Favorite Frames Quilt


Hi! I’m Alison from Little Bunny Quilts and I am back today with a fun quilt that can be made from a single layer cake and yardage! This project is perfect for those fabric lines that have large scale prints that you want to show off! It’s small enough for a baby quilt but big enough for a throw to keep for yourself.

This quilt finishes at 55″ x 55″.



One Layer Cake of Manderly

1.75 yards Moda Bella White for background

0.5 yards for binding

3.25 yards for backing


From your background fabric cut the following:

192 — 2 3/8 inch squares (for fast flying geese)

64 — 2 inch squares

12 — 2 inch x 12.5 inch strips

10 — 2 inch x WOF strips


Separate your layer cake into 16 fabrics you want to use for the center of the blocks and 16 fabrics you want to use for the flying geese. Pair up one center fabric with one flying geese fabric. These blocks are easiest to make one block at a time. Trim each your center fabric square to 9.5 inches.


From your flying geese layer cake square, cut three (3) 4 1/4 inch squares.


Draw diagonal lines on twelve (12) of your 2 3/8 inch squares. Layer two squares atop each of your 4 1/4 inch squares, sew 1/4 inch away from the diagonal line, cut apart on the diagonal line. Press. Repeat with the remaining 2 3/8 inch squares, sew 1/4 inch from the diagonal line, cut apart on the line, and Press. Trim off dog ears. You will need twelve (12) flying geese for each block.




Sew your flying geese into four sets of three geese each. Lay out your block as shown below and sew together. Make 16 total blocks.



Sew blocks into rows of four with the 2 inch x 12.5 inch in between as shown below.


Sew your 2 inch x WOF strips end to end. You will need approximately 55 inches for the sashing in between the block rows and the top and bottom of the quilt. You will need approximately 60 inches for the sides of the quilt.


Quilt as desired and bind. Enjoy your finished quilt!


This quilt finishes at 55″ x 55″.


I hope that you enjoyed this project and that you find a layer cake to use with it! Come visit my blog Little Bunny Quilts and follow what I’m working on these days! I love sharing quilts here on Moda Bake Shop and I’m sure I’ll be back here again soon!

    Oh this is very cute Alison! I love it. Great idea. Some patterns need to be showcased 🙂 in a cute frame!!

  2. Hi, are you missing some instructions after sewing, cutting and pressing two white squares to the 4.5 inch squares? The pictures show a third white square is sewn to complete the flying geese.

    • Alison Alison says:

      No, the directions are complete. After you cut and press after sewing the first two squares, you have two units and you sew one square to each unit.

      Quoted from paragraph above.

      “Repeat with the remaining 2 3/8 inch squares, sew 1/4 inch from the diagonal line, cut apart on the line, and Press. Trim off dog ears. You will need twelve (12) flying geese for each block.”

    What a GREAT pattern. I make my flying geese by a different method, would you be so kind as to tell me what the geese are unfinished and finished size please? I have some wonderful fabric that I just can’t seem to cut and this pattern would showcase them beautifully. May you a very blessed day!

    • Alison Alison says:

      The geese are 2 x 3.5 inches unfinished, 1.5 x 3 inches finished. The fast flying geese method is the most efficient method to make flying geese and wastes the least amount of fabric.

      • Onalee Sutherland says:

        Thank you Alison for your reply. Yes, I understand your method is the most efficient way, and I don’t in any way dispute that, it’s just that another method I have used works best for me. Warm Smiles and a (((Hug)))

  4. Great way to showcase a Layer Cake! I will be saving this pattern for future use….
