Welcome to the Layer Cake Pop Quilt Along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. I am Denise Russell and I am so happy I accepted the invitation to participate in the quilt along, as it was a pleasure to make this sunny beauty!
The Layer Cake Pop pattern is perfect for featuring gorgeous prints like these and it is very easy, so this quilt came together super fast. I used a layer cake of Kaffe Collective Spicy Palette and, I think, the perfect background color to make all of Kaffe‘s colors pop: yellow!
The yellow fabric is organic cotton by Cloud 9 Fabrics, of which I have an entire bolt. Our days here have been so cloudy and snowy – nothing like lots of bright colors to cheer us up!
Toby the photobomber was having a ball playing with the snow while my husband held the quilt for the photograph, which also shows the handiwork of Melissa from Sew Shabby Quilting. She chose a great quilting motif to add texture to the background, contrasting the straight lines of the blocks with a beautiful swirl pattern. Lovely, Melissa, as usual!
Speaking of background for blocks, tell me: how do you decide which fabric to use for background on your quilts? Leave me a comment for a chance to win a Spectrum layer cake, courtesy of Fat Quarter Shop.
Aren’t these fabrics cool? Imagine how your Layer Cake Pop quilt would look using this happy line! If you are a noreply blogger, make sure I have a way to contact you by leaving your email as “soandsoatanymaildotcom” (so you don’t get spammed). Winner will be announced on Monday, January 30.
Now, head over to FQS’s blog to see all the other Layer Cake Pop quilts by participating bloggers.
