Jagged X Layer Cake Quilt With Free Pattern

Jagged X Layer Cake Quilt With Free Pattern | DIY Joy Projects and Crafts Ideas

Donna Jordan of Jordan Fabrics has to be my all-time favorite quilter on Youtube and this phenomenal jagged x quilt made from a pack of layer cake does not disappoint. Donna, as usual, offers her free pattern to this beautiful quilt idea on the Jordan Fabrics website. I love quilting all year round, but making what will become family heirlooms in the Springtime is very important to me because spring is traditionally the time of new beginnings and I love seeing that reflected in my art projects. So I decided to get a later cake pack in a beautiful Spring-themed array of brightly colored florals and try my hand at making this wonderful abstract jagged x design. This is just one of Donna’s beautiful projects that come with a free pattern and if you click on the free pattern link above, you will find many patterns by her company that are also free.

Donna Jordan, the quilting master, will teach you exactly how to make this quilt step by step, but there are two basic shapes here, one is the jagged blocks that will make up the center of the quilt. These are done in bigger sections and cleverly cut into these outstanding shapes.

Then there is the outer edge that is made from long sections comprised of small squares that are cut from large strip sections.
