Quilter's Secret Exposed:
Co-ordinate fabrics like a pro, every Time!

Discover How...

NOTE: Actual fabric colours may vary compare to colours appear on your monitor, 
because of differeces in settings, brands and other factors outside of our control. 
Pattern placements may be different too because the pieces are cut at random from a whole roll.


"Very nice fabric, beautiful prints. So inspiring!

Thank you so much for shipping my product so quickly. I am looking forward to the weekend when I can begin my project.... oh, can't wait!"

- Anne, a Happy Customer




Let's face it: so many of us dread the thought of selecting fabrics for a quilt, whenever we start a new project......

Because choosing fabrics means stress and agony of having to make decisions on the spot..... which could be pretty permanent....!

You need to consider colours, patterns, and whether something go together.... and after all that, still wondering IF the person you're making the quilt for will like it at all... 

 

Phew.... talk about hard work, and you haven't started sewing yet...!


Imagine NEVER having another "meh" moment when you're so close to finishing your quilt, only to discover that you're not too sure about the choice of fabrics after all....

Instead, think about how satisfied you'd feel if the end result was just like what you've seen in the magazines or quilt shows, even better....

........ and EVERYONE commented on how amazing you are at choosing fabrics and putting colours together!!!


What if choosing fabric was easier than you think?

Hey, you might as well take credit for being AWESOME at co-ordinating prints for your quilt...
..... seeing you've done the hard work of sewing anyway!


Often the hard part is to come up with know the "how".......


Formally trained as a Fashion / Textile Designer - now a Quilter & Patchwork Teacher - I have spent the last 10 years teaching others and sharing the joy of Patchwork Quilt making.


Recently I had a conversation with a fellow local designer, Nicole Mallalieu (from the "You Sew, Girl!" fame)... about how people are amazed that some of us seem to have "a flair" in choosing colours and fabrics.

Since we both graduated from the same fashion design institute, we can vouch for each other that such "flair" was definitely more "nurture" than "nature" (i.e. none of us are born with the ability... we simply got trained...!!).


That means YOU too can have the "designer's flair".....
...... and actually ENJOY putting colours together!



There is no doubt that it will take some time and practice to get there.....

But the first step in becoming confident in choosing colour is to have the right visual aid at the start... this is the easiest way I know.

The Secret of creating stunning quilts EVERY time....

This collection is called "Summerfest".......



Summerfest is a celebration of Summer - that most magical season.

The asphalt feels like a frying pan and the nights are breezy and balmy. Everywhere you look, the colors are bright, vibrant and cheerful – swimsuits, snow cones, tank tops and flip flops.

The prints in Summerfest are inspired by fireworks, parades, picnics and flower gardens - the epitome of Summer to me.


- xoxo, April

What on earth is a "Fat Eighth"?


No.... it's not a body part :-)

To define what a "Fat Eighth" is, let's look at a "Fat Quarter" first....

A quarter of a yard gives you 9 inches of fabric, across the width of the roll - so you end up with a long, skinny piece - roughly 9" x 42". Not all that useful, is it?

Now, picture thisinstead: you cut one whole yard off the roll, and then fold this in half lengthwise and widthwise, you will end up with a couple of creases in the form of a cross.

Cut long these two line, and you get four pieces, each measures roughly about 18" x 22". That's a Fat Quarter.

Half that, and you get 9" x 22". That's your Fat Eighth. As opposed to a "skinny 1/8", which is a long strip of fabric that measures 4 1/2" x 42". Isn't the Fat 1/8 piece a much more user-friendly cut?!






Ok, what are Fat Eighth Bundles then?


Fat Eighth Bundles are made of Fat Eighth pieces.... stacked together and tied into a nice tall bundle.

See below - how cute are the Fat 1/8 Bundles, next to Fat 1/4 Bundles........ Adorable, arn't they?


 
Note: Photos shown for size comparison purposes only. See other photos for actual item for sale.

