The Fat Quarter Crush month two has just shipped out! This is a monthly fat quarter bundle subscription that started in May 2022. So if this is the first you’re hearing fabrics so you can build your stash, try new fabric prints, and just get a really exciting package in the mail.
This month our fat quarter bundle is from the line Hibiscus by Simple Simon & Co. The florals and greenery are so pretty, but it was absolutely the llamas that sold me on this line. I once had a dream of creating a store for everything about llamas. It was going to be called www.llamamall.com. This is actually a true story, but it never came to be. I tell you that only to emphasize that I really like llamas…and palindromes.
So now that you’ve seen the Fat Quarter Crush bundle for June, here are three ideas for patterns you could make with these fat quarters.
1. Giant Vintage Star quilt by Jeni Baker
Additional fabric needed: 2 yards background fabric
Buy pattern here
This quilt prove that there is beauty in simplicity. This pattern will also show off the prints of the fabric super well.
2. Lucky Log Cabins by Quilty Love
Additional fabric needed: 3 coordinating fat quarters for small throw size
Buy pattern here
Emily Denis of Quilty Love is the queen of simple patterns that look way more complex than they are. I highly recommend her patterns.
3. Open Wide Zipper Pouches
Additional fabric needed: None for small size. You’ll need interfacing and a zipper.

Noodle Head Patterns are some of my favorite bag patterns. They are well-written and easy to follow. I have made about a hundred of these open wide pouches over the years. They are quick and simple!
I hope this fat quarter bundle is inpiring you to take some time to be creative this month. Remember, time spent being creative is not time wasted!
