We are pleased to be apart of the Villa Rosa Designs Fast and Fun Blog Hop, a week-long blog hop that showcases 5 amazing patterns from Villa Rosa. After reading this post and entering the giveaway (yes!) make sure to checkout the other blogs on the hop to see what they've created and enter giveaways at each stop.

If you're unfamiliar with Villa Rosa Designs, it is the brainchild of owner and Rose Queen, Pat Fryer. Pat wanted to create Fast & Fun, affordable, and high quality patterns for quilters featuring precuts like 1/2 yards, fat quarters, 10″ squares, 5″ squares, 2 1/2″ strips, fat eighths, and fat sixths as well as other fabric cuts like panels and novelty fabrics.

Villa Rosa Designs has chosen 5 different patterns that use precuts which you buy right here on Keepsake Quilting or you may already have in your stash! Click the image or click here to purchase these 5 patterns from Villa Rosa Designs for $8.95 -- that's a fantastic deal!

We've worked with Villa Rosa Designs to show each of these 5 patterns in the Color Wheel collection by Robert Kaufman. Each one is stunning but don't take our word for it, take a look at these quilts yourself!

Snow Goose
Finished Size: 10" x 50"
Requires: (10) 2-1/2" Strips, 3/8 yd White Solid, 1/4 yd Binding
We've added solid black fabric to this 2 1/2" strips jelly roll pattern, easy to do with our Amish Black and it really makes those bright colors pop!

Finished Size: 54" x 57"
Requires: Dark Fabric = 9 Fat Sixths (12" x 22") or 18 10" Squares, Light Fabric = 9 Fat Sixths (12" x 22") or 18 10" Squares, 5/8 yd Binding
A simple solid black border is all we've added to this 10" squares layer cake pattern that really showcases the Color Wheel fabrics.

Hillside Charm
Finished Size: 50" x 68"
Requires: 23" x 41" Center Panel, (72) 5" Squares or (9) Fat Sixths (12" x 22"), 1 yd Frames, 5/8 yd Binding, Optional Border, cut 5" (1-1/4 yd)

Hillside Charm is made from what it sounds like a 5" squares charm pack plus either a 24" panel or your favorite yardage like we've done here with the Color Wheel line. If yellow isn't your favorite color, it's easy to imagine this with a color that is, centering your eye and drawing you in.

Finished Size: 45" x 54"
Requires: 10 Fat Quarters, 1/2 yd Binding
Perfect to pair with our 12-piece Fat Quarter Color Wheel Collection, the Nantucket pattern uses 10 fat quarters and 1/2 yard for binding to create this bright quilt you'll fall in love with.

Baby Zip Tease
Finished Size: 36" x 38"
Requires: (41) 5" x 5" Charms, 1 yd Background, 1/3 yd Binding

On this 5" squares charm pack pattern, we've paired it back with solid Amish Black for a truly explosive experience.

The Nantucket quilt is extra special in these prints! I’ll be making one in the near future!

Christine HL said:

I like the Switched quilt. That Color Wheel line sure is bright and would be a good basic to have in the stash. Missed see you at 2022 Houston International Quilt Festival. Hope to see your in 2023.

Bonnie in Va said:

I am hard pressed to decide between Nantucket or Switched. Love those Villa Rosa Designs.

SandyMay said:

Your brilliant color palette really is an eye catcher. From your examples I am drawn to Switched first and foremost. Love it.

Diane O said:

I’ve liked different ones through the hop, but in your color examples, it’s Nantucket. Thanks for sharing, it was very interesting to see the same fabric in the different patterns.

JD said:

WOW! Now that is color! Love what you did with all these patterns. Makes them really stand out. My favorite pattern from the group of cards was Nantucket with S’witched a close second. Now they are neck and neck thanks to the way you put them together. Thanks for participating in the Hop.

Lezlie Kunkel said:

Love them all….but if I must choose I’d go with S’witched.

Yvette Carter said:

I love the Nantucket design

Janet Rice said:

I really like Switched. I’d want it you be bigger so I’d add some borders or use some additional fabric.

Jo sent me. Thank you for the blog hop.

