Layer Cake Fun

I watched a video from the Missouri Star Quilt Company to make a quilt out of the Moda Pre cuts called Layer Cakes. I have plenty of stash to cut up and make my own assortment.

I have been buying lots of bright fabric online at several online shops. Some were assortments and other just odd pieces. I gathered up 20 of these as the patterns calls for 40 pieces. I figured they would be used twice. I was happy to see they all looked happy and fun together.

I proceeded to cut through all 40 to then realize that I had cut them wrong. Not a huge problem as I can still make a fine quilt out of them. I have another stack and will do the next quilt following the directions carefully.

I really like this quilt and find it extremely cheerful. My taste in fabric has really changed since I first started quilting about 5 or 6 years ago. I may not choose these type of colors for a quilt in my home but think they are just perfect for charity quilts. They just look plain happy.

I enjoy making bright quilts too but I don't decorate with them much either.

Definitely a happy quilt. Love the colors together.
