I finished a thing!
I’m very excited that I was able to be a part of the Fat Quarter Shop’s most recent quilt-a-long – The Layer Cake Custard Quilt.
I chose Bonnie and Camille’s The Good Life fabric for my quilt. I was determined to use only fabric from my stash, and I had just enough of the green stripe to use as background.
The blocks pieced together super fast – it took two evenings only. I always chain piece my blocks – it’s so easy.
I was ably assisted by my two junior associates – here they are hard at work helping with the final layout.
I quilted it on my Janome 6600P, using the quilt as you go method. I used a mixture of spirals and straight lines. As always, I used Aurifil thread – shade 3320 proved to be perfect. QAYG is perfect if you don’t have a huge space, or if you aren’t able to manipulate huge quilts.
Fat Quarter Shop have created a video tutorial for this quilt – go check it out and have fun!
