Also a Great Project for Leftover 10″ Squares or Other Scraps!
Big pieces and easy piecing make this lovely quilt a dream to finish up. Just be careful not to stretch the bias edges and you’ll have it done in a flash (spray starch will help).
Select your favorite 10″ layer cake squares from fabrics you want to show off and accent them with a background color. White works beautifully, although a solid or small print in a complementary color will be just as pretty.
Play with the block layout for your own rendition of this pattern. You may be surprised how many designs you can achieve from the same set of blocks.
Instructions, in the pattern from Freckled Whimsy, are provided for quilts in five sizes:
- Baby – 38″ x 38″
- Youth – 54″ x 54″
- Lap – 70″ x 70″
- Twin – 76″ x 86″
- Queen – 102″ x 102″
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
