In Gudrun’s own words – and you can’t get any better than that: The striking look of Astrid is much easier to create using the Stripology XL ruler with a focus fabric and some 2-1/2″ strips or fat quarters. Instructions for using regular rulers are included. The pattern comes with 3 different size options: lap, twin, queen/king.
Steamy Windows Supersized is the oversized version of the Steamy Windows pattern. This is another perfect pattern for large scale prints, flannels and whenever you want to make a really quick and easy quilt. Plus, it utilizes fat quarters very economically. The pattern comes with 4 different size options: crib, lap, full, queen/king.
A Quilt As You Go project, the Grab N’ Go Tote measures 12-1/2″ x 21″ x 13-1/2″. A great option is to use a laminated fabric for a water resistant base then add your favorite 5″ squares and fabrics for lining, handles and binding. We recommend using Soft & Stable foam from byannie.com for a sturdy, yet pliable bag. This project was first published in the Fast & Furious Family book which is discontinued but revised pattern has a slightly smaller finish.

In her own words, assembling this easy whimsical sailboat quilt is as fun as a day at the seaside. Blocks and rows come together without the need to match any seams. Wave blocks are strip pieced for quick assembly. The sailboat blocks use stitch and flip techniques for the boat hull and for the half rectangle sail units.
Sail units are intentionally oversized then trimmed down to size for a perfect fit every time. A paper trimming template to pair with a standard quilting ruler is included. Quilt measures 50.5 in. x 67 in.
This 50.5 in x 67 in throw quilt was designed as a fun, quick project. The star blocks use a stitch and flip technique and are designed to make it impossible to accidentally cut off points. Wave blocks are strip pieced and require no seam matching.
There are also no seams to match when joining blocks or rows, making this a very stress-free design. While the cover quilt has a seaside vibe, the design would also look lovely in Christmas colors, or in any color combination to suit personal taste or a particular season.
Breadcrumbs is a table set designed to showcase a favorite focus fabric or solid color. Large pieces make this a quick project. Pattern includes two versions, one with a single focus fabric, the second with the focus fabric and a coordinating accent. Four placemats each measure 12 1/2 in x 18 5/8 in. The runner, which makes use of focus fabric triangles left over from making the placemats, measures 15 1/2 in x 48 1/2 in.
The star blocks in Evening Light are a good candidate for showcasing a favorite medium scale print. Try florals for a soft and elegant look, or a novelty print for a bolder, more whimsical quilt. All units are made using techniques that require no cut triangles. The pattern includes instructions and yardage requirements for five different sizes from baby to king.