These are 9" x 22" pieces of coordinating fabric that come from the same collection of fabric (also known as a "fabric line", "fabric range" or "story").

Fat Eight Bundles (also called Fat 1/8 Packs) include one of each of the prints, anywhere between 25 to 40 pieces epending on how many different fabrics are included in the range.

Most of the well-known fabric manufacturers - such as Lecien, Kokka, or Moda - release Fat Eighth Packs with every fabric line they produce.

It is an easy way to get variety in your projects. If you love a fabric line, it's a great way to get a decent piece of all of it (and not miss out on any)... in one easy step!



Have you fallen in LOVE with a certain range of fabrics..?

Consider buying multiple packs of Fat Eighths.....


This way you will end up with more fabrics to play with, and this opens up your options when it comes to deciding what quilt design to go with (and what size to make them in).





Why Would I Want a Fat Eighth?


Because it works out BEST value :-)

Think about it.... the alternative is to buy Moda Fat Eighths individually.

Since 1 x Moda Fat Eighth costs around $4.00 each these days...

40 x Moda Fat Eighths will set you back a hefty $160.00.


By ordering your fat eighths from us in a precut bundle means you can save more than $70.00 - that's almost Half Price - and you end up with the complete collection. How good is that?!

If you have a limited budget, this is the BEST way to get the widest variety of prints possible. Brilliant!




How does this Fat Eighth Bundle help me with fabric selection?



That's the BEST thing about Fat 1/8 Packs - you DON'T need to worry about selecting fabrics!

Because Fat Eighth Packs give you the ENTIRE fabric collection, the hard works of co-ordinating fabrics has been done for you...

You see, a fabric collection will typically include coordinating small / medium / and large scale prints, in several different colour ways. This gives your project the designer edge that looks like you've spend AGES on selecting just the right fabrics.

A well-known textile or fabric designer (sometimes a team) would have put in pain-staking effort to make sure that the fabric collection they produce are something that YOU will love, and hopefully inspire you to make quilts, garments and bags that EVERYONE will love!





When you purchase a Fat Eighth Pack, it's like having your OWN expert team of designers or friendly patchworkers picking out fabrics for you...!!

Hey, why not let someone else do the hard work for a change?


Once you have bought a few Fat 1/8 Bundle and made a few things from the fabric, you will find that choosing fabrics and co-ordinating colours / prints become less stressful over time....

In fact, you might even look forward to start putting together your own fabric stash when you go to fabric shops and quilt shows!

This is because as quilters, we all tend to be "visual" learners.....

By working and playing with fabric ranges that have already been put together by professionals, we learn to see what goes together, and what contrast with each other successfully. Another word, we learn by examples....

This is just like having your very own private tuition of colour and design theory, without any pressure and high cost.

Better still, you get to have heaps of fun and make tons of beautiful things for your family and friends too...!!!

(... they're gonna think that you are amazing....)
 



About the Designer.....

April Rosenthal

April Rosenthal was born long enough ago that she remembers the first computer coming to her school, but recently enough that she’s not responsible for her fashion choices in the 80s. She grew up in a mid-size town, and married her high school sweetheart. Together, they have 6-year-old twins.

April started sewing as a young girl, and hasn’t stopped since. From Barbie clothes, to patchwork pants, and pencil pouches to quilts, her sewing hobby has taken her many places. She spends myriad hours in her quiet studio creating original quilts and patterns for her company, Prairie Grass Patterns, and is delighted to be a designer for Moda Fabrics. Her designs are published regularly in magazines, and have also been included in several collaborative books. She is currently working on her first book, to be published Fall 2014 with Lucky Spool.

April gets excited about learning new things, teaching and inspiring others to improve their skills, and being healthy and present with her family. She believes in the power of great design and beautiful color palettes, and is hopelessly obsessed with the color orange.


....and YOU get to enjoy instant success in whatever project you've set your heart on, because the fabrics speak for themselves!
