Hey everyone - today I have a fun new layer cake quilt pattern to share with you! It's called Layer Cake Checkmate and the pattern is from the Fat Quarter Shop.
You can find (download / print) the free pattern here from the Jolly Jabber blog. And for those of you who learn by watching, there's a helpful video too!
For my fabrics I chose to mix and match two different Moda Layer Cakes - Basic Mixologie (by Studio M) and Behind the Scenes (Jen Kingwell.) I think these two lines were just MADE for each other, don't you??
This is a great pattern for a beginner quilter. It requires some easy rotary cutting, and it's great for practicing those 1/4" seams as well as matching up seams when sewing rows together.
My friend Melissa (Sew Shabby Quilting) did an amazing job on the quilting. The design is called Spring Thing, and you can see all of Melissa's available designs here on her website.
You can see some other Layer Cake Checkmate quilts from the bloggers listed below. And be sure to stop by the Jolly Jabber blog to grab the free pattern!
