Blocks are made

This layer cake was a challenge to work with – half of it consisted of two light prints and I wasn’t sure I could come up with something I would like but the blocks are made and I think it’s going to make a cute donation quilt – and for $12.40 which is what I paid for the layer cake at Craftsy, it’s a bargain. The photo is dark because I finished the blocks up tonight after Keith went to bed.

I will say Layer Cakes are not my favorite precut to work with … I definitely prefer fat quarters and Jelly Rolls. I feel like I have so many more options for designing and using them.

  1. Very cute quilt!! Thanks for the link to the jambalaya recipe. It looks good and I am anxious to try it. I like layer cakes but sometimes I have found them not to be cut exactly right. That is irritating! Jenny Doan from Missouri Quilt Company has a lot of tutorials using layer cakes.


  2. I personally LOVE layer cakes (tho I like all precuts, truth be told)! I think there are just so many things you can make with them! I’m working on a layer cake quilt right now & while it’s not going so hot, that’s because I decided the fabric wasn’t really a good fit with the pattern I’m using. Moda Bake Shop has some FABULOUS patterns… try them!
