I’m very excited to be back at the Moda Bake Shop. This is a combination of a basic nine-patch and strip-piecing. I’ve created an over-sized 18″ block so it goes together quickly with strip piecing. The pattern is written for layer cakes, but you could also incorporate jelly rolls, as there are many 2.5″ strips. Potluck has an old-fashioned country charm and I can see this quilt being brought to Friday night football games or on a fall camping trip. Enjoy, and visit my blog for more tutorials.
2 Layer Cakes: Potluck by American Jane
2 1/4 yards of Bella Snow or light Bella solid
4 1/2 yards backing fabric
300 inches of binding using your preferred method
Batting: 80″ x 80″
Step 1: Block Centers
Choose 16 squares from the Layer Cake for block centers. Cut into 6.5” squares.
Step 4: Assemble Blocks
Lay out units as shown. Stitch into 3 rows, then stitch rows together to form block. Trim to 18.5” square. Stitch blocks together in a 4 x 4 layout to form a top 72” x 72”.
