It’s Easy to Piece and to Adjust the Size!
A novelty fabric inspired this beautiful quilt by Ruth from Ye Olde Sweatshop. Ten inch layer cake squares combined with white strips, as well as careful color placement, create the wonderful design.
Any color combination and type of fabric will be wonderful in this quilt. It’s a great one for showing off fabric, especially larger scale prints.
Play with placement to create a gradation of color as Ruth has. Or choose a different arrangement for your version.
The quilt was adapted from the “Salt Air Layer Cake” tutorial by Ashley of “Mommy by day Crafter by night”. Ashley’s quilt is just as appealing and show how nice the quilt is in a multi-color theme. Notice how the borders differ between the two quilts.
Ruth added more blocks for a quilt that finished at 73″ x 81″. She used the Large Half Hexagon Ruler for 10 Inch Squares to cut pieces for the border.
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!
