Good Fortune Baby Quilt or Table Topper

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

I have been on a kick cutting into fat quarters in my stash, and it is SO liberating!  It is like giving myself permission to use the fabric and actually create something with it!  I have a rule that I have been following - for every collection I cut into, I must make something with it immediately!  That was the inspiration for making the Domestic Bliss baby quilt last week; I had cut the FQs up and was required to make something with them!  

I looked online for the most popular way to cut FQs and found this was it.  Two 10" squares, four 5" squares, and a 2.5" strip.  This assortment of sizes seems to fit many quilt patterns.  Of course, there are some patterns that really need FQs, so I won't cut up all of my FQs right now because that would take too long {huge stash!}, and I'd be bored out of my skull.

I treated myself to some delicious Good Fortune fabric by Kate Spain and cut into it within a week of receiving it!  It's a fun baby quilt or table topper at 36" square.
