Yes, I know it's Tuesday.
But this quilt was cursed.
By me, it would seem.

I made just one block different. The center one. And I like it.
I used the Bella Solids layer cakes in for mine. The digital image provided in the book had much more variety, but I'm quite enjoying my patriotic version.
The Cake Mix Quilt Book Volume I is available online at the Fat Quarter Shop, along with the recipe cards you'll need.
And I'm excited to see that they've made Cupcake versions for charm squares!
I think I'll take a break from triangles for now. Some basic square patchwork sounds very appealing right about now!
