    Help me decide on quilt pattern for layer cake!

    A while ago I bought the Ornamental Splendor layer cake while it was on sale. I would like to make a quilt to be raffled off for a nonprofit organization I belong to, but I'm wondering what pattern would be better. My go to layer cake pattern is the Double Slice, but I was thinking of doing it with 1 1/2" sashing between each piece for a variation. But then I saw the Lattice Quilt pattern on YouTube recently and was wondering if that would be better? Here is a picture of the fabrics in the collection: OrnamentalSplendor.jpg

      I used to like the lattice, but the more I see them I find myself just staring at the criss crosses. I like the idea of just the sashing to show off the beautiful fabrics.

        Overly simple,,, but this makes up very nicely and was loved by almost everyone i showed it too.... Actually looks better without the mixed sashing,,, but that part is whatever you choose... just thought i would share, in case..) GB

          I like the look of the lattice, but you should go with what you like best!

          I cut it twice and it was still too short!

            This would be nice with the right color corners.

                I like it also. The individual blocks look pretty big, think they were cut at 9 1/2". What size would the corner triangles be cut, 3 1/2" or larger?

                  I have a blue batik layer cake that would be pretty with this pattern. I just need to clean my sewing space!

                    I just made this one from my Cardinal Reflections layer cake. You need 10 lights for the sashing. The sashing blocks are cut 2" x 10", and the cornerstones are 2" x 2". You'll need 1/2 yard for the inner 2" border, and then your outer border you'll need to figure out depending on your width. I purchased 1.25 yards for a 6" border. Cardinal REflections.jpg

                      This is kind of what I had in mind, but I think I like it even better! Looks like you cut them all in half, then cut one stack in half again. Then sash them all. LayerCakeQuilt.jpg

                          Sometimes I like the fabrics so well, I don't want to cut them up... in one case... I made a Falling Layer Cake... it worked well and I really like it. It also makes one Layer Cake go much farther.. and a bigger quilt. It was really easy too.

                            These are such good suggestions!

                            Hulamoon, Could you please tell the name of the quilt you suggested? I love it. Thank you in advance.
