Cut your layer cakes into fourths or 5″ squares. Next, lay one colored square in the middle, then lay four white squares on each side of that center square. For the corner blocks, make four 5″ half-square triangles. Once you have your 5″ half-square triangles, place them on each corner with the color facing into the center. Sew these blocks together and press to complete the shoofly block.
After sewing the block, cut it right in the middle, then turn it and cut again. Now, turn the upper left block, leaving the small square to the middle as well as the lower right block. Sew these together and press to create the disappearing shoofly block. Repeat these steps to make more blocks for your desired quilt size. After this, lay them out in rows, and sew those rows together to finish the quilt top.
