Monica’s Layer Cake Lemonade quilt!!
Monica from @sewnbylovey on Instagram, made this quilt for her sister. The pattern is called Layer Cake Lemonade, free from the Fat Quarter Shop. The fabric is from Art Gallery and is by Katarina Roccella from her Skopelos Sea line.
This is the perfect quilt pattern to show off all of your favorite fabric prints.
I asked Monica to look at my quilting options on my website, and she close a few. I recommend my Lotus design from all her choices. I think it’s a great pairing with the fabrics she chose. Lotus’ are extra special to Monica and her sister, which makes this even more wonderful for this quilt.
Lotus can be found on my website here: https://www.quiltingit.com/shop/lotus
I recommend quilting this design around a height of 1.5”, which will put the width around 3.75”...depending on the boundary you set, that width and height could differ. It seems small for the height, but the width when it comes to a clamshell type design is more important.
Love how sweet this design looks on this quilt!! And that plus fabric ((above)) is my favorite.
Monica sent one of her favorite batting’s...I think it was an 8020 and I used 30 tex Antique Cream A&E Perma Core thread.
These beautiful flowery fabrics make me soooo excited for spring. Right now I’m listening to the snow melting off the roof...such a wonderful sound!!
- have a great weekend! Leisha
