Each new fabric collection I design has a favorite sample or two. I think this Fat Quarter Shuffle quilt featuring Around the Bend might be one of them! Quilts are something I wish I had more time to sew, but I do try to thoroughly enjoy each moment when I do get to make one.
This design is by Alison Harris of Cluck Cluck Sew and it’s called the Fat Quarter Shuffle. It’s perfect for me in that there’s an element of surprise in the design – which I am always into. A planner of quilts I am not, I like to dive in and see what happens – and this design allows just that! As you can probably guess from the name you cut the fabrics and then shuffle them around. Endless possibilities and a super efficient use of fabrics.
I enjoyed making this twin size quilt! It’s always a bit intimidating for me to work on a bigger quilt project, but this was really a fun make so it felt like it went together in no time.
