This little quilt is called Golden Rule in the book, (Be Kind on our website, oops) It takes 8 Fat quarters plus the border fabric.  The quilt and the appliques are flannel and the whole quilt is just so fun and easy to stitch. It ca be stitched by hand or machine AND if you are allergic to wool try using flannel like I did here…you will have to eliminate the one wool piece because I did use wool strips for the stems and vines but they could easily be made out of cotton if you wish; click the button below if you want to purchase a kit for this project, if you win our Friday quilt give-away we will refund your purchase!  We have the book and kit at a special price on the website for this through the weekend!  We have limited number of kits because this flannel is so popular it is almost sold out!Fat Quarter Quilts featured by top US quilting blogger, Lisa Bongean

        My “habit” is to buy in all sizes. I have purchased multiples of the same fat quarter when I like the fabric and yardage is not available. I don’t hesitate to purchase 1/2 yard cuts or yardage when the fabric is calling me.

    I usually purchase 1 yard, but lately I’ve been buying stripes to use for bindings–so if I see something I think I can use a lot, I’ll buy 3-4 yards so I have it on hand. My closest fabric store is 35 miles away so I hate having to run to the store every time I need something.

    I love fat quarters and have a whole collection of those, but if I really, really love the fabric I’ll get 3 yards because you just have to have it all and don’t want to not have enough when the time comes to use it.

    I “collect” fat quarters, but I buy a yard or more of fabrics that I just gotta have! The fabric often justifies the search for just the right pattern. Your patterns call to me, and then the fabric selection follows.

  40. Donna Avatar

    I usually buy a yard when I don’t have an immediate plan. That gives me more flexibility and I don’t run out as often happens if I have only a fat quarter.

  41. sue Avatar

    I usually buy half yards because i have a daughter and grand daughter who quilt as well so if they need some i still have some left

  44. bvobaker Avatar

    I used to buy fat quarters for “I might use this someday” or “I LOVE this fabric.” Now, I tend to buy fat quarters or half yards for specific projects. Then, when I get home, I’ll “kit” everything I need to make that project.

  45. barbara woller Avatar
    barbara woller

    For the “gotta have its”, I buy at least a yard. I would say my usual is half yard. Fat quarters are the most fun though to grab and go (and stack together in my stash).

    First I buy layer cakes and sometimes jelly rolls. This is when I “must have” at least a little bit of a new fabric collection but don’t yet know what I’m going to do with it. But when a new fabric collection is introduced and I simply “can’t live without it,” I buy the fat quarter collection. This happened when you came out with INDIGO GATHERINGS … I ordered TWO fat quarter collections from YOU of this fabric! I have a pretty good idea which quilt I’m going to make from it.

    I love fat quarters as I usually order a stack so I get the whole color way. Love your work and congratulations on your book.

  54. kattails....kathy in WV Avatar

    I usually purchase at least 3 yards of a fabric…that way I always have enough for borders cut on the lengthwise grain. As I do not live near any local quilt shops and have to travel at least an hour to buy fabric it makes sense to me that I get a larger amount in case I cannot find the same fabric on my next trip to the shop. I do love fat quarters and pre-cuts but 3 yards is my go-to preference. Thanks so much for a chance to win….

  55. Susan Avatar

    I purchase some fat quarters but most often several yards if buying cottons. For wools- usually bundles and yardage for basic colors. Thanks for the chance.

  60. Gwen Avatar

    I started out buying fat quarters but soon went to one yard purchases. I now usually buy 5 yards when I purchase material unless I am buying for a specific project. Needless to say, I have a LOT of fabric!

    Oh Lisa! What a cute book to use all my “fats”! I usually buy fat quarters or half yard cuts as my stitch group gives “the Birthday Girl” a fat quarter to celebrate her big day! With the half yards, I get to keep a fat quarter too! BTW, when the front of the book popped up, I immediately went to the lower corner one even before I knew it was yours!
    Another awesome book by Moda I bet!

