You’ll find many free layer cake quilt patterns – to use your layer cake fabric with.
What is a layer cake? Layer Cake precuts come in packs of 42-10″
They are 10″ squares that come in a set or fabric collection. You can also cut your own layer cakes using the 10″ ruler here.
They are great for really any kind of quilt. Easy to use, similar to a fat quarter – large nice square piece of fabric.
What size of quilt can you make with a layer cake?
The quilt size you can make with your layer cakes will depend on the quilt pattern you choose to recreate.
For example, if you were to sew all the blocks together to create a patchwork quilt top with the 42-10″ squares from one layer cake, you would make seven rows of 6 squares each.
The size of that quilt top would be 57″ x66 ½” which makes a great throw size quilt.
