Cake Mix Quilt Book - Sherbet Quilt

Happy Cake Mix Monday!!! What a great way to start the week!!! I'm super excited to quilt along with Fat Quarter Shop and It's So Emma with their new book: Cake Mix Quilt Book -Volume 1.

Cake Mix Quilt Book - Volume 1 contains 16 quilt patterns plus a "how to" for using the Moda Cake Mixes to make perfect half square triangles. Plus each pattern is clearly written and easy to follow! I chose to make the Sherbet quilt...which I just LOVE!

I wanted to make my quilt red and gray so I made my own layer cake using reds from Moda's Sweetwater: The Tree House Club and Bonnie & Camille: Little Ruby and Basics plus Pat Sloan: Sunday Drive. 
Each 1/2 yard of fabric gives you (4) 10" squares plus extra fabric for scrappy binding or 1 yard gives you (12) squares plus extra fabric for scrappy binding.

Mini Charm Chocolates Quilt with Fat Quarter Shop

I'm so excited to share my Mini Charm Chocolates Quilt with The Good Life Fabric by Bonnie & Camille! I love this quilt so much! It is perfect for mini charm packs or jelly rolls or layer cakes or charm packs! Fat Quarter Shop is sharing the Mini Charm Chocolates pattern for free with multiple sizes: table runner, crib, lap, and queen.

I chose to use Bonnie & Camille's The Good Life fabric with Moda Crossweave. I love this fabric sooooooo much! This was my first time sewing with Crossweave and it is fabulous! It adds such wonderful texture!

Ready to gather up your 2.5" squares and start your Mini Charm Chocolates Quilt! Be warned...once your start sewing your will want to make your quilt bigger. I started with the lap size and then super sized it with extra mini charm packs.  My quilt measures about 70" x 78".

Rhinestone Tablerunner with Fat Quarter Shop

I'm super excited to share my Rhinestone Tablerunner with Fat Quarter Shop for the Tablerunner Bliss Quilt Along! I used Gingiber's new Savannah Collection with Moda Fabrics. I love the cute safari animals with the matching black, gray, and cream prints!

I chose the Rhinestone Tablerunner from the Tablerunner Bliss book by Sheri Falls because I loved the large open center in the block, which was perfect to appliqué a safari animal to the center of each block. I used Heat N-Bond Lite to adhere the animals to the block centers and stitched around the edge (optional).
