Layer Cake Pop! Free Quilt Pattern

Layer Cake Pop! Free Quilt Pattern

Today I am taking part in the Layer Cake Pop! Free Quilt Pattern Quilt Along from Fat Quarter Shop.

All you need is one layer cake and your background fabric to make this beautiful quilt.

I happened to have a layer cake from Sandy Gervais that worked perfectly. The pattern cover shows the Spectrum collection by V & Co. which is really neat and now in stock.

I got a late start on this QAL and thought I would only be able to make a few blocks but the pattern is so easy that I just kept going and pretty soon I had enough blocks made for a baby quilt. My quilt is 36″ x 48″.

Layer Cake Pop quilting

I used a 80/20 batting and Aurifil thread for my free motion quilting. This may sound funny but I have a hard time doing a large quilting pattern, most of my free motion quilting is very small, tight quilting.

This will make a beautiful baby quilt and I wanted it to be a little fluffy.

All of my piecing and quilting was done on my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine. I just happened to have the perfect fabric in my stash for the backing and binding. 

The Layer Cake Pop! quilt was the perfect backdrop for little Sadie.  She doesn’t know it yet but she is going to the groomer on Friday to get her hair and nails done. This is the photo that I used for one of my free February printable calendars.
