Do you have a Layer Cake sitting around that you don't know what to do with? Or maybe you've been eyeing a beautiful line and looking for a reason to buy a Layer Cake? Well, you could jump in with Amanda at Material Girl Quilts for a Layer Cake Sampler Quilt Along - 20 half-square triangle blocks made with a Layer Cake and a background fabric. She asked me to join in and I jumped with 2 feet.
I'm using the beautiful collection by Kate Spain - Daydreams. The first 2 blocks are posted. There will be 2 blocks a week for 10 weeks. The method for making the half-square triangles is awesome - it goes super quick! I've decided to make 12" blocks, so I'm cutting my Layer Cakes down to 8" square and squaring up my half-square triangle units to 3 1/2".
My first two blocks!
And have you seen the Moda Spell It With Moda blog hop? I love letters, so I had to drop some things to start these. So much fun! More on Instagram with the hashtag #spellitwithmoda
Won't you quilt along?
