIP (Very Important Project) treatment on your to-make list?
