Love those Layer Cakes!

Love those Layer Cakes!

Awhile ago Natalie blogged about the pattern she used when she made her nest quilt and I just love it. It gives that scrappy look without all the work. I have made two of those quilts. Here at Missouri Star Quilt Company we call the pattern “Altered Squares”. On this first one I used 2 Natures chorus layer cakes. It just blends so beautifully and breaths spring!

This next quilt I made for me and Mr D.  I used the same pattern, a four patch and a hourglass but instead of a layer Cake I used yardage.  Sarah had me make a small quilt using this fabric and I didn’t think I would like it, but, when I was binding it, I had is spread across my bed and it just made my room come alive.  I had to have one for me.  So I made this to celebrate our 29th anniversary and I love it!
