Fabric Art Wall Hanging

If you have fat quarters you can’t bear to cut into small pieces, combine them with larger pieces to cover purchased stretched artist’s canvases. Black-and-white florals and prints, such as these from the Night and Day 2 collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics, make striking wall art.

Tulip Time Panel Quilt

Sew now, square up later. Odd angles and quirky centers make an offbeat wall hanging.

Free-Style Piecing Wall Hanging

For this quilt, break some rules by cutting odd angles and quirky centers. Use novelty prints and fussy-cut the desired motif for about half of the block centers. Add variety by using one of the novelty prints for the outer border, but in a different colorway.
