Layer Cake Project Parade

It's Layer Cake Day!

These are half of the projects that you turned in for the Scraps-Along Challenge last month.

Look for the other half on Sherri McConnell's blog, A Quilting Life!  

This Parade entry is from Heather M. She made this absolutely adorable basket from the By Annie Petit Four Basket Pattern and added a handle to create her version of the basket. Heather says she's eaten some of the jelly beans from the basket and this is what is left.  Too bad we aren't neighbors, I could use a few jellybeans right now!  What a cute basket, Heather!

Debbie A.'s sweet queen size quilt is made from Layer Cake squares. I just love the colors!   She also include some photos of her tips for organizing and storing Layer Cakes, that I've included below. Debbie says that she's recently painted and organized her sewing room, getting her inspiration from Sherri's sewing room posts. Wow!  I'm inspired by Debbie's productivity!

Bobbie Z. from Pennsylvania has also been very productive lately. She used a portion of a Layer Cake and added some floral fabrics to make this pretty block for Block 2 of the Half Square Triangle Quilting Life Block Of The Month from 2019.  She added big stitch hand quilting that she learned from a tutorial by Corey Yoder. Bobbie also included a photo of her storage method for Layer Cakes and other crafting supplies.  Thanks, Bobbie!

This fun picnic quilt is from Kate D.  She didn't want to cut up these Cotton and Steel Layer Cake Squares, so she simply sewed them into rows and staggered them to create this super sweet picnic quilt.  Such a great idea!  She's going to use fleece, instead of batting and tie the quilt instead of quilting it.  She's only tied a quilt once before, and that's the same with me.  It would be fun to tie another quilt!

Our prize winners this month are Bobbie from my post, and Kathleen from Sherri's post!

For the next Scraps-Along Challenge, Sherri and I will be featuring fat quarters.

So send in photos and descriptions of your projects, or storage and organization tips involving fat quarters before the end of May.

See you then!
