June Bug Layer Cake Quilt in Love Note Fabric

The countdown is on – just a little over a week untiul I can show you brand new fabric! Until then, let’s swoon a little over this quilt I just finished binding. It’s the June Bug quilt – an older design that recently got a new look in Love Note fabric. These colors are making my heart skip a beat!

A Word About June Bug

Never underestimate simple designs – they can often be the most impactful eye candy! June Bug is one of these and is made with a simple combination of half-square triangles + squares + rectangles. There are 2 different blocks to make; as you can see, one is the inverse of the other and the orientation is alternated. I would consider this to belong in the beginner skill level category. Make it with a Layer Cake (precut 10″ squares) or 13 fat quarters. The hardest part may be picking a favorite print for a border!

    I love these colors- so similar to NEST, which is one of my favorites! The pattern works well with this fabric.

    Your quilts are so very lovely. Thank you for sharing pictures and patterns with us! I am currently making your Cottage Blossoms quilt with Harvest Road and some of your yellow fabrics, and I just completed a Forest Drive quilt with Folktale. I loved working with those colors and fabrics : ) And June Bug is a great pattern that I may need to purchase!
