Two Repeated Blocks and a Layer Cake Make a Beautiful Quilt!

Two easy-to-make quilt blocks combine to great effect in this homey quilt. The soft fabrics evoke spring breezes, making this a wonderful quilt to display during cold winter months, or all year around.

The designer, Nicola Dodd from CakeStand Quilts, chose a layer cake pack of 10″ squares as the basis of her quilt. The green border fabric sets off the other fabrics beautifully. Thirty 10″ squares of fabric (part of a layer cake) were used.

While we love the colors of Nicola’s quilt, we can easily imagine it made up in several other colorways. The large blocks mean the fabrics you choose will be beautifully showcased. Plus, you’re sure to have fun concocting your own version of this lovely quilt.

The quilt’s overall pattern and block structure is clearly illustrated in this image:

The finished quilt is 54” x 72”, perfect for a lap quilt to drape over the back of the sofa.

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).
