You may be thinking, pizza? How does this relate to pizza? But you will see! A rotary knife is sorta like a pizza cutter, isn't it?
We will be using every piece of our layer cakes. From the Bella White Layer Cake they will be used as our background piece that we will then applique our "pizza" to.
1. You will need to create a 10"circle template (circumference). I know that there are some special rulers out there that can do this, or you can use a compass, or you can do what I did....go through all of your bowls in your kitchen finding the perfect size!
Regardless of how you get your template, make one. Then use it to trace a circle onto each of your Vintage Modern Layer Cake pieces.
*Turn the fabric over and trace on the back.
Take your pile and cut all the pieces in half. Measure it up the best you can and try to get it even.
3. Separate the different pieces so that they are matched up with a different piece of fabric and sew a 1/4" seam on the straight edge. Do this for all of your different 6 circles.
5. Once you have pressed your seam open, line up your circle (oval) and cut it in half again. *Make sure that you cut perpendicular to your seam line. *By this time I started to use pins to match up my seams and hold the ends together.
Do this for all 42 pizza slice blocks and then your ready to start assembling your quilt!
8 ~ 6" x WOF (width of fabric)
97 ~ 2.5" x 10"
56 ~ 2.5" x 2.5"
2~ 6" x 71.5" and 2~ 6" x 94"
Once you have these 4 pieces sew them to your quilt top. Sew together the shorter pieces first (top and bottom) then the longer pieces (side pieces).
Makes a beautiful quilt approximately 80" x 92" quilt. Perfect to use as a nice picnic quilt or to spread on a queen size bed!
