Fat 1/4’s that is. A lovely design to use up those bundles of fabrics you couldn’t resist at the show/quilt shop.This is part of our Throwback Thursday programme where we revisit films from our archives.
No need to worry too much about the fabrics for this pattern – if your 9 fat 1/4’s look lovely together they will be great in the quilt. And it doesn’t matter if these are Fat 1/4’s from metres (as in Europe) or Fat 1/4s from yards (as in the USA) – you can still manage.
Great for beginners since the sewing is easy; and Valerie also guides you through layer cutting with the rotary cutter – a job it was designed to do so that you have lots of accurately cut pieces quickly.
The pattern comes in two different size blocks -but the overall design remains the same; and Valerie also gives you some alternative ideas for borders: Piano Keys and/or the use of the flat piping.
If you would like to know more about the Layer Cake shuffle – click here – it’s a very simple but effective way of changing the location of the various fabrics without tying yourself up in alternatives!
