Patisserie - Block of the Month #4

Patisserie Block 4

Patisserie is a Block Of The Month sampler quilt that has been exclusively designed to use with the Accuquilt GO! QUBE Mix & Match block sets. The great thing about the GO! QUBE Mix & Match sets is that while I’m using the 8” Block set for my pattern sample, you could just as easily use any size QUBE that you have as the shape numbers are all the same! You will just need to adjust the size of your fabric cuts accordingly.
This pattern was inspired by all those delicious cakes and pastries found at a patisserie, covered in delicately iced designs, and a glorious array of colour to behold. The quilt finishes at 36” x 46” using the 8” QUBE (30” x 38” with the 6” QUBE; 39” x 50” with the 9” QUBE; 48” x 62” with the 12” QUBE). I’m using a rainbow of solids from the Solids Club provided by The Creative Retreat, but your petit fours will look just as scrumptious in prints too!

Quilt finishes at 36” x 46”; individual blocks should measure 8.5” x 8.5”.
