I love to use pre-cuts in my quilt. The variety of fabrics in Layer Cakes are awesome--and make a perfectly matching quilt. The quilt featured was made from a Marmalade Layer Cake by Moda fabrics and 3 yards of red from Kona fabrics. This lightning bolt quilt is deceiving--it looks incredibly difficult but it isn't. If you're worried about adding the outer ribbon border, don't worry--the pattern has a layout to complete the quilt without the fancy border. It's a fun quilt to make. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Rotary Cutting, Sewing 1/4 Inch Seam SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished size is 76 by 86 inches. To enlarge it to a queen size, add an extra 5 inch border on all sides (requires 2 1/2 yards more red fabric).
