Fat Quarter Cubes Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Linky Party!

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


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a lap size Fat Quarter Cubes quilt - a Fat Quarter Shop Shortcut Quilt - in modern fabrics by various Free Spirit designers!


The backing is a zipper made from the leftover pieces from the front.  To see the entire backing, zip on over to my quilt shop for a full reveal.


The Fat Quarter Cubes pattern is free {!} and is perfect for a bundle of fat quarters.  Large prints work well, too, because the pieces aren't cut overly small.

You can see the previous Fat Quarter Cubes quilt I made over in this post.  This time I left off the sashing, and it made a terrific lap size.



Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Fat Quarter Cubes, available for FREE here.
Size:  53" x 71"
Fabric in Top and Backing:  Free Spirit bundle from various designers and Kona Cotton Solid
Batting:  Hobbs 80/20 batting
Quilting:  Elements (maybe?!? - I can't remember!) on Gratitude in gray thread.

This quilt is for sale in my quilt shop!

Ombre Strip Square Lap Quilt | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party!

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


Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is an Ombre Strip Square Lap Quilt!  There's nothing like selling a made-to-order quilt to bump a quilt to the top of the list!


The beauty of the quilt is simply that ombre fabric is spectacular!


This quilt is made from the kit available on Craftsy.  The quilt kit actually made many more blocks than are called for in the pattern by adding in a binding fabric.   The quilt increased by 11" both directions with an additional six blocks leftover.  The fabric from those six blocks could have been used for binding, but I didn't know that ahead of time.



Quilt Stats:
Pattern:  Split Square, pattern available here, quilt kit available here.
Size:  66" x 77"
Fabric:  Boundless Ombre from the quilt kit
Backing:  Also Boundless ombre
Batting:  Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 cotton/poly
Quilting:  Zing on Gratitude in white thread.
