Trifle Dish Quilt

Today’s instructions give fabric requirements for the entire quilt top plus backing and binding. Remember that there are many options when piecing the Trifle Dish blocks so you can make substitutions using other precuts for a more scrappy look. Several options are given.

  • 1 fat quarter bundle (at least 32 fat quarters) -OR- 52 layer cake squares {1 layer cake plus 5 fat quarters cut into 10 additional layer cake squares} + 12 fat eighths -OR- 5 charm packs + 12 fat eighths 
  • 4¼ yards background + whipped cream fabric
  • 41 layer cake squares for border (optional)
  • ¾ yard binding fabric (370″) | ⅝ yard binding fabric if you omit the borders (306″)
  • 9 yards backing fabric | 5⅛ yards backing fabric if you omit the borders
