Hello, my name is Doug Leko. I am 17 years old and I LOVE to design and make quilts. My mom got me started in quilting about 11 years ago.For the past couple years I have been creating my own line of quilt patterns – I design under the name Antler Quilt Design.
I’m excited to share with you my first Moda Bake Shop Recipe!

Position one Layer Cake square in front of you and cut in from the right-hand side 3”. Repeat with all 35 squares as shown.
Add one 10” x 2” Block Sashing rectangle between the two Layer Cake pieces just cut.
Sew the unit back together as pictured below. Press seams in towards Block Sashing fabric. Proof to 11” x 10”. Repeat with all 35 squares as shown.
Next measure up from the bottom 3” and cut. Make 35 units.

Sew the unit back together as pictured below. Press seams in towards the Block Sashing fabric. Proof to 11” square. Repeat with all 35 squares as shown.
Arrange your blocks as pictured below and sew the rows together. I did have a couple blocks that didn’t make the quilt and that’s okay.
Attach the Outer Borders – sides first, then the top and bottom. Press your seams towards the Outer Border.
Bind using your favorite method.
