Hi everyone.  I was given 24 fat quarters from a friend for Christmas.  These are very colorful, very different but very patterned fat quarters.  I would like to make them into a quilt.  Does anyone have any ideas of a pattern to use these?

Join the FREE Craftsy Block of the Month class and use a two different fat quarters each month.  Learn new techniques and end up with a cute scrappy quilt when we're done.

I could give you better advice if you posted a pic of your fqs.  I really am not good at giving pattern advice without seeing the fabric.

A picture of your FQs would really help. Having said that, Easy Quilts has had a few patterns for FQs you might want to take a look at their back issues and see what you can find.

Definately turning twenty there is a different look every time with this pattern. Have had 4 quilts cut since Aug for this pattern and I know they will be beautiful. I have made this one probably 10 times, myself. It is easy but looks fantastic every time. Good Luck if you like the fabric u will like the quilt.

Nancy had a good suggestion about the Craftsy.com BOM. Several of us here on QCA are taking that online class and it's a great way to use up fat quarters. But it does cost money, not free. 

Log Cabins are always a great way to use a variety of fabric colors and patterns, as long as you have darks and lights.

The craftsy.com BOM is free.  Even if you don't use it now, sign up so you can do it later.

I didn't think about the Turning Twenty patterns.  I have made several of these and they make really pretty quilts.

The BQ patterns would work well with fat quarters of big prints.  Then you can use two other fabrics (light and dark) with them to coordinate it all together.

Big Block Throw is about 54" square and uses four different fat quarters.

On utube the Missouri quilt company shows some cool patterns for fat quarters or 5 in squares. I did some of these at Christmas. They look very cool.
