Double Slice Layer Cake by Whatthebobbin
Double slice layer cake
I just started this quilt for my teenage nephew from fabric I received in a swap earlier this year. I've added in a solid black and couple of patterned fabrics from my stash. I hope to have this quilt done in time for his birthday in March.
Looks like I am going to enlarge the original quilt top and make this a queen instead of a twin. I still need to add a row of larger pieced blocks on one side or the other. I am liking it a bit more. This is thanks to a suggestion made by a fellow quilter in my guild. It is great to ping ideas off of others :smile:
I have too many WIPs so I decided to combine two - sorta.
The technique in the Feb Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays Sew Along reverse applique pillow inspired me to try to make a skull block for the back of this quilt. I like the raw edges of skull - I know it will look better once washed and more frayed. Not perfect but I've never done reverse applique before. Bonus - it's all scraps. He does look a little sad though. I may give this another shot.
Finished. It's still not my favorite quilt but I learn something from every one I make.
