Red Fort of Agra is probably my favorite modern quilt pattern. I have made it the most times, by a lot. It is also the pattern I used for hosting my first quilt along. Art Gallery Fabrics sponsored the quilt along by allowing me to use their new fabric line, Pollinate, to make my Red Fort of Agra quilt. They also gave a fat quarter bundle of Pollinate to one lucky winner from the quilt along.
Week 7 is here and it's all about catching up this week. If you missed a week or are a bit behind, no sweat, you have this week to finish all those blocks. By the end of this week you should have all 20 blocks done. Although, I know some of you are making different sizes, so in that case it's time to finish up.
Week four here we go! Last week we were to make 5 Red Fort of Agra quilt blocks. But I have a hunch that some of you couldn't stop at 5. These are super hard to stop making once you start. I love seeing how each block comes together a little differently than the last.
It's the last week of our quilt along, which means we get to see all the pieces come together. I cannot wait to see what each of you has created and the way you organize the blocks. I just love the fabric choices each of you chose and watching you piece the quilts has gotten my creative juices flowing.
All right, I know, another Red Fort of Agra quilt. But seriously guys, this pattern is so fun and easy to make. It's a modern, block based quilt pattern perfect for all those fun fabrics you have lying around. It's especially perfect for any jelly rolls you want to use up, in fact it's my favorite way to make this quilt.
My scrappy Red Fort of Agra modern quilt using Cotton and Steel Fabrics is probably my favorite one... at least so far. Each time I sew this pattern I love that one just as much all the previous. It's such a fast and easy block based quilt pattern.
The Red Fort of Agra was the first modern quilt pattern I designed. For this reason it's always going to hold a special place in my heart. But I also love it because it's fast and great for those who have made a couple quilts and are upgrading their skills behind basic squares. In other words it's perfect for the advanced beginner.
