Perfect for a lap-size quilt or a baby quilt, I’m sure you’ll find a lot of ways to use this quilt. Watch the video tutorial below to learn how to make this.



  • layer cakes
  • 7/8 yard accent fabric
  • 1/2 yard binding
  • 3 7/8 yards


for accent fabric:

  • cut (3) 10″ x WOF strips
  • subcut (3) 10″ x 10″ squares for 9 total
  • Cut (1) 5″ x WOF strips
  • subcut (4) 5″ x 5″ squares


Step 1

Lay down your layer cake, then line one 10″ square accent on top, then fold it in half. Next, take another piece of your layer cake, lay it right side together over the top of that accent piece you just put, then sew one side. After this, open it, lay the accent piece down, take another layer cake, and do the same exact thing but in reverse – lay the sewn accent piece over the next piece of layer cake, then take another layer cake and put it right sides together over the top of that accent piece, and sew the sides. After sewing, open the center piece, touch the seam to the seam on the opposite side, and pull out both sides of this. Next, lay your other layer cake piece over the top of it, pin or clip these down to secure them in place, then sew them together. Press them nicely, and top stitch around the accent fabric in the center. Repeat all these steps to create more blocks.

Step 2

Next, take a 5″ square, fold it in half, put it in the corner of one block, then take another completed block and line it over the top right sides together. Sew the edges together and do the same exact thing on the other side. Lastly, do the same triangle thing that you did with the bigger square. Lay it out, take the seam, and touch it on the other side. Pull the edges, pin the whole thing, and sew. After sewing, iron it out, top stitch the center accent fabric, and finish the quilt top.
