    Layer cake

    I have found a layer cake I had thought was lost.only problem is I used everything that went with it and I need ideas . The layer cake is pale gray/blue very Parisian . What colour would you put with it and a pattern. Thought of MSQC new pattern or the star one. I just love a challenge something differen. I'm trying to use up my stash as it has spread all over the cottage and needs containing.
    Thank you in advance of help.

    Do you know the name of that layer cake? If it's from Moda it should be easy to
    find the PDF from United Notions.

    Just hold colors like those up to your layer cake pieces. If you like it sew it up.

    MSQC has a layer cake pattern where you cut the 10" pieces thru the center so you have two stacks that are 5" x 10". Take the top piece from one stack and put it on the bottom, then sew the two pieces back together. Once all the blocks are sewn back together, turn the blocks 1/4 turn and cut again, this time off center, maybe at 7". Once again, take the top piece from one stack and put it on the bottom, then sew the two pieces back together. If you start with 40 - 10" squares, you will end up with 40 blocks. You can just sew the blocks together and make a scrappy looking quilt or you can sash the blocks using yardage. I made a couple baby quilts from one layer cake and it went very quickly.

    mckwilter, Thanks for the pattern from MSQC. I printed it out, looks like something I'd like to do sometimes.
    DOTTYMO, it does seem like a pale yellow or maize might be very pretty. Sounds like a sophisticated color palette. I have never used a layer cake before, but think I will try with what mckwilter posted. I
    Blessings ...
