Fast, fun and easy layer cake quilt

Sewing with a Layer Cake is so much fun!  Add a charm pack (or 5” squares) and you’re on the road to success.  You can make a quilt in just one weekend, start to finish!   So, when The Fat Quarter Shop asked me to try their new Layer of Charms pattern I just couldn’t wait!



I started with a Layer Cake of Mistletoe Lane, and because I wanted a holiday look to my finished quilt I used my “tree” fabric in place of the charm pack.  It was easy to cut 5” squares.



This quilt goes together so quick and easy.  I know this is a pattern I’ll use again because it’s perfect for so many things.  I added a 4” border, corner squares and some jumbo ric rac.  Now I’ve got the perfect cover for my holiday table.  If adding ric rac is something that you’d like to try, it’s really easy.  Just stitch the ric rac to the border strips before you sew the borders to the quilt.  I pressed the borders toward the quilt.



This is the perfect pattern for those Layer Cakes you have in your stash and the best thing is it’s free!   Fat Quarter Shop even has a video to show you how easy this quilt is to make.
