You for sure are familiar with what to do with a Layer Cake and have already gathered a bunch of ideas.
But sometimes a genius idea comes along which is just to good to miss – I love this very simple and quick but great looking idea from fatquartershop and happily joined the blog hop about this pattern fun.
It’s a free downloadable pattern using – as the name reveals – a layer cake. What I really love about: I can just buy my favorite collection in a bundle, have a precut format which saves me lot of cutting time, the pattern is so easy and quick that I did the entire quilt in just two hours, it looks great although it is simple, all my layers of the bundle are used up (actually some are not used on the top, but I incorporated them into the backside), no waste here – this all summed up makes me to want sew another and another and another one: for the baby my friends daughter is expecting, as a birthday present for my nice, as a welcome gift for my sister coming for a visit from San Francisco, and so much more ideas.
I mean $39, two hours of sewing – and a nice quilt is ready – that’s in my opinion kind of genius.
There are some more designers participating in this “pattern festival” and every designer will show you the quilt in her current collection. Mine is SPHERE for Moda, a fresh, graphic and modern group with colors ranging from white, grey, blue, turquoise and teal to yellow.
Precuts from Sphere are already available, and yardage will be shipped to stores in February.
So where to get the miraculous pattern? Find the free download right here. Grab your assortment of fabrics, your ruler, rotary cutter and your cutting mat, and off you go.
