    Default Quick and easy layer cake pattern

    I just got off the phone with my MIL. Her sister's great grandson has been admitted to ICU with a blood sugar of 485. He's a young teen and was terrified that he was going to die.

    Anyway, I have a layer cake that's a beautiful rainbow batik. My first thought was to do a double slice. It's quick, easy and I can probably get it knocked out and in the mail to him.

    Any other suggestions? He's a scout, I thought about the Hook that Jenny just did. I have some white I could use as contrast, not sure I have enough black.

    Throw out your ideas!

    I always like a pinwheel quilt.

    Here's another one I found. Very simple but nice if you have the right fabric. I think a boy would like something that's not too fussy looking.

    An older tutorial that I have used is called the Tea Cup Quilt. It is easy to cut and sew and has a modern look. Almost as easy as the double slice. Shows off fabrics well.

    PS. I did one with stone henge fabrics, turned out very nice. I think the fabrics in her tutorial are a bit busy, but with your Batiks, it would look good.

    I think something that would go with your
    rainbow batik would be bright solids. A star quilt would
    work using your rainbow for the points
    and solid red and blue for the-center block.
    Great colors for a boys quilt.
