Fabric Options Galore!
Not only does this quilt pattern come in sizes from Baby all the way to King size BUT I also included options for yardage, fat quarters or Jelly Roll. If you really have a scrap stash to bust - you could easily utilize the cutting instructions to make this a total scrap busting pattern!
Two Tone Quilt
See the two tone color-way I created from Bella Solids Graphite and Off White for the quilt top, the binding is Betty's Red and the backing fabric is Flurry in Peacock from Ruby Star Society. I love adding a pop of color with the binding on the monochromatic top!
Fat Quarter Friendly
Check out the fat quarter quilt I'll be making during the quilt along. This Prairie Meadow Fabric is from Brett Lewis of Northcott Fabrics - check out his website here and his instagram here. I've snagged 5 FQ and some of Northcott's Colorworks solid fabrics.
Jelly Roll Friendly
You can use yardage or fat quarters for this quilt, but I've even added the option of jelly roll into this. Whether you have a partial jelly roll remaining from another project or a new one that you've been collecting - now is the time to break it out :) Below is the quilt I created using the Stellar fabric junior jelly roll from Ruby Star Society.
