This quilt along was just “mint” to be! Inspired by Julep, Kona’s Color of the Year, we’ve curated a complementary fat quarter bundle and paired it with our favorite Courthouse Steps blocks for a minty fresh quilt experience that is the Mint Inspired Quilt Along!
For those daunted by the design of these quilt blocks look no further than our Courthouse Steps Foundation Paper Piecing Block Tutorial. Our video tutorial will guide you through everything you need to know and you can follow along with Kimberly as you work anytime you quilt!

Mint Inspired Quilt
While these blocks may look like log cabins, don’t let them fool you! They’re actually Courthouse Steps Foundation Paper Blocks. The center square sits differently on them, but if you prefer to you can definitely sew with the 6” log cabin paper instead (that just may slightly alter your design).
The Mint Inspired Quilt is a lap quilt and finishes as a 48.5″ square. This is a casual quilt along compared to our usual style. This means it doesn’t have a set start or end date, but rather you can sew it anytime this year to participate! Kimberly will be sewing the Mint Inspired Quilt for a Quilting Livestream sometime this year, so be sure you’re subscribed to the Fat Quarter YouTube Channel to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