Emily F. said:

Everyday I change my mind on which I like best but today I will go with Snow Goose

This is my first blog hop and I am loving seeing all the VR patterns. My favorite is Nantucket. The Color Wheel Collection is fantastic.

Hillside Charm is my favorite, although I like them all.

Lisa England said:

Snow Goose is my favorite.

Susan Salo said:

I love your Baby Zip Tease with the stunning black! The “zip” really shows well.

Danette Stankovich said:

I have seen many beautiful interpretations of the patterns throughout this blog hop. However, I think that my favorite is Snow Goose. Thank you!



linda said:

I wonder what snowgoose would look like with background black and geese bright batiks?

Susan aka paintermom63 said:

I must admit that Nantucket and S’Witched hadn’t really drawn my eye until I saw them done up in your vibrant fabrics!

Risa Northway said:

I love your use of the Amish black to make the colors pop! I have been drawn to Nantucket, but I like your version of Baby Zip Tease! I have a yard of the Amish black I have been saving, now I am excited to put it to use!

Kathy E. said:

These are awesome patterns to play with using my stash of bright colors! I’d first use Snow Goose to make myself a table runner! duchick at gmail dot com

I love how everyone’s interpretation of a pattern makes for such different quilt! My favorite pattern is S’witched!

I love the Nantucket pattern.

Vicki in MN said:

I love how you have done up Baby Zip Tease, the black just makes it all pop!!

Gene Black said:

I love the Snow Goose in rainbow colors with black, but my favorite pattern from this group is Hillside Charm.

Marilyn Halvorsen said:

Jo sent me. I love that you showed all the Villa Rosa patterns with only one fabric collection. Color Wheel by Robert Kaufmann made a difference in what I thought was my favorite pattern. S’Witched is definitely speaking to me now. Thanks for the inspiration.

Margaret said:

I think S’Witched is my favorite of these patterns.

Cathy B. said:

Nantucket is my fav too! Thanks for mocking the patterns up in different colors.

Sharon Harris said:

I’m really liking your baby zip tease version. It didn’t get my attention until I saw it with all your colors and the black contrast. Very nice!

Linda Heckathorn said:

When the blog started my favorite was Hillside Charm. But as I have seen all the different ways the designs can be put together, especially your, I like them all. I guess the Baby Zip Tease is my least favorite. Thank you for opening the possibilities for me.

Christi said:

I love all the colors. Makes me so happy. I would choose Baby Zip Tease.

Jodie S. said:

My favorite pattern is Switched with all of your bright, bold colors. My second choice is Baby Zip Tease. The black really sets off the bright colors.
Thank you for participating in the Blog Hop. It’s a great way to visit shops from home.

Kona Linda said:

S’Witched is my favorite in this fabric series. Bold and beautiful!

Barb said:

I really like your bright version of “Nantucket”—so pretty!!

Michelle Higley said:

I am going to try my hand a Hillside.I love panel quilts

Monica s. said:

I will probably be making the Nantucket first, as a daughter request. She has already chosen a panel and some accent fabrics. Always exciting to watch a new creation develop!

Deb said:

Your samples of the patterns are very nice. Enjoyed your blog. Thank you

Cheers!, Sadie

Baby Zip Tease with the black lightning is my favorite!!

My favorite is Hillside Charm, can’t wait to start one…or two

Beth T. said:

“Nantucket” is my favorite of the patterns. I think I can make it from my stash, pulling different-sized scraps and using up some favorite fabrics.

Janice Young said:

Love ALL your quilts in ALL those bright colors.
Jo sent me.
Love your fabric sales.


J Foor said:

Hard to choose, because they are all spectacular with the colors used. I. must go with Snow Goose as my favorite…the addition of the black makes it just fantastic.

Carla said:

I didn’t really think too much of the Ziptease pattern, until I saw it with the black. Wow! Now I’m wondering how it would look with white and clear pastels…

Gee Hubbard said:

Baby Zip Tease is my fav…especially with the black as you’ve shown it! So striking!

Lori Smanski said:

these are so lovely. I love Baby Zip Tease and snow goose
