Ten inch layer cake squares speed construction. Give your quilt a scrappy look, like this one, by using up leftovers in your stash. You can also coordinate colors around a theme. Or, choose a layer cake pack from a favorite designer and the color coordination will be done for you.
The “Moda Love Layer Cake Quilt” above, by April Rosenthal, is 72″ x 72″. However you can choose from two other sizes. Simply decide which size of pre-cuts you want to start with and go from there.
Quilt from Minick & Simpson.
The version made from 5″ charm squares, “Moda Love Charm Quilt”, finishes at 32″ x 32″. That’s a great size for a wall quilt or table topper.
Quilt from Seams Crazy.
The following quilt, by Taunja at Carried Away Quilting, shows how lovely the quilt is in holiday colors.
She added a 1 1/2″ inner border and a 3″ outer border, so the finished quilt measures 41″ x 41″.
Taunja also made a version using 2 1/2″ fabric squares. The “Moda Love MiniCharm” quilt is about 12″ x 12″ once completed. It’s perfect for a snack mat or table centerpiece. It also will be lovely on your wall.
This wonderful pattern is very versatile. Play with color and value to create your own striking version in any of the three sizes. Here are some beautiful ideas to get you started.
