Sometimes you find a really great pattern but want to make variations in the fabric requirements by using more or fewer different fabrics than the pattern calls for. I love how with quilting you can easily adjust a pattern’s specifics to meet your needs and even use fabrics from your stash instead of buying new!
So you want to make a Connector quilt out of fat quarters? I say that’s a GREAT idea! It will definitely look a bit more scrappy but can be really amazing! Scrappy quilts are great!
There are lots of different ways to go about making a quilt pattern without adhering strictly to fabric requirements. I personally prefer to view the “requirements” as more of “suggestions”.
Here are a few examples of how to adjust the fabric requirements to meet your desired level of scrappiness and use up fat quarters, or even just any decent size scraps you might have laying about!
With the launch of the Connector Quilt pattern, I have teamed up with some amazing fabric shops that are offering pre-designed Quilt Kits for you!

It’s been a long time coming but I am THRILLED to finally announce the release of my very first quilt pattern for my shop: Connector! This modern quilt pattern comes in 5 different sizes: Wall Hanging, Baby, Lap, Throw, and Bed.

I’ve been using my AccuQuilt fabric cutting machine for nearly a year now, and hands down, my favorite thing about it is how EASY it makes Half Square Triangle quilt blocks.
The ever-popular Half Square Triangle quilt block is also referred to as a HST and is one of the most versatile and iconic quilt blocks out there – used in a variety of both traditional and modern quilt designs.
In this article I will show you why I love HSTs as much as I do, and how to get them pretty darn close to perfect without ever needing to trim them! The main secret to my HST success is the AccuQuilt fabric cutting machine. The are tons of ways to make a good Half Square Triangle without using a fabric cutting machine, but using my AccuQuilt has cut the time involved drastically and I am so thrilled with the results!
