Layer Cake Quilts

I think I like layer cakes more than jelly rolls. I mean, in the pastry world, I definitely prefer layer cakes to jelly rolls, so it's only fitting that I favor their fabric counterparts as well.

Some of my favorite Layer Cake Quilts from the past (even recent past!):

A Matchbox quilt, which technically needs a layer cake, a charm pack, AND a jelly roll. But it's still one of my favorites.

Piece of Cake 3 pattern by Thimbleblossoms. Super fast and fun.

Dancing Daisies quilt at the Moda Bake Shop. Super cute and fun. I might need to make another!

Just some giant hexies cut from layer cake squares using my Go! cutter.

My Make It Do Maxi quilt pattern, that showcases those big prints really well.

And my Something New Maxi quilt pattern. So fast and fun to put together.

Do you have a favorite layer cake pattern?


  1. How big are your hexies? I have the accuquilt die that does the 3 sizes, but yours looks bigger.
    Thanks, Holly

  2. I've only used a Twister pattern with my layer cakes. Your post offers me some wonderful inspiration as I want to cut into that layer cake I have posted. The Dancing Daisies and Hexi patterns have me thinking! So glad you shared these under our Layer Cake theme at Tuesday Archives! V:)

  3. Such a cute collection of quilts. I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried.

  4. What a fantastic collection of quilts - I'm a sucker for red and aqua quilts!
