Grab a 12-pack – let’s make some fun fat-quarter quilts! (+ fabric giveaway!)

Got a dozen fat quarters? Got a dozen times that many fat quarters? Got fat-quarter bundles?

Whether you’re a collector, a connoisseur, or an unapologetic hoarder of those yummy fabric cuts, the new book 12-Pack Quilts is the perfect quilting companion for you!


Me and My Sister Designs12-fat-quarters—authors of the best-seller Simple Quilts from Me and My Sister Designs—are back to share their bright and happy style, along with their trademark easy color combos and super-quick patchwork.

But why 12-Pack Quilts? Because you can start every beautiful lap- to twin-sized quilt in the book with just 12 fat quarters—watch them fly together!

Sisters Barb and Mary include a special Q&A with Julie Karasek, a quilt-shop owner who’s a pro at bundling 12-packs for her customers (she’s bundled more than 5,000 fat-quarter 12-packs in the past few years!) In the book, Julie reveals her expert tips for avoiding rookie mistakes when choosing fat quarters for a project.

A special note for fat-quarter fanatics: these fun, easy quilts will eat up your fat quarters a dozen at a time so that you can make room for more. Use bundles or singles—choose 12 and off you go!

We’re thrilled to have Barbara Groves—one half of the fabulous sisters—back at Stitch This! as a guest writer. Tell us all about your latest book with Mary, Barb!

But first…

Barb and MaryWe are so excited that our newest book is now available. It’s called 12-Pack Quilts!

Mary and I have always loved making simple quilts with fabrics we love.

Although we love going to the local quilt show and seeing stunning, showstopping quilts, we always revert back to our simple style and designs.

I don’t know about you, but I love the hunt for fabric. That’s usually the best part of the project for me. And I love collecting fat quarters!

Wherever our busy teaching schedule takes us, we always find time to pick up a fat quarter or two as a souvenir. We also pick them up at our local quilt shops. If we can’t have the six yards we really want, we can at least have a fat quarter. Sometimes when a new fabric collection comes into a store, we pick up a few favorites for no reason at all.

From 12-Pack Quilts

The beauty of using fat quarters is that you can mix and match them. Anyone can put together 12 fat quarters!

Some of the quilts in this book are scrappy and will shrink your stash:

Heart’s Desire

Some focus on a single fabric collection:

Buzz Cut

And other projects use a combination of both:

The Village

The projects in 12-Pack Quilts are all easy to make and designed for confident beginners and beyond.

So if you’re looking for that next project and you love collecting fat quarters, this book is written for you! Happy quilting!

12-Pack-QuiltsThanks for sharing your new book with us, sisters!

So, what kind of power do fat quarters have over you?

a) I like them, but I can walk away if I don’t need them for a specific project.
b) I swear I hear them calling my name as I walk by.
c) All the power—they’re all in my stash!
