30’s Squared

I am so in love with this quilt!!!  The pattern is so easy, I and am loving it.  It simply uses a layer cake plus yardage, and since I’m always looking for patterns to use with layer cakes, this one is definitely a keeper.

The post wash measurement is 52 x 63.

For the label I incorporated it into the backing design.  I used a Sharpie and wrote on the white fabric.

I don’t often get pictures of my finished quilts with their recipients, but I am hand delivering this quilt to the recipients tomorrow, so hopefully when I get back from vacation I’ll post some pictures of the hopefully delighted recipients with their quilt.

    LOVE THIS!! I have a few undeclared layer cakes in my stash that I could see using for this! Is this a pattern you made up? Saw online? Bought?? Can you direct me to it please?? I am wondering how to get the white blocks to be the correct size with the print blocks. If someone has already done the math even the better! Thanks so much.

    So cute! I love it! I see that it’s Snippets, but what is the backing fabric? It’s really cute!

    CJ, I posted the pattern: http://southernquilter.com/2010/06/simple-layer-cake-pattern/ I “created” the pattern, but I’m sure it’s been done many times. It really is a simple pattern, and I just love it! I will definitely use this pattern again.

    Jen, I don’t know the line of the backing fabric, but it’s made by Timeless Treasures Fabrics. I used it on the Sruffily Snippets quilt too (http://southernquilter.com/2009/09/scruffily-snippets/). I got that fabric over a year ago on super clearance from Z &S Fabrics. At the time I didn’t know what I was going to use it for, but now I wish I had more. I’m sure it’s discontinued since I bought on clearance over a year ago. I also bought the same pattern in a turquoise color, so you’ll probably start seeing that soon! 😉

    Thanks for all the love ladies! :)

  • This is a beautiful layer cake quilt. Its simple but has a great look. The quilting on the quilt makes it really “pop” to highlight the quilts features.

  • Very interesting details you have noted, appreciate it for posting.
