Fat Quarter Quilt Patterns

We love our fat quarters and we’re always looking for the latest and greatest quilts because we know you love them, too! From super-easy and quick, to a challenging masterpiece, your favorite quilt patterns using fat quarters are right here. Some are scrappy, some work well with one, two or three color families, some are challenging, some are simple, and all of them are fun, gorgeous (we think so – we picked them!) and well worth your time.

It’s such a treat to work with smaller pieces of fabric – piecing is much more manageable! Plus, you can leave the fabric store with a bundle of several different prints and solids to use in your quilt for a fraction of what it costs in yardage. And, if you combine these with scraps from your stash, you’re ahead of the game – saving money and reducing waste! It’s all about simplicity with these quilts and we like that. Take a look at the quilt patterns available here and you’re bound to find something that speaks to you. Use what you have on hand or take a look at the collections we offer at ShopFonsandPorter.com. However you make them, you’ll love your fat quarter quilt patterns from Fons & Porter!
