Layer Cake Pop Quilt with Fat Quarter Shop - Mickey Mouse and Friends Fabric

I'm so excited to share my Layer Cake Pop Quilt with Fat Quarter Shop! I love this fun and free quilt pattern!!! The quilt pattern just takes 1 jelly roll (background fabric) and 1 layer cake (10" squares).  I really wanted to use the Mickey Mouse and Friends fabric collection by Camelot Cotton Fabrics so I used yardage...and it turned out fantastic! My 2 year old has claimed this one...she LOVES Minnie and Mickey!

I LOVE the Disney fabrics by Camelot Fabrics! They are quilt shop quality prints and the fabric is fantastic (nothing like the huge chain store stuff). You can find the fabrics here at Fat Quarter Shop.  This fabric was perfect for the Layer Cake Pop Quilt pattern as I was able to fussy cut all the center squares...yay!

All my squares are cut and I'm ready to start sewing! 

Isn't this fabric perfect for this fabulous pattern! Each block is 12.5" unfinished.

The quilt comes together quickly and finishes 48.5" x 60.5" as written. Since I had extra yardage and wanted my quilt a bit bigger, I added 6" borders to all sides. I love how this shows the fabric off even more!

Now I have to talk about the binding. I think I have found the most perfect binding EVER... Moda Small Dottie in Jet Black. I'm quite sure I need a bolt ;) 

Time to make your own Layer Cake Pop Quilt (links below)

Mickey Mouse and Friends Fabric. I used 1 yard of red and 0.75 yard of the other 3 fabrics as I wanted extra for fussy cutting.

Thank you to Fat Quarter Shop for having me be part of the Layer Cake Pop Quilt Quilt Along! I love this pattern and will definitely be sewing another one or two or three as I like to collect layer cakes :)

Be sure to follow me here and Instagram @mellierc (where I share my sneaks and more of my sewing adventures).

Have a great day!
