Double Slice Layer Cake Quilt
6" x 24" ruler
1.)Open layer cake and stack 4 layers right sides up.
2.)Cut layer cake stack into a 3.5" and a 6.5" pieces. Repeat till cut all layer cake into 3.5" and 6.5"
3.)Keep your layer cake in order as this will help in making sure you have the contrast needed for this block.
4.)With all pieces cut turn over the stack of 3.5" pieces showing the wrong side of fabric.
5.)Now take a piece from each stack and chain piece them all together. Sewing one 3.5" piece to a 6.5" piece.
6.)Now clip apart, set seam and press open.
7.)You still have a 10" block. Cut each of the new blocks in half as shown making 2- 5" wide strips. Cut all your blocks in half this way before proceeding.
Make sure to turn one of these stacks over with wrong side up to mis-match your fabrics.
8.)Now you will sew one piece to another as shown. You want one short piece on top and on short piece on bottom as shown. Piece all your blocks before proceeding.
9.)Set your seams and press open all your new blocks.
10.)You can decide at this time if you wish to add sashing around your blocks or not. We will proceed using no sashing for this tutorial. I added sashing and corner stones to my quilt.
11.)Piece your blocks together as shown. Turning blocks short pieces up and down the ther other short pieces on side.
12.)Once you have your quilt top pieced you can decide on borders ten all that is left is sandwiching andquilting your top. Using the batting and quilting technique of your choice.
