Here's a free pattern that works great with a Moda Layer Cake.
Charlie Chaplin and a Layer Cake
Slicing up Layer Cakes:
Recipe starts with 42 ten-inch squares of the Morris Jewels.
Yum. Layer Cake.
Yum. Morris Jewels.
Slice and add a strip of white.
For enough white to make a 6 x 7 block quilt
(42) blocks you'll need 4 yards of white.
Four yards-that's ridiculous---
One Yard, thank you free-lance proof readers in the comments.
(All the B sides face towards the center)
The finished quilt of 42 blocks will be about 55"x 64 "
With 42 layers you get 42 blocks to play with.
I drew a sketch in EQ7 that makes the most of a layer cake.
First you slice the 10" square in half diagonally for piece A.
Save one slice for A. This will be the larger triangle. Half a 10" square finishes to a block 9.125 or 9-1/8 inches. This will be your finished block size.
Take the other triangle and cut it so that each leg of the triangle is 7"
For the white layer (frosting?)
Cut a strip 2-1/2" wide by 14" of white.
Sew A to C and B to the other side of C.
Trim C so your block is square
You can do this with any set of Layer Cakes
like my Moda Alice's Scrapbag.
6 x 6 blocks = 54.75" square
You might prefer a traditional look with 36 blocks in a square
It will be 76.75" square
Add two inner borders of dark and light finishing to 2" wide
and an outer border finishing to 9" wide.
