Layer Cake Quilt Along 2010

You know a quilt along is almost here because the blog button has appeared!
Layer Cake Quilt Along
2 Nov 2010 to 3 May 2011
Starting November 2nd, every other TUESDAY, instructions for a new 12″ block will be posted.  All of the blocks will be made from a layer cake (10″ squares) and yardage.  Links to all of the blocks will be on this post, but instructions are first posted on my blog (click on the header at the top of this page).
Each block will be designed by a different person.  Every two weeks there will be a guest blogger on my blog introducing himself or herself and his/her block.  At the end you will have made a fun quilt
64″ x 80.”
Here’s the information you need to get started:
Fabric Requirements:

1 Layer Cake (or 12 fat quarters)
1 1/2 yards accent fabric
1 2/3 yards outer border
4 yards backing
2/3 yards binding

Size of Quilt: 64″ x 80″

There have already been some questions, so here’s some answers. . . .

1)  Will linear quarter yards work?
They should work just fine.  I have told the designers that they have 10″ squares of fabric to use in their designs.  Some of them will have pieces that are 10″ long at most.  I was at first thinking this was a problem because you only have 9″ of width with a linear yard, but you have 10″ in the other direction. 

2)  What’s up with the accent fabric?
The designers are not given liberty to use the accent fabric like they were with the last quilt along.  They were told they could use a small portion in small amounts if needed and it couldn’t be along the outer edge of the block. 

The accent fabric will be used to frame each block as well as a stop border for the entire quilt.  The fabrics I am using are on the blog button.  I am using white as my accent fabric.  Everyone should NOT choose white.  Choose the fabric like you would choose a stop border.  (The stop border is that first narrow border that stops your eye as you are looking at the quilt.)

3)  When is the first drawing?
The first drawing will be on Tuesday, Nov 2.  To be entered in this drawing comment on this post.  If you know what fabric you are using, add that in.  If you don’t know yet, that’s okay.  Drawings will always be held Tuesday night after the posting of the block.  Winners will be posted the following day on my blog.

4)  How do I get entered into the block drawings?
You get entered into block drawings by posting your block on a flickr site.  Here is the link to the flickr group:
I’m sure I have forgotten something.  If you have questions, let me know.  FYI, if you post anonymously, then I can’t email you a response.

Grab a button, and join the fun!!!

    This is my first quilt-a-long, so I’m really excited!

    I’m using Moda Eden, with Bella Snow as my accent.

    Not sure of my outer border, but I’ve bought two Eden prints to choose from. Once I’ve got a few blocks made I’ll have a better idea which one I’ll choose.

    Off to learn how to add the button!

    I’m in! I just posted the button on the sidebar of my blog! I don’t know what fabrics I’m using yet, but I’m looking forward to it! :0)

    Count me in — I’m so excited — bought my fabric a couple of weeks ago. I’m using Martinique by 3 sisters. I had so much fun with the jelly roll quilt-along. I entered it in our county fair and received a ribbon — awsome!

    Oh goodie!!! Cannot wait to get started! I’ll be using Fandango fat quarters. Have yet to select and accent fabric, but will do that soon.

    Thanks Konda!

  9. Julie
    October 1, 2010 at 1:04 am

    I’m excited. I’m going shop hopping next Wednesday to find the perfect fabric!

    October 1, 2010 at 1:28 am

    Count me in! I have no clue what I’m going to use yet. I guess I’ll have to hit some quilt shops! 🙂

  11. Bec Clarke
    October 1, 2010 at 1:28 am

    I have a serious Layer cake stash so I am certainly going to try and join in. A block every now and then shouldn’t be too difficult I hope.

  12. Staci
    October 1, 2010 at 2:05 am

    I am looking forward to this so much! I think I’m going to dig into my Lakehouse Tea Time stash for this quilt, so I won’t actually be using a layer cake, just wonderful fabrics.
    I’ve got the button added to my blog!

  13. Lee Ann
    October 1, 2010 at 2:24 am

    I am really really wanting to do this. I’ve already got the fabric, which is Pure by Sweetwater for Moda.

    I’m praying that I do alright as I never really done anything like this before and I have to confess, I’m scared. I’m afraid I’m going to mess up so badly! LOL. 🙂

    I’ll be posting the button on my blog; but, I’m not sure if I’ll be successful. But, at the very least, others will find out about it. 🙂

  14. Gari
    October 1, 2010 at 3:01 am

    Oh, my. I have never bought a layer cake so I will have to do some fabric shopping. Do I only need one layer cake? plus some yardage. But I so enjoyed the JRQAL that I guess I must join in this one, too. Thanks

  15. Rhanda
    October 1, 2010 at 3:48 am

    Sounds like fun! Will go buy the layer cake tomorrow!

