My grandaughter Ishta and her husband Evan both turned 30 this year. Their birthdays are within a few days of each other. So I decided to make them a quilt for their birthdays.
I wanted this quilt to be a little wider than the size I usually make so I added 4 borders. I didn’t have a full layer cake pack so I took squares from a couple of different packs and also cut some of my own stash into 10″ squares to add to the mix, and I was really happy with how it turned out.
- This ended up being quite a large quilt 90″ x 110″. Thank goodness Chris has a large quilting machine.
You can see the borders and the beautiful quilting detail in the photo below.
These are the finished sizes for the border:
- Border 1 – 2″
- Border 2 – 4″
- border 3 – 6″
- Border 4 -5″
- I used the dark grey for the binding as well as the last border.
- I think the cream coloured backing suits this quilt.
The quilt was quilted by Chris from ‘Sew ‘n’ Sew Sisters‘ here in Australia. I highly recommend Chris, her quilting is beautiful and really showcases even a simple layer cake quilt like this one.
