    I just finished a double slice quilt using a 42 piece layer cake. It was 54 x 63 finished. I did not add a border.

    That's so good to know! I was looking all over for that answer! That's plenty big for my grandson. I wasn't planning on a border either.
    You made me so happy

    I have made several of the double slice layer cake and I love the pattern; goes together quickly and easily and you can actually make one with yardage and only need about 6 - 7 different fabrics and it works out pretty that way as well...the only thing I do is add some solid colors to it to help rest the eyes....with some of the layer cakes it can get pretty busy!

    Wow nice! Looks very easy, gonna make the double slice layer cake quilt as my first "real" quilt project! Gonna go to the city anyways in a few, will need some flanell for the backing Since it's my first it will be for us and not a gift yet since I dunno how it will turn out ;D

    Thanks for an inspiration!

    i actually boaught a 10'' ruler just for that, and I like the idea of using fewer colors. How many squares do you usually cut out?
