Mini Cake Mints for Fat Quarter Shop

Fat Quarter Shop recently released a free pattern and tutorial for Mini Cake Mints as part of their Short Cut Quilt Series. You can find the video tutorial here.

Their version can be made with one layer cake and four mini charm packs or one regular charm pack cut into quarters.

Because I wanted to make mine bigger and with a more controlled color scheme, I used one layer cake, one charm pack, a yard of blue and a yard of red. I could have used another half yard of the red as I ended up piecing the binding with something else. I did have quite a few leftover charm and layer cake squares. All my fabrics are from Lisa Bongean’s Gathering lines, mostly her newest line, American Gatherings.

Custom quilting takes a lot longer than pantographs, but I love how it looks on this quilt.

The backing came from my stash.

I tried to get a bit more creative with my photo styling.

I really enjoyed making this quilt and the piecing went very quickly. All top fabrics are from Fat Quarter Shop . Have a great day!
