Hello, friends and happy Friday! Today I’m sharing my final new-pattern release for our Emma fabric collection by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics. The Summer Sky Fat Quarter Quilt is a large block quilt that goes together quickly and easily (I made mine in a weekend). There is also another color option for this quilt that uses a Layer Cake for the center stars and yardage for the contrast outer pieces. Finally, I’ve filmed a short video so that you can get an up-close look at the quilt and the beautiful quilting.
Summer Sky Fat Quarter Quilt
The Summer Sky quilt finishes at 80″ x 80″. As I mentioned above, my version went together very quickly. I used triangle paper for all of the half-square triangles, and because of the way the blocks are put together I was able to do a lot of chain piecing. You can find the patterns for the Summer Sky Fat Quarter Quilt here in paper or PDF or click the button below.
Layer Cake Stars Option
The second version of the Summer Sky quilt pattern is the same size but features the option to use a Layer Cake for the center stars and yardage of the dark and light greys for the outer units. This would be a fun option to use for a holiday -themed version as well.
Summer Sky Quilt Video
Watch the Summer Sky Quilt Video above or go here to watch it on our YouTube channel. In the video you’ll get a close up look at the quilt as well as some of my thoughts on piecing and other options.
My Summer Sky-Inspired Pillow
I made my test block for this quilt pattern just a bit smaller (I sized the hst’s down 1″ from the pattern), and decided it made a wonderful pillow. Just one block from the Summer Sky quilt would also make a great wall hanging!
Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look at the Summer Sky Fat Quarter Quilt pattern. Happy quilting!
