Caroling Quilt

Hi, Everyone!  It is Jessica Dayon (@jessicadayon) here today and I’m here to share with you my new layer cake pattern!  I love buying layer cakes!  Sometimes I have a tendency to hold on to them though because I don’t know exactly what pattern to use for them.  Because of that, I am ALWAYS looking out for new layer cake patterns.  I often want to see how big I can make a quilt while only using one layer cake 😉

This quilt is very simple and only uses one block (with the fabric laid out differently to make 2 blocks).  I find that I come back to this block over and over.  I really love it and it’s really versatile.  This quilt is fast and fun.  It uses only one layer cake (plus background and some accent fabric) and its pretty big, finishing at 86″ x 86″.

Let’s get started with the pattern!

Grandma’s Pinwheel Quilt

Hi, Everyone!  It is Jessica Dayon (@jessicadayon) here today sharing a quilt pattern with you using Cheeky by Urban Chiks!  I loved this line as soon as I saw it and knew I wanted to do something special with it.  The pinwheels that I’ve composed this quilt of give off a vintage vibe and really look so pretty in this line.

Trimming the half square triangles in the pattern can be tedious but if you break it down over a few days, it really goes by pretty quickly.  Also, I love that this pattern only uses 3 charm packs from the fabric line plus a little bit of border and you get a pretty big quilt from it!
