Missy - Free Quilt Pattern - Layer Cake


Boy do I have a even more lovely quilt for you to make. So I was going threw some old books of quilt blocks and came across this beauty! I had to figure out a way to use a pre-cut. After many trials and errors of finding the perfect size so that they're is no waste I found that a layer cake would do the trick! Also I normally do fast and quick quilts for you to make but this one will be a little more time consuming but I think the out come is totally worth it and HEY it's still very easy to make! Finished Size: 65" x 65" This quilt is featured on FaveQuilts!





Fabric used in this quilt are from Island Batiks in their line Crystal Cove! Aren't the fabrics absolutely stunning. Background is Kona Cotton White.

  3. This pattern is incorrect.
    If you take a 5" square, cut it on the diagonal and pair it with the same size Background Triangle and sew it together into a Triangle Square it no longer measures 5". When I sewed the triangles together I got a 4.5" Triangle Square. When you sew the 1.5" squares to the 2.5 x 5" rectangle's corners you still have a 5" x 2.5" rectangle. This does not match up with the 4.5" Triangle square. The Rectangles need to be cut at 4.5" x 2.5" to make this pattern work. Jude Spero, www.littlelouisedesigns.com

  4. Very effective. Why not place a background 5 inch square and a print square right sides together and sew on each side of a diagonal line drawn on the back of the background square? Cut in between the two lines and you have two half square triangle blocks with no trouble with the bias edges of a cut triangle. Just a thought.