    Oh I can’t wait to quilt along with ya’all again! I’m so excited! I think I’m going to use some Art Gallery that I have laying around in my stash.

    Already put the button on my blog, that’s how ready for this I am 😉

    I loved the Jelly Roll Quilt Along so much that as soon as I saw your earlier post about the Layer Cake Quilt Along I ordered a Fandango layer cake on sale and all the yardage I would need. I’m hoping whatever I picked for the accent piece will truly be an accent. I’m sure I was just thinking a border fabric when I selected it. Anyway, I’m really looking forward to it, and I’ll post the button, too. Thanks!

  20. Ingrid
    October 1, 2010 at 11:01 am

    Count me in too. Just finished the back of the JellyRoll QuiltAlong. That one is ready to sandwich and quilt. The button for the LayerCake is on my blog now. Don’t know what FQ’s to use, but I’ve got some to choose from.

    My Whimsey Layer Cake has been begging me to let join the fun & who am I to tell it no. The button has been added to my blog. I can’t wait to get started. Thanks for hosting again!

    October 1, 2010 at 3:04 pm

    i’m in, the only layer cake i have right now is Make Life by sweetwater. so i’ll probably use that unless i buy another one!

    I was so excited when I saw your new quilt along. I’m using Kansas Winter and toying with the possibility of using black as my accent fabric.

  33. PunkiePie
    October 1, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    Count me in! I’ll do this one too!

  34. Tammy
    October 1, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    I cant wait until this starts! I did the Jelly Roll Quilt Along and loved it! Because I have such a huge stash! I am going to use my red/white/blue collection of fabrics. Hopefully it will turn out kinda guy looking for my son!

  35. Sherry
    October 1, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    Am borrowing a great idea from another poster…I’m using my red/white/blues from stash for the layer cake sew-along. That way I can make a top for an american hero quilt and have fun with you all at the same time.

    Can’t wait to get started.

  36. Kim and Jim
    October 1, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    I’m excited for another quilt-along! Even my husband liked my quilt from the Jelly-Roll one, and he can be hard to please 🙂

    Not sure what fabric to use yet… I have some leftover squares from an old Moda Layer Cake, I’m not even sure what line. Or, I have a bunch of fat quarters begging me to make them into something cute. We’ll have to see!

  37. Wandering Minstrel
    October 2, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    I’m in, and I’m very excited, as this is my very first quilt-along! It’s also the first quilt I’m making without an already-decided recipient–could I be getting into dangerous territory? *grins*

    I’m going to be using a Dream On by Urban Chicks layer cake, and I will find accent fabric and order the border fabric once I have the layer cake in my hot little hands.

  38. Nathalie
    October 3, 2010 at 4:23 am

    Finished the top and back of the jelly roll quilt along and am excited to start this one with 12 fat quarters I got many moons ago.

    October 3, 2010 at 9:58 am

    Oh! Fun! Fun! I’m in.. I had so much fun with the Jelly Roll Quilt Along 🙂 I will be posting the button today as soon as I decide which Layer Cake I’m going to use!!

  40. Mary Lou Casada
    October 3, 2010 at 10:32 am

    Count me in, too! This looks like fun and a cool way to use those layer cakes I can’t resist, but always manage to just pile up! I’ll be using Kansas Troubles “Kansas Winter” line.
    Can’t wait to get started!

    I loved the jelly roll quilt along and can’t wait for this one. It kept me sewing and quilting. Still have to finish mine but will soon.

    I’ll be using Breath of Avignon. Love that fabric and was just looking for the perfect pattern to use. I think this will be it.

    Thanks so much.

    I want to join! But I have no idea what to choose. There are too many great fabrics out there!

  43. Heather
    October 3, 2010 at 4:00 pm

    I can’t wait. I’ve chose Origins by Basic Grey for my fabric. My accent fabric is one of the fabrics from the line, the grunge lemon yellow one. I hope that will work okay. I’m really looking forward to this one. I love this fabric line and can’t wait to see how it will work up.

  44. SheilaC
    October 3, 2010 at 7:25 pm

    Can’t wait!! I have that layer cake in your button, but I’m not sure which one I will use…

    Thanks for hosting this again!

    October 3, 2010 at 11:31 pm

    I’m so exciting to participate in this – my very first quilt along! I chose a Rural Jardin layer cake by French General. My accent fabric hasn’t been purchased yet, but I’m thinking a nice creamy tonal and my border fabric is dark red. The button is now on my blog and I can’t wait to get started!

