    Default Quilt Block/Pattern using large print 10" layer cake

    Any ideas for a quilt design using a 10" Layer Cake where some of the fabrics have large prints? I don't really want to cut the large prints into very small pieces--like birdhouses for example. I have been sewing for 50+ years so that's the easy part for my new quilting hobby. My challenge as a quilting newbie is picking out a pattern for the beautiful fabric that's available in these big layer cake squares.

    Pinwheels maybe ? There would be no waste.

    How about Jenny's pins and paws? Or the chicken quilt https://www.sewcanshe.com/blog/frida...-chicken-quilt

    Search M*'s tutorials for 10" layer cakes for ideas. She has one where she uses the whole 10" square as a center.

    How about The Tea Cup quilt. It's fast and easy to make. I just made some of the blocks with fabric I didn't want to cut up too small....here's the tutorial done by Jenny's daughter Hilary. She did a great job.

    How about the M* Diamond Dash. The 10" squares are cut in half only.

    Here's one I did with Kaffe Fassett fabrics. Click image for larger version.

    Obviously I like easy! Can't remember the pattern name for the one using uncut squares, and didn't have a real pattern for the other. Both so simple. I couldn't bring myself to cut into the butterfly layer cake squares!
