    So pretty, thank you. Perfect for a little girl I know and I have a layer cake!

    Bright, cheery and doable! Must be why layer cakes sell out so fast!

    Cutest idea ever. Perfect for scrap busting…… which is something that I could chip away at my Mount Fabric
    Thank you for sharing

    What a fantastic pattern to use some of my layer cakes! Thank you so much.

    This is so beautiful! What a great pick using that polka dot print for the background, from a distance it reads as a beige solid and makes those bright colors just jump right out at ya! I like this clever way of laying out a disappointing nine patch block too; I’ll be pinning this for later.

    What a cute and happy quilt ! This would make a great scrap-buster too ! Thanks for making your pattern so concise to print out … so many here are dozens of pages long.
