Flannel quilts are just the right weight to carry to an outdoor event or curl up with by the fireplace, making them the ultimate cover-ups for cool fall days. Designer Peggy Kotek sprinkled 25 pieced blocks—trees, stars, and bow ties—among assorted setting squares to make a generous-size throw.
Need a quick gift for Valentine’s Day? This time-saving quilt involves just five rows of multicolored rectangles that are finished by long sashing strips and a border from a single novelty print. The vintage-inspired prints from Love Notes by Faye Burgos for Marcus Fabrics are mixed with complementary fabrics.
Fashion and function combine in a rugged bag composed of fabrics from Floating Flowers collection by Kaffe Fassett for Westminster Fabrics, plus a complementary stripe. Pockets outside and in allow easy access to keys, phone, and other small items.
Make a gardenlike quilt using Nine-Patch blocks and 9-1/2” floral setting squares. Use a variety of fat quarters for a scrappy look or use fewer fabrics for a controlled look. We used fabrics from Full Bloom by Bari J for Windham Fabrics.
Start this in the morning, and by afternoon you’ll have a cloth tote for the farmer’s market or grocery store. For this spacious bag project maker Judy Sams Sohn chose eye-catching blue-and-white prints from Always & Forever collection by Alex Anderson for P&B Textiles.
