Layer Cake Sampler QAL Week 4 {Blocks 7 & 8}

It’s Friday already (not sure how that happened), so that means it’s time for two more blocks in the Layer Cake Sampler QAL 🙂  Once again I have loved watching all of your progress on Flickr and Instagram!

Here are today’s blocks (and if you need to review the block piecing instructions, just click here.)

Block 7:

Block 7

Block 7 is a classic and would be another great quilt using only this block in any of the three layout options below.

Block 7 - 1   Block 7 - 2   Block 7 - 3

Block 8:

Block 8

Block 8 is one of the happiest blocks of all time…pinwheels!  It’s almost impossible not to smile at this one  🙂  I would love to see the secondary pattern that would be created if you used only the second layout option below in a quilt.

Block 8 - 1    Block 8 - 3    Block 8 - 2

Now it’s your turn.  Don’t forget to share your blocks on Flickr and Instagram (using #layercakesamplerqal) if you have accounts. Thanks again for quilting along and I’ll be back next Friday with Blocks 9 & 10.

  1. Hi there,
    Love this Quilt Along – but as a nearly new quilter please could you show a picture of the BACK of each block? I have trouble knowing how to press my blocks – especially the Pinwheels.
    Thanks.

  2. I just love your fabrics! I have a fat quarter bundle of the same but it’s hard to cut into it. Your blocks are just beautiful!
