    What to do with a layer cake.....

    I'm a newbie quilter and I got the Grandale layer cake a few weeks ago when it was the daily deal. Ended up going back a few days later and got some more material for backing and binding. Any patterns suggestions on what to do with it? Don't want anything too difficult, but not too plain either. Thinking about getting a plain white layer cake for some background, but I don't really wanna order more fabric. I'm currently hiding all my fabric from my husband so he won't know I'm on a spending binge! haha

    Here is a link on ModaBakeShop for layer cake patterns. I like this site because they sort out their patterns by precut size.

      Go on you tube and type in Quilt Snips, or Missouri Star Quilt Snips. These are abbreviated videos that Jenny does if you want just a fast peek and if you find something you like you can also pull up the full length video. Or get the Missouri Star app and type in layer cakes and a bunch will come up. And I laughed when I saw your comment about hiding your packages from DH. Everyone here knows all about doing that!!!

        Got two packages today... no more hiding here. Just excited to get back to work on things I love to do.... and I just ordered a panel to hang on my kitchen door.

          One of my favorite layer cake patterns was the first one I made from Jenny's tutorials called Double slice layer cake. It is simple to make, and shows off the fabrics in the layer cake very well, because the pieces aren't cut up too small.

            My thoughts exactly! I love the DSLC and it is a great beginner pattern. Nothing extra but backing and binding required!

              I bought the same layer cake and haven't decided what to make with it yet. Double slice would be pretty.

                I agree Double Slice LC would be a very easy and pretty pattern to use that pretty fabric.

                    ok guys, double slice it is!! thanks! I was considering the Alter Ego pattern, but I think the double slice will be a little easier for me. I really really wanted to do the lattice quilt with it, but I don't think I'm ready to tackle all those lattice borders.

                        Got the top finished! Hope to get it basted and quilted on Friday.
