Shortcut Quilt: FREE Layer Cake Spools Quilt Pattern and Tutorial

Layer Cake Spools Quilt

Our Shortcut Quilt Series is full of precut-friendly quilts with free tutorials. Today we’re sharing the latest pattern release, the Layer Cake Spools Quilt! The spools form like magic with the simple techniques Kimberly demonstrates in the video tutorial, and you don’t have to be super accurate to get it right. Keep reading for all the details on this FREE Quilt Pattern.

The Quilt Pattern

Layer Cake Spools Quilt


The quilt pattern gives instructions for making Lap, Twin, Queen, and King-sized quilts, all of which are Layer Cake-friendly. To make your quilt just like ours, we have the Layer Cake Spools Quilt Kit, which includes everything we used, and you can also grab the backing set!

We are in love with Slow Stroll by Fancy That Design House for Moda Fabrics. This collection combines nature and vintage fabric styles with gorgeous florals and foliage making it a graceful choice for a Layer Cake Spools Quilt.
