Shortcut Quilt: Layer Cake Shake

Let’s shake things up! Our newest addition to the Shortcut Quilt Series, Layer Cake Shake, is here! You can start sewing Shortcut Quilts right away thanks to their easy designs using precuts! Our Shortcut Quilt patterns are always free and they come with a Fat Quarter Shop YouTube video tutorial.

The Layer Cake Shake Quilt Pattern


Layer Cake Shake is a colorful quilt perfect for a beginner to sew. It is designed in two sizes, lap and queen. With a Layer Cake or two and some background fabric, this quilt goes together easily! Large squares and half-square triangles let the fabrics shine. Your quilt can be just like ours if you pick up the Layer Cake Shake Quilt Kit and matching backing set.

We sewed with Noah’s Ark by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda Fabrics because it’s a lovely collection full of fun designs of curious critters and eye-catching hues that are perfect for gifting to little ones. We can’t wait to gift it at the next baby shower!
