FQ Frenzy : Craving Cupcakes & Simple Patchwork Pattern

Hey there friends!

We have another FQ Frenzy bundle to share with you this week.  AND, over the next few weeks I will be sharing a quick quilt design to show you how to whip up something pretty with just 10 fat quarters.

First, let's talk about this sweet bundle - Craving Cupcakes.

We've selected a delicious combination of pink, yellow and blue prints from Cherry on Top along with a few coordinating Bella Solids. Simply sweet!

For this week's FQ Frenzy pattern, we're sharing two ways to arrange these in "Simple Patchwork."

First, cut each of the 10 fabrics into NINE 6-inch squares using the cutting diagram below.

Then you can arrange the 90 squares in a 9 x 10 format (finished size approx 50" x 55") in either a random mix or a diagonal pattern.

Just arrange your squares and sew them in ten rows of nine blocks.  Then stitch the rows together.  Quick and easy!

Of course, this Simple Patchwork pattern can be used with any of our FQ Frenzy bundles.  How's that for an entire quilt top for just $20 bucks?!

Backing & Binding:  You'll need 1/2 yard for binding and 3 yards backing.

Happy Sewing!  :-)
