New Quilt Pattern: Fanlight Quilt


I'm so excited to share a new quilt pattern with you today! 

I designed a new quilt pattern especially to showcase the line Feed Sacks: True Blue by Linzee Kull McCray for Moda Fabrics.  I loved this line so much and I really wanted to showcase the beautiful fabrics with larger squares so they really shined.  

What first drew me to this line is the tag line for it.  It reads, "Imagine growing your own vegetables and canning them, cleaning and cooking without modern appliances, and sewing clothes for your seven children. Feed Sacks: True Blue pays homage to the women who did all that and still took the time to stitch rickrack on a dishtowel, embroider a sweet bunny on the bodice of a baby’s romper, and use up every last scrap to create a quilt of warmth and beauty."  It really inspires me 💙💙💙



I do think this pattern would look beautiful with any fabric!  I want to make a few more in different lines.  It is especially great to showcase fabric that you love with the larger solid squares that are shown in the pattern.  It uses a layer cake and background fabric.  But a fat eight or fat quarter will also work!


I am proud to share this pattern with you!  You can buy it here.

I worked hard to make this pattern easy to follow.  I walk you through block construction with step-by-step photos.  It works up very quickly.  Don't be intimidated by on-point, it is a breeze!  I really think you'll enjoy making it!



I'd love to see your versions of this pattern!  Tag me on Instagram @skeinandhook and use the hashtags- #skeinandhookpatterns, #fanlightquilt, #skeinandhook

You can go to my Etsy shop to get a copy of the pattern!  I can't wait to see what you make with this pattern!  Enjoy!
