AGF Fat Quarter Gang Tutorial and a Giveaway!

Amy FriendArt Gallery Fabrics Fat Quarter Gang, giveaway, quilting, tutorial190 Comments

I can’t believe that it is already time for my second tutorial for Art Gallery Fabrics!  This time I chose to make a baby quilt using 8 fat quarters from the LillyBelle collection by Bari J in the Warm Sunset Colorway, along with two Pure Elements Solids (white linen and spiceberry).

This quilt uses a traditional block called the Indian Hatchet Album block, in recent years referred to as a Siggie Block.  In the absence of signatures and some careful planning of the fabric layout, the blocks appear to be bows.  So I am calling this layout Baby Bows.  I heavily quilted the negative space so let the bows pop.
You can download the pdf pattern for this quilt from the AGF blog today.  There are templates included as well as foundation piecing patterns so you can choose your method of construction.  I normally opt for paper piecing but I made this quilt with templates to make sure it was doable-and it was!
If you’d like to win the 8 fat quarters used in this quilt, please leave me a comment.  Maybe you could tell me which fabric collection debuted by AGF at quilt market is your favorite!  I will draw a winner on November 12th.
