I joined the Mystery Evergreen Quilt Along (and Stitch Along – see that post here) last year. I kind of lost my quilting mojo in 2023, but as Christmas drew closer, I knew I wanted to jump back into some sewing/quilting but I wanted an “easy” pattern.

Now, nothing that has half square triangles (HSTs) is easy in my book. They are the bane of my existence! hahaha

But, I was able to pin, pin, pin. And . . . SUCCESS!

Didn’t it turn out so great?! The pattern called for stitching all the leftover layer cake squares together and then cutting it down. Instead, I measured the quilt top and just made sure the back was bigger.

This pattern was a really fun, quick, and easier-than-I-expected one to put together! Here’s the important information to know:

Free Pattern from Fat Quarter Shop. I bought the kit for this mystery quilt along, but you can use any fabric. The fabric we used isn’t even Christmas fabric. But doesn’t it work so well anyway?!
