Shortbread Bites Quilt Pattern

Every holiday season I have a tradition of making these small square Shortbread cookies. The yummy little squares were filled with brightly colored sprinkles just begging to be popped into your mouth to enjoy!

The Shortbread Bites Quilt pattern reminded me of these treats, quilt blocks highlighting simple, yet beautiful fabrics on top of each other!

Focus on your fabrics

The Shortbread Bites Quilt is a block based, beginner friendly pattern featuring only square and rectangles! Allowing you to showcase your favorite fabrics or fussy cut adorable details!

The unfinished block size is 12 ½”, sashing strips and corners are added to finish at 16". The pattern includes a modern version and a scrappy version. The pattern is yardage, fat quarter or scrap friendly too!

The pattern is written for pillow (12" or 16"), baby (48”X 48”), throw (62" x 76"), twin (72”x 94”) and queen (98”x 98”) sizes. I have PDF and paper copies of the pattern in my shop!

Take a look at the beautiful details in my version in Pixie Noel 2 Collection by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake Fabrics with backing in Shannon Fabrics Solid Cuddle® in Saltwater! This adorable, whimsical poinsettia quilting by Spare Threads Quilting completes the cuddly look!

Block Based Pattern

One of the reasons I love making block based patterns is that they make the pattern so versatile! My Shortbread Bites Quilt Pattern has instructions to create a single block that you can make into a pillow, wall hanging or table runner! Look at this adorable matching pillow I made with my Pixie Noel 2 Collection by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake Designs with Shannon Fabrics Luxe Cuddle® Embossed Snowflake in Saltwater for the envelope backing! The pattern includes cutting and assembly instructions on how to make a pillow but if you need additional help on making an envelope backing, check out my blog article HERE.

Pattern Testers & Kits

There are several tester versions and shops that I want to share with you! There are also 2 shops that have kits for the pattern and other amazing fabric options for you to choose from!

This is where I purchased the Ruby Star Society fabrics for my cover quilt! Since they only have a few left of those fabrics, my quilty friend/owner Lori, curated an adorable Halloween bundle and kit for the pattern! Look at these traditional yet modern Art Gallery Fabrics Halloween fabrics! Her sample quilt is definitely getting me in the Halloween spirit! You can visit The Grey Finch Company HERE and get your kit.

An amazing repeat pattern tester, Ashley blew me away with her versions of Shortbread Bites Quilt. Yes, I said VERSIONS because she made two and has kits for both of them in her shop! Visit her HERE!

Her first throw version features Willow Collection by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics. Find the kit HERE.

Her second version and kit for the 48" baby size features the Be Brave Collection by Dear Stella. You can grab the kit for this beautiful version HERE.

Debbie at Spare Threads Quilting has been testing for me for over a year now. Not only is she a super helpful pattern tester, but she is my long arm quilting extraordinaire as well! Debbie quilted the beautiful version I created using the Pixie Noel 2 Collection by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake Fabrics version. Debbie blew me out of the water with the sweet poinsettia pantograph that she used!

Debbie's test version of the Shortbread Bites Quilt is so adorable with the sweet colors and adorable animals! These fabrics are from Riley Blake Designs Safari Party!
