Layer Cake

This is the first stack of these 10" squares, a layer cake, that we have ever purchased. It is an economical and convenient way to get a taste of all the frosting, er, patterns in a fabric design line. 
Each square was cut into three shapes and then the shapes were mixed up.The result? No waste, and a very dynamic, some might say busy, and colorful little comforter.

The fabric is the vibrant Oops-A-Daisy by Keiki for Moda.

Thanks for the nice comment and the tip on cluckclucksew. I did not use a pattern for the quilt, just cut the blocks up and then exchanged pieces. It is a bit busy and perhaps next time I would only do each block in two fabrics rather than three. I am using a brown and white gingham in a slightly larger check for the backing and binding. I bought it at Joann Fabric and Craft. I did not have yardage of any of the layer cake fabrics. Happy sewing! Laura
