Shortcut Quilt: Layer Cake Custard

Layer Cake Custard

This quilt is sure to become a favorite! It’s a new Shortcut Quilt featuring the Layer Cake Custard FREE Pattern and video tutorial! The Layer Cake Custard pattern includes instructions to make a delicious quilt that finishes at 63” x 88”. It makes a great gift and is very beginner friendly! Kimberly shows you how to make the two main blocks that make up this timeless beauty. Thanks to 10″ precuts (we used the Flower Garden Gatherings Layer Cake) it comes together quick and easy!

Layer Cake Custard Quilt Kit and Backing Set

The charming Layer Cake Custard Quilt Kit was made using Flower Garden Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics. We also have a matching Backing Set to help you finish up your quilt!

So let’s get quilting! Follow along with Kimberly on our video tutorial as she walks you through the Layer Cake Custard pattern step by step!

  1. they all look so wonderful !! it really was a super fast and easy quilt to make – thanks for another fun pattern FQS 🙂

  2. How fun to see so many color ways for the exact same pattern. Great job, ladies! I love this pattern and “short cut” is always good when you need a quick quilt.
