I wanted to see if I could make a 'plus quilt' by simply cutting each square of a layer cake into 3 pieces. I was very pleased with the result and the lack of wastage was a bonus. The quilt is approximately 60" square.
In summary the requirements are:
- 1 layer cake!!
- 50cm of fabric for binding
- backing and wadding to cover 60" square quilt, add margins as needed.
