Layer Cake Lemonade

This is a quilt I recently made using a Grant Park Layer Cake™.  The Fat Quarter Shop designed this pattern and made it available to you HERE.




With one Layer Cake™, backing, batting, binding, and a free afternoon - you can make this large lap size quilt.  Kim from the Fat Quarter shop shows you how - HERE.  It's even easier than you can imagine.

Gift giving season is upon us and this is exactly what you might need to fill out your gift list.  I can even help you out a bit in that department.  Just comment here before November 22nd and you can have this Layer Cake Lemonade quilt (made by ME!) sent to you.  I'm here to make your holidays easier. You're welcome!

This post is supposed to go up on Monday, November 18th.  It's just an hour before that date here - but I'm posting this right now.  We are having quite the windstorm now and I'm predicting we probably won't have power tomorrow.  If you are anywhere around Ann Arbor, Detroit, Chicago, Indianapolis, Cleveland - you know what I'm talking about.

We have a tree trimmer scheduled to come on Tuesday morning to take down a dead tree in the backyard.  Uh, if it is still standing by Tuesday.  I sure hope it is, because I don't see any possibility of it  NOT hitting the house if it gets taken down by wind beforehand.  Keep your fingers crossed.

So…. watch Kim's great video and plan your Layer Cake Lemonade quilt.  Also - the Fat Quarter Shop will have a 20% off sale on Layer Cakes!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too - that you have power to run your sewing machine.

Laurie

P.S.  It's Monday morning and power is on and tree is still standing. You can all uncross your fingers now. Thanks!

Siobhán said...

What a sweet giveaway! I hope your tree is still standing after the storms & that you don't sustain any property damage.

Linda C said...

Hope all is well with you after the storm passes.

Mary @ Neat and Tidy said...

I hope things went well for you and your home last night.

Would love to win this quilt.

Karen M said...

Love the quilt. It always amazes me how such a simple pattern can look completely different just by using different fabrics. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

Alice ~ Folk Art Primitives said...

This quilt would look perfect in our patriotic guest room!!!! Thanks for such a generous giveaway!!

Susan said...

Yes, its that time of the year. I live in Washington State and work for the power company. We had our first real blow of the season 2 weeks ago. A girl needs her power for late night stitching!
Be safe.

llavmc said...

Love this quilt and I could always use some help in the gift giving area. Thanks for the giveaway!

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Just love that quilt!!! Whoever wins it will be a lucky ducky!!

We had storms here yesterday (60 mph winds) ... if you got anything like what we had, I don't think that tree is still standing. :-o

Quilter Kim said...

Great quilt and would be lovely to win it. Hope all is well with you after the storm.

Pam P said...

Wow! Such a generous giveaway - thanks for the chance to win! My daughter and I were watching the weather reports all afternoon and around 2 o'clock we headed into the basement with our four cats (!) We were unprepared. We didn't have the recommended motorcycle helmets or the extra mattress. Our bag of supplies contained a few water bottles, some cat food, leftover Halloween candy and my hand stitching. My daughter brought her smart phone.
Good luck!

Love to Stitch said...

Glad all is well from this crazy storm last night, I too was involved in this storm and it was pretty scary at times. The wind! Amazing.
What a great way to wake up this morning to see this fabulous quilt long with the sun!!! How kind to offer as a giveaway, sure to brighten any day!!! Enjoy yours.

Vicky said...

Love Grant Park and your quilt. It would definitely go under the Christmas tree - for me! Horrible weather. Stay safe!

mascanlon said...

Want a wonderful quilt and the fabric is on my wish list. Glad everyone is safe!

pdudgeon said...

getting the most important thing posted first: so glad that you survived the storm with everything intact! My heart was in my mouth as i read your blog post, because i know how dangerous those storms were.

i've seen that new quilt pattern made up in other fabrics, but i love yours best, and would surely love to win that quilt if my entry was drawn. I've got multiples of several layer cakes in my stash with no definite plans for them, so this pattern would be a great easy and quick solution, and a much-needed stash buster at the same time. Gotta improve my stash buster numbers before the year's end.

Glynette said...

Lovely quilt!!!
Hope all goes well until the storm passes!

Mary said...

That is so sweet to give this beautiful quilt away. Thank you so much for the chance to win. I already know what I am going to do with it if I win. Hope so!

I love the quilt. It would make a great gift. I may try that this year. I'm glad you escaped the storm damage. It was awful in many places.

Mary said...

I would love to win that quilt - it's beautiful and the perfect Christmas gift for my 90 year old mom! You have the best giveaways.

I hope your power stayed on. I can do without lights sometimes but no furnace is bad.

I've been enjoying the parade of Layer Cake Lemonade quilts, and yours is my favorite! I have a layer cake of Independence Trail, and I might be using it for this fabulous freebie pattern.

Gretchen said...

I'm so glad you weren't blown away with the windstorms. It's a very odd time of the year for tornados. The quilt is adorable and I am in love with your new fabric line. Keeping my fingers crossed and thanks for the wonderful giveaway chance.

shelley said...

I hope your Monday has been better than yesterday. I would love to win your giveaway! I am going to link to the pattern definitely, right after I finish typing. I can make one (or two) now and file the pattern away for another day. Thanks for all you do to keep us inspired!

Love the layer cake you chose. Makes the pattern look cozy.

I would love to win your quilt. I recently used a Prairie Paisley II layer cake to make a quilt for an auction and I miss it! Your fabrics are so great- thanks for the chance.

Stephanie Zito said...

I hope you made it through the storm ok! Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous! Thanks so much for the generous giveaway!

Such a generous giveaway. Plan to make this for a friend that hosts a wonderful annual 4th party, over 30 years strong.

sndy1 said...

Such a great, easy pattern. Thanks for the chance to win your lovely quilt.

Sharon said...

Yep…those storms were a drag. We lost power for just over 20 hours. I was in my sewing room (basement) when it went out….it was very dark down there!
Thanks for another great giveaway!

helen said...

You cant beat red white and blue to whip up a great gift , such a treat

Robin said...

Quick and easy-great pattern for charity quilts also rnoel57@gmail.com

Carol Sc said...

We didn't lose power at hour house, but certainly many in neighboring areas did. I think some are still out --- and it's supposed to get really cold tonight. Love these easy quilts --- makes it possible to get them done. Thanks for the opportunity!

AJ GM said...

I have a trend at the moment, every quilt I've made has gone to friends or family (which is still great but I have quilt jealousy). I think its my turn for one now....and it would be one quilt to rule them all!!! :)

Karrie S said...

I live 10 min from Ann Arbor. That storm WAS crazy!! Our power flickered in and out, but luckily we still had power. My daughter's high school didn't on Monday, and she was ecstatic for the extra day off school. :)I hope your powered stayed on as well!

Thanks for the chance to win such a special gift!

Kimberly said...

What?? You are giving away your quilt?? That sound like a great, sweet giveaway!!
