Village Quilt

Yesterday my happy package from the Fat Quarter Shop came in with an American Jane “Bread ‘n Butter” layer cake and the “Village” pattern by Miss Rosie’s Quilt company.  I just love, love, love the bright happy colors!  Don’t you?  IMG_6346As  I looked at the pattern, I noticed that it called for 8 charm packs or 280 5″ squares.  From one 10″ layer cake you can get 4 -5″ squares.  That would give me only 168 squares.  Soooo…. I was 140 short or so.  With the price of layer cakes at around $40.00, I did not want to order another stack, so I sorted through my stash and picked out some that I think work really well.  (I wish I was one of those famous quilt FullSizeRender-1bloggers who get their fabric for free, but I’m not, so I will definitely use what I have!)

I cut all of my fabric into 5″ squares or “Nickel” cuts and then put them all in a pretty pretty stack.  Aren’t they pretty?  Now I can put this project aside and head in to the kitchen where I will be making a wedding cake for my son’s friend’s wedding.  (Did I mention that I was crazy?!)
