We’re thrilled to welcome Amanda of Amanda Murphy Design as a contributor to Fat Quarterly Issue 6. Her latest line of fabric, Veranda, with Robert Kaufman (shipping August) is bright, elegant and perfect for Summer. Just look how those fresh pinks, aquas and green pop next to the white background.

Not only has she designed a pattern for the stunning Virginia Reel quilt pictured below (in issue 6 of Fat Quarterly, available for purchase 6/27), Amanda has also designed this delightful pillow which is available as a bonus pattern, with our compliments, to everyone. You can locate the PDF for download by clicking HERE.

And that’s not all, folks! Head on over to Amanda’s blog where she’s giving you the chance to win a VERY special prize!

Don’t forget: if you make a Virginia Reel quilt or pillow we’d love to see! You can share your projects in our Flickr group.
