Tidepool - Free Quilt Pattern - Layer Cake

Tide-pool is actually made from a traditional block. Once it is shuffled around you then get this creative tide-pool effect! Using a print or batik layer cake will also make it VERY SCRAPPY. This quilt will take a little more time to construct from my other patterns but you will still have this quilt done in no time! 
Finished Size: 49" x 49" This pattern has been Featured on FaveQuilts!

Here is another version only using one print and background fabric. This gives is a new look which I also love.

Below is the same quilt BUT using TWO layer cake and of course a bit more background fabric. Finished Size for this quilt is 64" x 80"

The first quilt is made using Timeless Treasure Lagoon 10" squares with Kona White background. Second quilt is made using 2 Timeless Treasure Oceana 10" squares and Kona White background as well. Craftys has Timeless Treasure on sale for 20% off and some of the older collections are up to 50% off right now. Check it out here.

The pattern below shows you how to construct the first quilt but here are the materials you will need to make the larger quilt.
2 - Print Layer Cakes
3 1/4 yards - Background Fabric
1/2 yard - Binding 
5 yards - Backing

Special Note: You will be sewing many triangles together. This means that you will be sewing on the bias. Try your best not to stretch the fabric out or you will be needing to do some final block trimming before putting your block all together. =)

  1. Is there a better way to piece the triangles in steps 1-3 of "piecing the block"?

  2. How about the Creative Grids "Cats Cradle" ruler? I think I'll try it.

  3. The pdf link doesn’t seem to work. Have you relocated your shop online?
