Fabric requirements for Layer Cake quilt top

October 1st, 2014

What fabric you’ll need for the Layer Cake workshop:

- One ‘Layer Cake’ of fabric OR Forty 10″ squares
- One metre of fabric for the stars
- 50 cm fabric for the binding.

When selecting the fabric for the stars, note that it must contrast with the squares. I selected red for the stars, with a touch of green and yellow, because there was a touch of red in most of my layer cake squares, while green and yellow were fairly predominant.

If you wish to add borders to your pieced top then the finished size of the quilt (minus borders) is 49″ x 63″.

Have fun fabric shopping!
