New Quilt Pattern: Easily Done - a layer cake pattern

It's time to introduce my latest layer cake quilt pattern - Easily Done. Besides being layer cake friendly,  Easily Done also uses fat quarters or 1/3 yard cuts.

With no sashing or borders, easy pressing, and very little matching, Easily Done goes together very quickly and, well, easily : ) - perfect for beginner quilters or for any quilter looking for a quick finish.

My sample of Easily Done, a layer cake/fat quarter quilt pattern, is made using the cozy fabric line Holidays at Home by Deb Strain for Moda Fabrics. Love this line for its homey feel and cuz I think it can be out during the holidays and into late winter, a must here in central Minnesota.

Easily Done is written in five sizes - 48"x63", 54"x72", 66"x81", 96"x99", and 108"x108".  What size would you make? This past week I broke up piecing this quilt top into steps, one step on each day, and I was really surprised at how quickly it went together. 

Day 1 - cut. 

Day 2 - piece blocks (two sessions - one session for each Block A and Block B). 

Day 3 - press blocks. 

Day 4 - layout (had help from some very lovely daughters). 

Day 5 - piece rows. 

Day 6 - Press rows and attach rows, press some more. Finished! (just need to get quilted : )

Happy quilting, everyone : )

PS: I'll share soon what I do with the little extra piece that is leftover from each layer cake square. Kinda excited to get two quilts from one layer cake, a throw quilt and a table runner quilt.
