OK, for this quilt, all you need are 28 x 10.5" squares of fabric. How easy is that! The only thing you need to watch is that your seams all meet when sewing it together. Here are some examples:
|Use big prints like these Kaffe Fassett fabrics|
|The checkered flag is good for motor sport fans|
|A simple rainbow effect|
Now wait a minute, I hear you thinking, a layer cake is precut at 10". How is this going to work? Well, basically the same way, and your quilt will work out just a little smaller. Not enough to worry about though. You can add a little border if you like. And if you make your quilt only 6 rows long, you will almost get two quilt tops out of one layer cake. You will just need to add a few squares of a similar style or colour, or plain squares, from your stash.
There are some fabulous layer cakes available these days. I did some online browsing and found this fantastic "Get a Clue with Nancy Drew" fabric range by Moda. I love it!
