    Double slice pattern

    Can someone please tell me how big a quilt I will get from 1 layer cake with Jenny's pattern. I know I have seen it somewhere but can't find the sizing. Thank you in advance.

    This is what M* said in the comments under the tute.

    It comes out at a large twin or small full sized quilt, Jan, and you only need one layer cake!

      I'm working on one now. 6 rows across and 7 down. It has one 5" border around and measures about 64 x 72. I've made several this size and it makes a nice size snuggle quilt. Just one layer cake and additional fabric for borders.

        Thank you so much. Now to decide if I want it a little smaller to get a matching cushion!!

          Mary, I should have mentioned that I put on a 5" border and my measurements were including the borders. I don't know what the original pattern called for as far as borders.

            I've done a number of these and find if you can add 6 more blocks to go 8 rows, plus add a border, it makes a decent size twin bed quilt. And you can cut 6 pieces of border fabric at 10" square and easily add it randomly throughout the quilt, just to make it a tad bit longer. Double slice is a great pattern to use for large scale prints, like kids prints, because your pieces of fabric aren't cut up so small!

              That's a good idea, Jean. I have a couple of metres of fabric which reads white from a distance which will tone well with the layer cake. Then I could put it on the spare bed. If I take it nice and steady I should be able to quilt the larger size on my DSM.
              Thanks for the advice.

                Hi,
                for the double slice layer cake quilt, finished (quilted and bound) but not yet washed...the size (of one I made) for the layer cake body of the quilt is about 58" x 49.5" (give or a take a tiny bit). The border is not included in that measurement.
