Nail Polish Quilt ~~~ PLUS BONUS TUTORIAL!!!

I was really excited when Fat Quarter Shop asked me if i was interested in promoting their new Nail Polish Quilt Pattern.

Of course I was!

How could I not be?

It is such a cute pattern!!!

Here's the quilt i made from their pattern!

I have a hard time following patterns!!! But this one was fun! Not until I finished it did I realize I have made it a mirror image of what it should have been! Doesn't change it at all though!!!

The instructions were super easy to follow and FQS even has a video tutorial to help you!!!

Want to make your own?

Here's the pattern.

The  video tutorial.

If you want, they even have a kit for you in the shop!

Could i leave the Nail Polish Quilt alone???

No I had to have a Lipstick  Quilt along with it!

Here's what it looks like!!!

Don't they make an awesome pair?
