Layer Cake Tumble Quilt

By October 7, 2022October 27th, 2022blog

The Layer Cake Tumble Quilt is a new pattern (as well as a kit) from the Fat Quarter Shop as part of their Short Cut Quilt Series.

I chose The Flower Farm fabric for my version of the Layer Cake Tumble quilt – I just fell in love with the pinks and florals in this collection from Bunny Hill Designs.

I mean, check out the main print – can you see that cute little snail in there?

As usual, I did tweak the pattern a little bit from the version (available free from The Fat Quarter Shop). I kept my layer cake squares at 10″ instead of cutting them down (I don’t starch mine like Kimberly does) , as I used yardage for my sashing and therefore wasn’t restricted by any particular number of jelly roll strips available in a roll.

And to be a little bit different I chose two different colours of sashing, a light one for the darker coloured prints in the collection and this gorgeous Tea Rose colour for the lighter prints.

The finished layout became sort of a zigzag diagonally across the quilt!

I used all the layer cake squares too, so my quilt was 6 blocks by 7 blocks for a finished size of approx 70″ x 80″

This is a quick and easy quilt to make – I made the quilt top in an afternoon! So this can be a great quilt pattern to turn to when you need a finish very quickly or just an enjoyable weekend easy sewing.

I quilted this with an all over quilting design called Camellia – gorgeous big camellia flowers all across the quilt – a perfect pattern! Bound in the dark stripe from the collection. (and yes, that is my Julia binding baby helping me out with the binding!)

I have a few pieces of The Flower Farm left in my online shop here or if you aren’t in Australia check out The Flower Farm fabric on Fat Quarter Shop
