I purchased a fat quarter pack of LakeHouse Little Lady fabrics a few months ago. I had already decided to use the Baby Fats pattern with them. As some of you may know Baby Fats uses 24 fat quarters to make 4 baby quilts. It's quite clever in that you stack your fabrics and cut in such a way that leaves very little scrap fabric. Here are the first 2 tops that I finished this weekend. I took me a bit longer than usual because I decided to completely use my fabric. The Half triangles were pieced like connector corners (Mary Ellen Hopkins way). But before I trimmed the left over triangle pieces I drew a half inch line to the right of my stitch line and stitched ALL 60 again. Then I cut down the center and folded the triangle back. I should have done a tutorial on this, I still might with the boy versions that I want to make.
Anyhow, I was left with 60 3 1/2 inch half square triangles....
And this is what I made with them so far.....
Looks like Baby Fats....will give me 5 quilts instead of 4 woohooo!
Oh! Those quilts are great! Love your idea about sewing the 1/2 sq triangles before you cut your connecting corners. And that little quilt is just too cute!!!!
So cute! Need a tutorial. Love the baby quilts!
Fantastic quilts!! I love Lakehouse fabrics and how wonderful is it that you are getting 5 quilts instead of 4?
Wow! 5 quilts instead of 4 that is fantastic! I love the colors! They are so great!
The fabrics are so bright and cheerful.
