its a Cubes quilt !

I joined in with the Fat Quarter Shop this month and made the Fat Quarter Cubes quilt - its another fun and fast quilt in their Shortcut Pattern series and it makes big blocks to show off some fabulous fabrics !!

I decided to use my stash and pulled out some of my hoarded Denyse Schmidt fabrics - I used mainly Washington Depot with a few other favourites as well.

This is a really easy pattern to put together - just some squares and rectangles arranged into big 18 inch squares and joined together with sashing - it also makes a big quilt, finishing at 66 x 87 inches !

In fact the longest part of making it was deciding where to place the blocks - that probably took me a couple of days - ha !

I'm planning on doing some free motion quilted wavy lines to finish it - I actually have the backing made and the batting cut so I'm well on my way and I'm determined not to let this one become a UFO - it fits my bed perfectly :)

if you want to make your own Cubes quilt then check out the Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber post to see some other fabulous versions of this quilt and get the FREE Fat Quarter Cubes Pattern and video tutorial! All you need is 18 fat quarters, 2 yards of background fabric, backing, and binding and you’re ready to go!
