Layer Cake Fun

I feel like I'm avoiding something. I have no idea what, but I've started about 4 different quilts in the past 2 weeks, and I don't really know why.  I showed two convergence quilts the other day, and then I made this one this weekend.

And when that was done, I did this. This is step 1 of a new project. I didn't actually make this from a layer cake, but I cut my own 10" squares from fat quarters. It's too bad that you only get 2 10" squares in a fat quarter. Lots of leftovers from that - but maybe they'll become part of a final border or the backing for this quilt.

I'm trying an experiment here, so I'll show steps 2 and 3 as they progress.

In the meantime, I'm still working on the scrappy pineapple quilt, using those blocks as leaders and enders for all these new projects.


  1. Your convergence quilt looks great!! I made several of them about 5 years ago and they were so much fun. I'll have to pull out my book and make another one!

  2. I have never made a convergence quilt. I do feel the same way you do. I'm going to finish a couple of pillows now so that I can have that sense of completion. I really, really want to put a quilt on the frame though.
