Issue 9: Scattered Straws

Linus Quilt Sneak Peek

Issue 9 has started arriving in our subscribers’ inboxes! In this issue, our kids & teens issue, you’ll find wonderful sewing and quilting projects that you can complete both for — and with — the children in your lives. The quilt shown above, Scattered Straws, is one great example

of a more teen-focused project. Scattered Straws was designed and made by Jane Davidson (aka Quiltjane to her blog readers and Twitter followers!) Jane lovingly donated this quilt to Project Linus, which we cover extensively in this issue.

Subscribers, if you don’t receive your issue in the next 24-48 hours, please let us know via (though you might want to check your spam folders first!) Single issues for non-subscribers will be available for purchase by the end of the week.

Issue 9: The Home Stretch

The Home Stretch

Here’s another brand new, original quilt pattern that you’ll only find in issue 9 of Fat Quarterly — our kids & teens issue! This fun project is called The Home Stretch and was designed by our very own Tacha Bruecher. It’s a fabulous and versatile pattern that is perfect for both boys and girls, and would be equally stunning with a dark background as it is with a white one. What fabrics would you use to make yours?

Issue 9 of Fat Quarterly is being sent to our subscribers as we speak, and will be available for single issue purchase later this week. We can’t wait to hear what you think about it!

Issue 9, our Kids & Teens issue, is here!

After what seems like the shortest duration between issues, we’re pleased to release our 9th issue this week. This time, we’ve turned our focus to one of our very favorite subjects: kids! Issue 9 is all about sewing both for and with the children in our lives,

and is chock full of all-new original sewing patterns and projects, features and articles (including an extensive look at ideas for Project Linus quilts), book reviews, our Designer’s Challenge, and much more from the talented members of the Fat Quarterly community.

Springtime Hues

The above is a sneak peek at Springtime Hues, a quilt pattern by Elizabeth Dackson of Don’t Call Me Betsy and featuring the Modern Whimsy line by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman fabrics. We’ll be bringing more sneak peeks throughout the week.
