Fruit Cake Quilt - Cake Mix Monday

Welcome to Week 11 of the Cake Mix Quilt Along with the Fat Quarter Shop.
I was so excited when the Fat Quarter Shop asked me to come and play long with their Cake Mix Quilt Along and this week I am as equally excited to share with you the quilt I made.  
Allow me to introduce the ...

'Fruit Cake Quilt'

16 gorgeous quilts using 8 Cake Mixes! Use recipe cards, layer cakes, 
and the Cake Mix patterns featured in the book to build gorgeous, dessert inspired quilts!"

I have used the "Designer Essentials - Spectrum" in brights from FreeSpirit Fabrics for my quilt with a variety of low volume fabric from my stash.

This was my first time using the "Cake Mix Recipe cards" and I really enjoyed the process. The simplest  way to describe the Recipe Cards is 'Triangle paper'. You team them with 10" squares for the perfect HST.  I have another pack of Recipe cards here so I can make another, different Quilt when the desire strikes.

A quick little video for further explanation can be seen HERE via YouTube.

I chose the low volume prints as I knew that this quilt would be perfect for lazy days at the park and they would help hide any little marks.

The finishes size of my quit is 70" Square.

I am so pleased with how my 2nd quilt finish for the year turned out and what is not to love about a good rainbow quilt.

This quilt has Lily's approval :)

Here is the list of who else is sewing along.

Thank you for stopping by happy Sewing,
