When I am working on a pattern, one important step in the process is trying the pattern out with several different fabric collections. I have found that sometimes a pattern works really well with one or two collections, but doesn't work well with others - I want my patterns to be versatile and work with what you have (or what you want to buy).
If a design doesn't work well with lots of different options, I don't make the pattern. The reason that I am bringing this up today is because the Kelly Quilt pattern works SO WELL with SO MANY fabrics (you can check out some of them here). Having a pattern that is adaptable makes it so much fun to sew with.
And guess what? The Kelly Quilt is fat quarter friendly too.
