Color Weave – Made from Precut Strips or FQ’s

The original version of this was made using one strip roll of my Abstract Garden fabric plus background grays from my Fandangle line.
The Color Weave quilt pattern was so popular that I recently reprinted it and added bonus cutting instructions using fat quarters. Now I want to remake it using Geo Pop fat quarters:
Can you sense a theme here? I really do love working with precuts because it get to use lots of colorful prints in my quilts!
Squiggles – Made from Charm Packs & Background

This pattern is from my book, Piece and Quilt with Precuts. I had written and published the book before I started designing fabric. But once my first line, Modern Marks came out, I wanted to remake many of my earlier designs in my own fabric! Many of these fabrics are now out of print but I stocked up on the charm packs because I knew they’d be a hot commodity!!

This is another quilt I loved so much that I had to make it twice! I was thrilled that I got to showcase the Abstract Garden version of the quilt at QuiltCon 2019 and of course it’s always a great pic when I can match my outfit to my quilt!!
I made the first version from Modern Marks and as you can see the colors are very similar. I actually used the same blue background fabric for both (Modern Marks Herringbone Navy) but due to the lighting it can look very different!
Dot N Dash Quilt – From Piece and Quilt with Precuts

This is another quilt that I remade from my Piece and Quilt with Precuts book and and it is so fun and fast to make! It uses one jelly roll + background and of I used one Fandangle Strip-pie to make this one + the gray background again.
Facets from Machine Quilting with Style – Improv Piecing

Click here to get my book Machine Quilting with Style
Click here to get the Curated Solids Strip roll used in this quilt.
Facets was my first exploration of improv piecing and such a game changing quilt for me. It was the first time I placed in a national quilt show, and the very first pattern I designed for my very first book. It was also the first time I curated a collection of fabrics to achieve a certain look. I had collaborated with another fabric company at the time, not realizing that my penchant for bright colors and bold shapes would lead me to where I am today.

I love hearing about the things you’re working on and learning about your family, new home, etc. I have bought the colorweave pattern and would love to be able to make it using fat quarters. Will there be some sort of update for it that would be accessible if the pattern has already been purchased?
Happy, healthy new year!
Thanks for the kind words! Yes, you can email me and I’m happy to email you the updated cutting chart once I verify pattern purchase.
The quilts are amazing. The colors are wonderful.
