As I continued to make quilt blocks for my Old Glory Fourth of July quilt I traded out a few blocks for others that I felt worked better with the personality of the quilt. This particular block I found on Pinterest. You can see a whole quilt made with this block here, it’s stunning!
Here is the how-to for the Honey Honey Layer Cake Quilt Block:
Note: These measurements are for an 8″ block. Sew using a scant 1/4″ seam allowance.
- 8 squares 2 3/4″ red
- 8 squares 2 3/4″ white
- 4 squares 2 1/8″ red
- 4 squares 2 1/8″ white
Use the 8 squares of 2 3/4″ red and white to create 16 Half Square Triangles (HSTs) trimmed down to 2 1/8″. Click here for my tutorial on how to make Half Square Triangles.
Lay out HSTs and solid blocks into the Honey Honey Layer Cake quilt block:
Assemble each row of five:
Attach the five rows together:
One thought on “Honey Honey Layer Cake”
Pretty block but lots of pieces. It can be hard to make a lot of them consistently sized! I show the one I made here
Good luck and have fun!
