I’ve started a new quilt … it’s for my daddy and I’m using one Layer Cake.
Again, I’m using as many pre-cuts as I can to save my body any additional stress!!
The Layer Cake is called Woven Petite Layer Cake French General for Moda Fabrics and I purchased it from the Fat Quarter Shop. We have fabric stores locally …but they carry very few pre-cuts (Layer Cakes, Charm Packs, Honey Buns…etc).
I searched high and low for a Layer Cake that was man worthy (not sports, not little boy …. just a man…. that was also simple and not crazy colors) I was thrilled when I found this one!!! I think I need to order a few more before they are gone.
I’ve seen lots of patterns for Layer Cake quilts and I finally realized why I make my own patterns. I simply can not understand the directions. As hard as I try … my brain does not compute. If there’s a video …. I can do it. If not … I have to pass. I went to the store last week and bought six magazines …. I was determined to try my hand at a new quilt pattern. I’ve gone through each magazine …multiple times and I can’t figure out where to start. I’m not blaming them …. it’s totally my brain!!
So, this is another Angie original … (or it is in my mind because I’ve not seen this pattern).
Here it goes:
- I took the 10 x 10 Layer Cake and cut it at 4″ .. giving me a 4 x 10 piece of fabric. Set that aside.
- Cut a piece that measures 6 x 6 … set aside .. and you are left with a piece that measures 6 x 4.
Here’s a picture of what I drew before I began cutting (ignore my Chic n Scratch handwriting).
Once all the pieces are cut …we’ll start placing them on my Design Wall.
p.s. we woke up today with our heater not working … I swear when it rains it pours!!! Our house is a whopping 58 degrees …. brrrrrr
