1 hour

IMG_9397

1 hour of free time,  1 layer cake, and 1 large drink of choice (plus 2 bathroom breaks)…

…yields 42 cute-as-a-button blocks ready to be sewn into a quilt top.

The fabric will be available in September…I snagged this layer cake at quilt market.  The pattern is Easy Bake…the same pattern I used with Aneela’s last fabric line (you can see that quilt here).  And yes…it really did only take me an hour + 6 minutes to cut and sew them…it’s a fast stack n’ whack quilt.  Plus I’ve made it before. :)

Pin It!

I'm not quite understanding why there is a pattern for this - isn't it just a disappearing nine patch?

Regardless I loved your last one and this one is even cuter! :)

Great choice for these blocks! It will show off the little scenes perfectly!

Sasha said...

Very cute! I really like it!

Barbara said...

Being a beginning quilter, I am very impressed by your timeline. And they turned out so cute!

This is perfect!!

Paige said...

I'm loving this line. It has the same cute factor as Sherbet Pips but more boyish, IMO. Cant wait to see it finished!

Caroline Saunders said...

Wow! If you have any tips on doing this so speedily that you can share, I would love to hear them. I have a 4 yr old and an 18 month old so I'm all about doing things in the 1 hour nap time window, like you! Love your fabric choice too.

How great is that! Me, I would need at least triple that time (and the drinks and the bathroom breaks) to get to the "Yeah I'm done cutting the pieces" stage! You go girl!

Nancy said...

Very cute and impressively fast!

Collette said...

Man, your one hour of free time yields considerably more than any of mine ever do!

Perhaps that's because I just might be, possibly, the tiniest touch lazy. ;-) I am in awe!

Jennie {Clover and Violet} said...

It kind of makes me sick that you did it in an hour...I am so slow! But, it looks great, can't wait to see the finished quilt. :)

Jamie Lee said...

Debbie said...

Linda said...

Theophanie said...

Cute! I don't know how you crammed that into an hour. I guess I need more practice!

Kellie said...

OMG.... I love love love that fabric. I just found a layer cake on Etsy, I'm so copying you!!! I have been dying to use the Easy Bake pattern ever since I bought it months and months ago.... finally I'm making a quilt for myself!!! :)

aneela said...

Whoa mama! you are FAST!! No wonder you needed that drink.
Also I would love to know how my fabric looks so much better in your house than it does in mine??!

Patricia said...

Such cute fabrics!

Gray said...

I am sure you forgot to mention the santas helpers--- 1 hour? Wow!

pangaloon said...

That's what I like to hear- A quick quilt. Time is limited when you have little ones.

I can attest to this pattern being quick! it sure is!
and @ tiffany...there is a pattern to this as it is not a traditional disappearing 9 patch method...it's totally fun!

Kellie said...

OK Allison.... got the layer cake today, going to start to cut soon... I hate making the first cut. I'm going to pull out all the "cute" scene fabric and cut them last..... I'm going to try my hardest to keep the cute little ones in tact. Wish me luck!!!
