This title features 50 quick, easy ideas for upcycling fat quarters into a variety of pretty patchwork goodies. Cute and diverse, projects include toys, homeware, clothing and gifts. It comes from prolific author Amanda Carestio. What's a fat quarter? A lovely 18 X 22 inch bit of fabric that's often just languishing in a stitcher's stash. But with this creative collection, those bits of material can be transformed into a variety of wonderful things. Take one fat quarter and you can make a bowl cover or fabric flower. Take two coordinating quarters and you've got a boho bag or patchwork frame. You'll be amazed at how far they can go - and when you've finished making these baskets, blankets, quilts and curtains, you may even need to buy more!
