Layer Cake Sampler QAL

I've had so much fun quilting along with Amanda at Material Girl Quilts! I used Daydream by Kate Spain, a bright and colorful line, a bit of a departure from my usual colors.


Amazing that so many block designs can be created from half-square triangles...


I cut my layer cake squares down to 8" and made my half-sqaure triangle units 3 1/2", which resulted in a 12" finished block. With the leftover strips from the layer cakes, I made 4-patch sashing cornerstones for setting the blocks together.


Just need to get a backing and quilt it!

All the block patterns are available here at Material Girl Quilts. Thank you Amanda for a great QAL!!!

  7. I like how you made this smaller by cutting down the squares. I thought the 15" was a bit big, too. I didn't have any fabric left for the cornerstones, either. Clever.

  9. how cute! I love that you cut yours down and made the 4 patches--that results in a more usable sized quilt. I may have to copy you!!!

  13. Hello Cindy... i've been looking for inspiration for a quilt, and came across your beautiful quilt... gorgeous!... I'm just wondering how you finished it off in terms of border & binding? I'd love to see the fully finished item.
    Thank you for inspiring me!
