I collected fat quarters all year to make a quilt for my niece, Darrah. I started with green which is her favorite color. I went to a lot of quilt stores I had never been in, which was fun. As Christmas neared, I chose to go with an 8" square and layed them all out. I really had no idea if it would work. I pieced several blocks just because I couldn't stand just plain 8" blocks. After changing the layout several times, I put them together. I made two of these, one for another neice in orange and they were the first quilts I sent to a long arm quilter. It was worth it and she did a great job. I loved making these quilts and plan to do it again this year for two more nieces or nephews. It was fun to collect the fat quarters all year and then put them together.
