Faith at Fresh Lemons designed and developed this beautiful pattern and curated the fabric for the kit. Faith is a talented quilter and her blog has been a continuing source of inspiration for us at Fabric Spark. I made my first quilt using one of her tutorials so she was the first person I asked to curate a quilt kit. Island Girl is a bright and cheerful quilt assembling a few different varieties of easy to make blocks. The pattern is suggested for an advanced beginner.
She has chosen a beautiful collection of fabrics to use including these fat quarters (clockwise from top right)

The fat quarters will be substituted for the solids used in the pattern, matching light, medium, and dark pinks, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, and purples.
The kit includes all of the fabric you need for the quilt top and binding including fat quarters of each of the fabrics listed above, 2 3/4 yards Winter White from Free Spirit Solids, and an extra 1/2 yard of the Garden Patio Cove for binding.
To finish the quilt, you will need the equivalent of 3 1/2 yards of fabric for the backing (I suggest piecing together larger pieces from your stash, Faith does this on most of her quilts and it's stunning), and a 60"x70" piece of batting.