  46. Tamera
    October 3, 2010 at 11:48 pm

    I’m going to play. I’m going to use Botany by Moda. It’s something out of my comfort zone.

  47. Merete
    October 4, 2010 at 9:34 am

  62. Kristy
    October 7, 2010 at 8:30 am

    October 7, 2010 at 3:02 pm

    I missed the jelly roll QAL, but don’t want to miss this one! I have a bunch of Sassaman “Sunshine and Shadows” that hopefully will work well with layer cake blocks. Looking forward to the start!

  64. Melinda
    October 7, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    I have a Bliss layer cake and all the fabric I need to do the QAL. I even bought Bliss flannel for the backing. I still need to finish putting the borders on my Jelly Roll quilt but I loved making it.

    Yippee! I am so pumped. The JRS quilt along was great and now I’m ready for another. Perfect timing Konda. Thanks!

    I’ll be using a fat-quarter set of Moda’s Blush by Basic Grey. (No blog, so nowhere to add a button.)

    October 7, 2010 at 11:41 pm

    I got behind on the Jelly Roll Sampler (sorry)… but if you will allow it I would love to join the Layer Cake group!I’m thinking Fig Tree fabrics…

    October 8, 2010 at 12:44 am

    You don’t need a blog to participate. There’s no quilt police here. If you want to start this quilt along when you have other projects not finished, by all means, join the club!!!

  71. Noela
    October 8, 2010 at 10:26 am

    I am going to use Fruitcake as my fabric. Just ordered the yardage to go with the layer cake I have had in my stash. Button is on the blog so will be ready to start in November.

  75. Kristin Wilson

    I’m in again…loved doing the jelly roll and I am sure this will be just as much fun. Will do 2 again, one scrappy and one I haven’t picked the fabrics yet for. As usual, the scrappy will be a donation quilt. Thanks for doing this again.

  81. sjoko
    October 12, 2010 at 9:03 am

    I would certainly like to join again. Last one was very fun. I am just finishing the quilting and then I will blogg about it and also about the new project. Thank you very much for the pattern I received from you. It is very nice :O)

    I’m in! This is my first quilt along and it sounds so fun!

    I’m a little nervous as this is my first quilt a long and i’ve only been quilting for a couple of months, but i’m super excited about it! i’m trying to decided on a layer cake…SO many choices!!!

  84. Wendy
    October 13, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    I’m so excited! I’m planning on using Moda’s Haunted Mansion layer cake. I love Halloween, so this ought to be fun!

    I thought I already commented but cannot remember for sure if I did. I couldn’t see my comment but that was with a real quicky review of your list.
    I absolutely loved participating in your Jelly Roll Quilt Along. My sister and I talked about our progress the whole time and couldn’t wait till the next square posting would come out.
    I look forward to doing this one as well. I have some layer cakes and yardage ordered and on its way here.
    Thanks a bunch!

    What a great idea. This should be fun. I plan to use French General’s Rural Jardin.

  91. Gari
    October 17, 2010 at 2:02 am

    I don’t know if I posted before but today I finally found a layer cake I liked (I don’t usually buy precuts) so I am ready. I loved your jelly roll BO2M and am excited to try this one, too.

  92. Diane
    October 17, 2010 at 6:07 pm

    I’m in but not sure of my fabrics-I’m thinking either something by the French General or maybe FQ of civil war repro from my stash…I have some time to decide–and Nov. 2 will be here in a blink! sigh.

  93. Quilter Kathy
    October 19, 2010 at 3:58 am

    I cannot resist this fun! I have a shop hop coming up at the end of the month and I will see if I can find a layer cake at these shops. If not, I will use FQ’s.

  94. Mary Grace McNamara
    October 20, 2010 at 2:41 am

    I’m going to sift through my fat quarter stash and my yardage stash and see if I can come up with a fun and funky combination of fabrics for this! I’ve never done a quilt along before, but I am in the mood to clean out and use up what I have so this will be a great project to help me do that! I’ve grabbed the button and will post it shortly.

    Thanks to all the designers involved in this project!


  95. Jeanette
    October 20, 2010 at 4:03 am

    Hmmmm I have a Hunky Dory layer cake that I bought for another quilt along and decided not to use. I might just have to join in

    I’m excited to quilt-a-long! I plan to use a Merry & Bright layer cake from last year (because I love this fabric and have tons of it stashed away along with the layer cake!). Thanks for the tutorial on how to add the button – I did it once before and promptly forgot how.

