Ellen Luckett Baker joins us today with a new Designer’s Dozen Fat Quarter Pack! Ellen is the author of 1,2,3 Sew: Build Your Skills with 33 Simple Projects and the ever-popular The Long Thread blog. Maybe you’ve enjoyed our free Insulated Lunch Sack pattern from 1,2,3 Sew?!… Ellen is also a fabric designer for Moda; her first Quilt Blocks collection debuted this spring, and we can’t get enough of those Wedding Rings, Flying Stripes, Ringlets, Flying Geese and more!
Ellen jumps into a great tradition of fabulous Designer Dozen packs curated by Jessica Jones, Elizabeth Hartman, Amy Karol, Amanda Soule, Alicia Paulson, Rashida Coleman-Hale and the Fat Quarterly Team. Ellen’s pack evokes the start of a happy summer, with a bit of nostalgia and a pop of color thrown in for good measure!
- These fabrics remind me of vintage summer with flowers, checks and bicycles. I think they would be perfect for a picnic blanket, patchwork skirt or tote bag. Right now I’m using lots of navy blue and yellow in my projects, so I included those and added a burst of orange and some bright greens to complete the summer feel. A couple of these fabrics are linen blends, perfect for warm weather. Of course I also included the green Tic-Tac-Check print from my Quilt Blocks collection, which is on my list for making summer napkins.
