Kassidy and I sewed up the adorable new free quilt pattern...
by It's Sew Emma
during our "sew night with Kass"
a few nights ago.
We used Riley Blake 10" stackers for our
Layer Cake Lemonade quilt.
(Sidewalks - by October Afternoon)
Riley Blake 10" stackers
are the same as a layer cake ...
meaning they are both precut 10" squares.
Each of the Sidewalks stackers
have 21 squares so we used 2 stackers.
It took Kass and I only 2 hours to complete the top!
Kimberly has a great video tutorial
for the Layer Cake Lemonade Quilt
Fat Quarter Shop Youtube channel as
part of their Shortcut Quilt Series.
to go see it for yourself:)
Yesterday my friend Kathy
quilted a pretty overall rose pattern on the quilt.
And I bound it last night:)
Kass and I made the quilt for Sophie.
As you know ...
she is my cutie pie granddaughter:)
I love to make matching things
for her and her dolls.
And of course…
this project was no exception!
So from the leftovers
after piecing the
Layer Cake Lemonade quilt ...
We easily cut 30 - 4 1/2" squares.
This is all we had left from the forty
10" squares that we started out with!
Use it up
Wear it out
Make it do…
Or do without!
The 30 squares became a
quick and easy doll quilt:)
Besides... who doesn't like leftovers
from layer cake?
You shouldn't let
one sweet crumb go to waste:)
Mr.Vintage Sock Monkey
had a quilty wrap up in the cradle:)
I'm sure that Sophie Belle will adore
Layer Cake Lemonade quilt ...
as well as the one for Dolly:)
Have a quilty kind of day!
Very cute quilt. Thanks for the link to the tutorial, but I couldn't find a link to the "free pattern" she referred to. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I love this quilt. Always looking for fun quilts to make using precuts. Thank you!
I just LOVE this pattern too. I still haven't made anything with my Gracie Girl Stash. They are just such large beautiful prints that I hate to cut them up into small pieces. Every time I see a pattern that uses larger block patterns I say - this is the pattern for my Gracie Girl Fabric. (Maybe I need to buy more Gracie Girl Fabric).
What a fun post! Love the quilts and the matching doll outfit. So sweet.
I love this Lori! Both are so cute and it's wonderful that the two of you made it together!
Gorgeous quilts both large and small! Same goes for those two sweet girls! Thanks for sharing, Lori!
What a sweet pretty quilt for a sweet granddaughter (and her dolly). This quilt pattern seems simple enough for even me to make, will have to give it a try :) Thanks for sharing.
Great work and before I think I have to purchase a layer cake I make a mental note to remind myself that I am able to cut out 10" squares.
Lori--Thanks for sharing this darling blog about the little doll quilt and the matching aprons for Sophie and her dolly. I love sewing for the 18" dolls, and your fabric choices are always perfect. As a 'collector' of scrapbook paper, I'm familiar with the beautiful designs from October Afternoon, and they adapt so well to fabric. Thanks for the ideas! Phyllis
How precious! What beautiful girls you have :)
Many thanks for the heads up about this quilt. I have just the layer cake in my stash. I will not print the pattern out, it is as easy as pie. My granddaughter will love it. I will have to find a boy fabric layer cake for Junior.
Look how big that cute Sophie has gotten. I really think she continues to look just like you. Looks like a fun quilt to teach beginning skills.
The quilts are super cute! But I absolutely LOVE the adorable aprons you made for your granddaughter and her doll! Do you have a pattern for those? I have some Bake Sale fabric and five little granddaughters that would LOVE their own aprons!
I think it's great that you and your daughter sew together. :)
I have some gorgeous flannels, think this pattern will be perfect!
Such a fun pattern. My granddaughter and I could whip that one up easily also. Thanks for sharing.
Love your choice of fabric. Perfect. Did you machine quilt it yourself? Adorable to put the dolly quilt with it.
Nice project! I love your colors.
Sweet quilts, but Holy Cow!! Look at that hair on Cassidy!!! Lovely, and enough for 3 people!! :-) Have a great day!! H in Healdsburg
Love the quilt (as well as the 'mini')! Thanks for sharing the link :)
Beautiful! What is the name of the lovely fabric you used to back the quilts? I love it!!
Love the quilt. Just wanted to say you don't look old enough to be a grandma!!!
Looks like Summertime in a quilt. Can't wait to make one
