Fat Quarterly Issue 9
Issue 9 of Fat Quarterly is coming this week. Subscribers should expect access to their copies in their in-box today and single issues will be available to purchase later this week.
The theme for this issue is Kids and Teens - creating with and for children and teenagers. It's perfectly timed with the end of school in mind - my project, above, was made with the help of my youngest's class. Everyone contributed a hand print that was then appliqued onto a simple bordered strip quilt. This quilt will be gifted to Ginger's teacher at the end of term, after he has helped write a label for it that I will embroider and stitch on to the back of the quilt.
I have never seen Ginger be so enthusiastic about sewing - he really isn't interested normally, but this project was something we could do together, which meant it did take forever to complete and the stitching isn't quite so perfect as I would like, but the bonus of creating it together means it will be a beautiful reminder of his teacher's first ever teaching post and class of children, and hopefully something she will treasure forever.
There are sneak peeks of this issue's projects on the Fat Quarterly blog all week.
All fabrics used were Brrr by Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman fabrics - to be released in June. Stay tuned for a superb giveaway featuring these fabrics next week!