    This will be my first quilt-along, but I am such a sloooooooow quilter, I figure the two week timing will be perfect for me! I bought the Portobello Market (by 3 Sisters) layer cake. I had never even heard of a layer cake before this…I may be out of my league! 😉

    I can’t wait!! I was going to use my precious last layer cake of blessings by Brannock and Pateck for a couple of small quilts but it will be so much better for this quilt along!!! I haven’t even started my jelly roll quilt- it’s all kitted up and ready to go though so I think i’ll do them side by side!! Thanks for the wonderful quilt alongs!

    October 21, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    Oh Boy, can’t wait – I loved the jelly roll quilt a long so this one should be fun too. I just won 12 FQ’s in the Fall Giveaway so I think I’ll use them – they are Art Gallery fabrics.

    Hi, I am joining your layer cake quilt along and will be using a batik layer cake – I hope it will work with the block patterns! Thanks for organizing this, I followed along on your jelly roll quilt along, but you were almost at the last block so I did not join in. I do hope to make that quilt too!

    My girlfriend, Anita and I are both using Boutique. But we will choose our own fabrics for each block. When we’re done, we’ll divide up the blocks, so she gets some of mine, and me hers. We are using the same accent, but different borders.

    Thanks, Konda, for another fun Quilt Along!

    I am undecided on the fabric – I’m thinking light, bright with blue, pink, green. I may go with fat quarters for variety. Anyway this will be my first quilt along. I am looking forward to the experience. The button is on my sidebar.

    I found the last quilt along just as it was finishing up, so I am not quite done yet, but enjoying it so far. This next one will be incentive to keep going on the jelly roll project. I am going to try and use fat quarters from my stash for this one, so either asian prints or alice in wonderland. Either way, I can’t wait. These quilt alongs are a great way to learn new techniques, and I love to see all the different endings.

I’m thinking of going with Origins by Basic Grey for my younger daughter who loves green. I would accent with the grunge black from the line. I guess I will have to decide soon or just make two quilts. Right now I am working with Salt Harvest by Moda.

    I love the jelly roll quilt along. It was my first time using a jelly roll and I discovered how nice it is to have minimal cutting. I wonder if I’ll fall in love with layer cakes too. I probably will start late on this quilt along, so I haven’t chosen my fabrics yet.

    I am also joining late. I haven’t even decided yet on my fabrics. I have a group of fat quarters, called Quilter’s Palette, Fashion II Collection. I am leaning toward using them – there are 20 FQ’s so many options. I do not have a blog.

    I also decided to just use my stash for my blocks, will decided each time a new block comes out what I will use.

    Ok I just joined last night, and I have uploaded both blocks one and two to Flickr, using the link to the group. I don’t see mine on that page, does it take a while, or did I do something wrong??? I also added a comment on my blog that I have just started.

    So I’m coming in a little late to this quilt along, but I’ll catch up quick…promise 🙂 I haven’t done a quilt along before so I am really excited about this one. The two blocks posted are awesome. I have a fabric-store run scheduled for tomorrow, and a layer-cake is now on the list to pick up. 🙂 I’ll get these first two blocks sewn ASAP so I’m all caught up. Yay!

    Hello! I’m joining late the fun of this quilt along. I’m using Gypsy Rose layer cake from Fig Tree Quits and have already made the first three blocks (see my blog post today). By the way, I’m living in France! Thanks for this nice project!

    I’m also late… I did finish two Jelly Roll Along quilt tops which are in line for my frame once I get it set up. Moving has been pretty good but renovations are stressful. I am now thinking of what to use for this. I may use either Plaids and stripes stacks from connecting threads (I have two) OR Oasis stack with some other fabrics added as I only have one of those. It will be my birthday present to myself. I need to decide soon. 🙂

    I’m just joining today, and this is my first attempt at a “Layer Cake” project and my first quilt-along. I’m looking forward to getting started when my fabric arrives. I’ve decided to use the “It’s a Hoot!” Layer Cake collection. This is going to be such fun!

    I guess I’m joining REALLY late! I’ve never done a quilt-along, so I’m raring to go! I’m using Wildflower Serenade II – it’s a Kansas Troubles fabric line.
    I was able to pic up some yardage from the line this morning, so I’m happy about that!
    I’ll post my pics soon.

    Better late than never, I say! I’ve got some catching up to do! Yesterday I bought a ‘Love is the Air’ layer cake and also got my hands on some new brown crackle by moda as an accent color…gotta love moda!!
