For this second post in our series on precuts, we’re showing a little love to layer cakes! A layer cake is typically a little bigger than a charm pack and consists of 10″ x 10″ squares of fabric. They’re great because you have more fabric to work with, so you can either cut it up into charm pack-sized squares or use it to make fun designs – the possibilities are endless. Plus, they’re great if you’re making a large quilt and have a lot of ground to cover.
If you’ve been looking to start sewing a quilt using layer cakes, look no further! They’re a great basic precut for quilt lovers to have on hand, so if you find yourself with one or two extras, here are 7 layer cake quilt patterns that can help them use them up in fresh and fun ways.
