Quilting Along...

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?


  1. Love your blocks! And thanks again for quilting along :) I am super tempted to join the Spell it with Moda too, but not sure when I'll find the time.

  2. I really liked that layer cake sampler when I saw it. I wish I had the time to quilt along on that one. I'll live vicariously through you.

  3. Loving the Daydreams material and your blocks.

  4. The Daydreams line is an excellent choice for the layer cake blocks. It's sure to be another stunner of a quilt!


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
