Three Quilts One Bundle!

Gosh I love deals, especially fabric deals! So much that sometimes I buy too much, way, way too much! When I jumped back into quilting a few years ago I bought an inappropriate amount of fabric; it's normal to buy a couple hundred yards of fabric in a year right?? Right....  I have seriously curtailed my fabric intake this year. The neatly folded fabric has spilled off my shelves into piles on the floor which is not neat at all! In an effort to make a little room I decided to devour a fat eighth bundle of Chez Moi Coquette I bought from the Fat Quarter Shop which has had a birthday or two here. In case you are wondering you can make at least three baby quilts from a single fat eighth bundle!  Here is my first finish

After my recently finished postage stamp quilt with a gazillion tiny squares, a few angles were necessary to keep me straight! This is my first triangle quilt finish. I've dabbled in triangles before with my triangle pillow but this was the first usable quilt with nothing but triangles.

I'm constantly admiring them and I quickly realized how tricky the triangle points can be. By the time I finished this quilt I decided that pressing all seams open was the best way to save them. I did have a couple of 'point casualties' but there is always a couple!

For the quilting I decided on light pink 50wt Auriful thread following each seam. I really love this design partly because it creates stars all over the front and back

Pretty, pretty, pretty! This crib quilt measures 36x42. I was also able to create a triangle baby quilt and a herringbone quilt that hasn't quite taken form yet from this fat eighth bundle! Who knew so much fabric was stuffed into those neatly folded bundles?!

  1. Your quilt is very pretty. Triangle quilts are always amazing.

  2. I love the colors! And that's amazing that you can get so many quilts out of a fat eighth bundle! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the quilts. :)

  3. I agree it's nice to switch from one style to the next for variety. Nice color picks within, and nice finish!

  4. Oh, such a pretty quilt for a baby! And thanks for sharing how much you can get out of a Fat Eighth bundle. That is very useful information.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous! I can totally relate to what you say about buying up so much fabric - it is hard to pass up a good deal! And at least it means we have a good supply to choose from when inspiration strikes! I live a 30 minute drive from my nearest quilting shops, so find it hard to pass up offers online!

  6. Who knew you could get three quilts from a fat eigth bundle, I didn't. Love your sweet triangle quilt.

  7. Such a pretty quilt. Visiting from FIUF.

  8. That is such a pretty little quilt!

  9. What a cheerful little quilt! A triangle quilt is still on my to sew list. Maybe for the next that's a thought. :)

    Found you on show and tell tuesday.


  10. Hi Heather! This is so cute and beautiful! I had a charm pack of these Fabrics and they are now in the quilt: 'Hanna's Garden'. x Teje
