Easy Layer Cake Quilts!

For us there couldn’t be a more fitting name for a fabric precut. After all, it’s our favorite dessert in the form of fabric, and it doesn’t get much better than that!

So it would make perfect sense for us to create a new book just to celebrate a wonderful precut!

This book feature 11 projects, each made using Layer Cakes. All the quilts are designed for confident beginners and beyond. None are overly time intensive, and most can be completed in a few days.

So what is a Layer Cake?

“Layer Cake” is a term trademarked by Moda Fabrics to describe a bundle of 42 precut fabric squares that measure 10 x 10 inches. Each Layer Cake usually contains at least one square of each fabric from an entire collection.

I  LOVE Layer Cakes … and here are a few reasons why!

1 ~ I love that fact that when I purchase a Layer Cake, I get a piece of everything in a fabric collection.

2 ~ I love that it’s an affordable way to buy fabric when I can’t decide which fabrics to buy off the bolt.

3 ~ I love that I can hide them in my purse when bringing them into the house. To keep my purchases top secret.

4 ~ I love that they fit easily in my stash.

5 ~ I love that when I talk about Layer Cakes, my husband thinks I’m talking about food.

6 ~ I love that sewing patterns that use Layer Cakes are fast, fun and easy.

7 ~ I love that I don’t have to have any idea of what I might be making when I purchase a Layer Cake.

I know I can find something to do with it in this book!

8 ~ I love Layer Cakes because I’d rather be sewing than cutting.

9 ~ I love Layer Cakes because I get 4 times the fabric of a Charm Square.

10 ~ I love Layer Cakes because they’re lo-cal!

We hope you enjoy our new book and can find a project or two to create something beautiful with your favorite Layer Cakes!

Happy Quilting!

  4. I love layer cakes for all the reasons you mentioned, plus they’re the most versatile of the precuts. (maybe you said that). I love these patterns too, your new book looks like another winner. I expect I’ll be adding that one to my stash of MAMS books!
