Layer Cake Lemonade Anniversary!

Happy anniversary to one of our favorite Shortcut Quilts, Layer Cake Lemonade! This tasty quilt is the perfect way to use up all of those layer cakes we have laying around our sewing room. Watch Kimberly's video tutorial to see how you can make this super quick quilt. 

For our anniversary quilt, we chose to create our version with the Purebred collection by Erin Michael for Moda Fabrics. And YES! We have quilt kits and backing sets available at our shop!

But we didn't stop there. We also transformed our Layer Cake Lemonade pattern using Charm Packs and Mini Charm Packs! Cute right?
