Sew Happy Friday – An Easy Quilt to Make with Fat Quarters


The Broken Bar Quilt from the Missriouri Star Quilt Co. is a quick and easy quilt to make with fat quarters.  If you have larger prints or you want it to go a bit faster, you could probably cut some of the strips wider and skip the really narrow ones.  In fact, for really large prints mixed in with smaller prints or solids, you could cut some quite large pieces 10” across as feature fabrics.  In this design it would look quite stunning, I think.  Just make sure you get them right side up. :-)

You can also “shop your own stuff” by selecting quilting fabrics from your stash and scraps to cut into 10” sections rather than using fat quarters.  I probably have quite a few scrap pieces that would work for this.


  1. Thanks for posting this. Her tutorials are so clear and easy to follow. I'm not very experienced quilter, so I wish that she had shown how to quilt the finished quilt. My main problem with making quilts is that I don't have a lot of room where we live so I don't have a craft room where I can spread everything out and sew to my heart's content.

    1. I'll see what I can do to answer your request.

      My sewing room is rather tiny and crowded and, sadly, it is piled again right now, so it isn't very easy to work in. I don't have a cutting surface there, so I have to work at the dining room table, which limits me somewhat. :-)
