Layer Cake Custard Quilt - Swell Christmas

I'm excited to share my Layer Cake Custard Quilt! I love the Shortcut Quilts that Fat Quarter Shop Designs - they are quick to sew patterns and look great! The Layer Cake Custard Quilt is perfect for large scale fabrics- like Swell Christmas. Plus it was fun to use Moda Bella Betty's Red for the background fabric!

As I started sewing the Layer Cake Custard Quilt - I decided to super size it so it will fit on my bed! Christmas fabrics make me happy - so I think each bed in my home needs a Christmas Quilt! Swell Christmas by Urban Chiks is one of my favorite!

Quilt top all cut and labeled. I like cutting the full quilt at once so I can sew sew sew (my favorite part!)

Taking pictures of a 88" x 88" quilt is HARD especially when a bit windy! 

But those red leaves are beautiful!

Of course Fat Quarter Shop also created a Layer Cake Custard Video to help you sew your own!

Are you sewing/quilting any Christmas Quilt???? I'm working on four quilts :) 

Have a great day and happy sewing!
