From Easy Layer-Cake Quilts 2

Put your Layer Cakes (or any 10″ fabric squares) to use in 11 easy quilts that are as pretty as can be. A Layer Cake, a background fabric, and maybe a border fabric or two are all you need to begin.

Barb and Mary make every quilting adventure fun—just ask the attendees of Moda and Martingale’s recent Quiltstock retreat. These popular quilt designers and teachers showed up in their jammies ready for some nighttime sewing with the retreaters!

We had so much fun creating the first book that we decided to do it all over again. We love working with precuts, and Layer Cakes are one of our favorites!

Precuts were just emerging onto the quilting scene when we first started designing fabric. Everyone wanted patterns that used these delicious new cuts. We fell in love with precuts and have been coming up with patterns to use them in ever since.

So what is a Layer Cake? Can you eat it?

Layer Cake is a term trademarked by Moda Fabrics to describe a bundle of 42 precut fabric squares that measure 10″ x 10″. Each Layer Cake usually contains at least one square of each fabric from an entire collection. They’re fast, fun, and easy to use!

Our latest book is a follow-up to our previous book, Easy Layer-Cake Quilts. Just like in that book, Easy Layer-Cake Quilts 2 features 11 projects made specifically for using Layer Cake precuts. All of the quilts are designed for confident beginners and beyond. None are overly time intensive, and most can be completed in a few days. For best results, just be sure to read the “quilt recipes” carefully before cutting.