    If love the fabric and don’t have any plans at this time for its use, I will purchase at 1 1/4 yd, that way I can “play” with the quarter yard on a smaller project saving the yard of fabric for another project. I usually look for quilt backings when fabrics on sale at LQS

    When I buy fabric just to have on hand (not for a specific purpose), I generally buy fat quarters. Recently, however, I heard Bonnie Hunter talk about buying 1/3 yard cuts, as she finds them so much more usable, and only a dollar or so more than a fat quarter. That makes a lot of sense to me, and that is what I will do in the future.

    I’m a fat quarter kind of girl but if a fabric speaks to me I’ll get a couple of yards lol.

    I usually buy half to full/multiple yards. I rarely buy fat quarters because if i like a fabric, I gotta have enough to fondle plus use in a project. I can so easily see me making the Be Kind one in any number of your cotton prints. No matter the fabric, it will be fabulous for a nice wall hanging. Thanks so much for the great give away offer.

    personal stash of fabrics in an adaptation of the Kon Mari method. (You tube) Perfect when you need to pull everything out to find fabrics for a new quilt!

    I generally buy fat quarters unless I’m making something that requires just 1 or 2 fabrics, then I buy what the pattern calls for plus a bit more for my stash. Love your little quilts..

    I normally buy fat quarters because I love fabric and colors and I usually don’t know what I want to do with them. I find fat quarter bundles are usually any-project-friendly and an affordable way to get every sku in a particular line. I am currently using my Indigo Gatherings and my Urban Farmhouse Gatherings for the Moda BH3.

    In the past I collected fat quarters. Now I like a scrapper look so am getting more layer cakes.

    I absolutely love this new quilt! I am a collector of all fabric. I collect fat quarters, yardage usually by the yard, wool fabric, and I’m really loving your line of flannel. The colors of your flannel is so rich and deliciously soft.

    Fat quarters because don’t require a lot of money and they are so easy to use for all kinds of projects big and small

    Neat book! I love purchasing precuts but also purchase a lot of yardage because you can never have too much fabric!

    Love the Be Kind quilt! Really need that reminder now. I collect half yards because it offers more options for the full width of fabric.

    Layer cakes, jelly rolls seem to be my first choice. If not available I get 3 yards of each fabric because heaven forbid I should be short on one. 😂

    Hi Lisa,

    I usually collect 1/3 yards of fabric when I am buying with nothing special in mind. I can cut 2 and 1/2 inch strips from that and still have some leftover for appliqué or blocks in different sizes. I love the book and would be excited to win it.

    Thanks for your inspiration and generosity.

    I usually buy fat quarters. I like that you can get a selection of fabrics then you can just pick up extra yardage for borders & backs.

    I like to use any precuts unless I’m doing a project that requires more fabric. If I see something that catches my eye (which is almost everything!) I’ll buy a yard or two of the fabric.

    It depends…I have several fat quarter collections from favorite designers but mostly I have layer cakes due to the smaller size quilts I usually sew. clara-chandler@att.net

    Well, kinda a hard question. If it’s pretty I’ll buy 3 yards. Most of the time I buy a jelly roll or 1 1/2 yards of a blender for making quilts for our guild.

    I buy fat quarters usually when there is a sale. I buy in color groups usually. Since I do machine appliqué, I always have a source for my designs. Also, we have fat quarter drawings at our guild so I’m able to donate to the cause.

    I buy a fat quarter if I like it I like to buy fat quarter collections. If I buy yardage, it is usually two yards. When I see fabric suitable for backgrounds, it is four plus yards. I also buy kits if the pattern I like calls for a lot of different fabrics. It would be wonderful to win. Barbara

    Good morning, Lisa. My go to fabric would probably be yardage. But as I am an addict precuts find their way to my stash often, especially with wools and wool flannel as I use smaller sizes of those.

    Hi Lisa! Thanks for the opportunity. I usually buy 1/3 or 1/2 yard cuts of fabric when stash building. If I find a good background fabric with possibilities I grab a few yards. If a fabric really appeals to me I will buy a yard. Been to your shop and love the selection.

    I usually start out with one yard cuts – and save scrapes in zip bags until it’s all gone. I do collect FQ and srt by theme or color!

    Hi Lisa: I always buy with more than one project in mine. I will normally purchase 2 1/2 yards at a time. This gives me leftovers for other projects such as a purse or tote bag. It challenges me to use the extra fabrics with what I have on
