Double Cut Layer Cake II

I had a Me and My Sister Design layer cake called Rainy Day by Moda. First I decided to make a quilt with the Double Cut Layer Cake pattern. Then I decided that I could add borders and make two quilts.You can read that whole story here

More about the first quilt, shown below, can be found here.

This is the second quilt - Double Cut Layer Cake II.

I only added one border on this donation quilt that finished at 43" by 52". It has Dream Cotton batting. 

I free-motion quilted this with a carnation motif using 50-wt Aurifil #2000 off-white thread. The thread blended so well that, at times, I really had a difficult time seeing what I was doing. This motif gives great texture.

The back is a soft blue and contains one of the leftover blocks that I separated into the original four pieces. (One of the pieces really blends in in the photo below.) It also contains some of the border fabric.

We woke up to more snow this morning. It is now pretty much gone but only 35 degrees and windy. It's been a good day to work on garage sale stuff for a few hours and then do some quilting.

  1. Pretty quilt finish. You are doing great at plugging away on your donation quilts. You might have more this year in December to donate!
