    Double Slice Layer Cake Quilt

    This was a special request couch size quilt. The request was for "modern looking shades of brown". That's hard for a girl who loves 1930's reproductions and has every shade of pink created.

    It's from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. tutorial for double slice layer cake quilts. I used yardage instead of a layer cake, so mine has less fabric variations.

    The FMQ on it went oddly well. In fact, I'd say this is the first one I'm more please with than not pleased. It's like something clicked and it just worked. Weird.


    As an aside, why are my pictures always smushed together? I'd love to know how to fix that.

    Re the photos, try using your space bar to separate the pics just like they were paragraphs. I think that works...

    I really like it. I love pink also but this would be great for a man quilt too.

    Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.

    This is definitely a stretch from 1930's and pinks but you did very nice work on it. The fabrics and the quilting are wonderful.

    Your quilt is lovely. You have inspired me to make one. Already checked out the video.

    Did you use 40 layer cake squares? What size did it end up?
