    Are you talking about the quilt he's laying on? I like that one a lot and have the perfect layer cake for it and also have the Dresden template to make it! It's so nice looking and different.

      Yes, wasn't that such a cute blog post! I bought the lemon tree layer cake last year and it is so 'yellow' and black. I used it for a hopscotch playmat. I couldn't look at it anymore. lol But todays is really soft.

        I also vote for the large tumbler. Once you get used to sewing them together it goes real fast. I made one.

        One way to extend the layer cake is to find a good neutral to go with it. Maybe a solid like Kona "cream" would be good. You could alternate with every other tumbler being a "cream" block.

        The only reason I would not consider the half hexie is that there are some stripe fabrics and it would be hard to match it up. I think small busy prints work best with it.

        You could also get 4 of the 5" tumblers out of each square. If you like the look of the 5" tumbler better than the 10" one.

          Have you heard of a cut up quilt? Pretty easy and gorgeous with a layer cake

                  Re: Looking for an easy pattern

                  Here’s another one. I always have a difficult tome cutting my layer cakes and try to preserve the “layers” as much as possible. I found the “Easy Layer Cake Quilt” on Craftsy, and am using it to make a queen size quilt for my dd with a beautiful Eliza’s Indigo by Moda.
                  It’s not free �� but it’s not expensive ��. I put the link below if it doesn’t work, but here’s the lonk

                  Happy Quilting :)

                    Oh, I like this. I just got my order from M* and the fabrics are busy, but beautiful and this pattern would show them off nicely. Thanks for posting.

                      I've made 2 of the double slice pattern, easy and turned out very pretty. I haven't made the 10" tumbler quilt, it's on my list. Good luck with your decision.

                        My go, easy pattern when I need something fast is a jelly roll race quilt, also know as a 1600 quilt. You can put a top together in about an hour or two, and it makes a great lap size. If you want it bigger, add borders.

                            All of these are FAVORITES of mine......Hope this helps you! No# 1 and No# 2 are my favorite suggestions!

                            I also tried to find quilts that measured the size of a twin bed as well. If your daughter has a larger bed, then you will have to increase the size of any of the quilts you decide to make!

                              Yes, I think the method to EVERYONE's madness here on the forum is to show the person who has asked for ideas it to post a few ideas...and then of course the idea "snowballs" and so then you have quite a few awesome ideas to choose from.....These forum members here at MSQC are the ABSOLUTE best to come to when you ask for suggestions as you have!!!!
