This quilt pattern has 2 great design options. Use a layer cake or cut your own 10" squares (42 total). The squares can be used to piece modern 9-patch blocks, or they can simply be trimmed to size and used as is! Works great with solids or prints! Finished quilt size is 64" x 72". The layout is deceivingly simple to create, and comes together very quickly. Use your layer cake sheets trimmed to size and have a quilt top pieced in a day! For another look, piece the modern 9-patch blocks as explained in the pattern. Then use these modern 9-patches in your quilt layout!
