Layer Cake Quilt-Along Block Two

Don't you love to try new techniques in your favorite craft every now and then? I'm referring to something like trying a new crochet stitch by working up a dish cloth, or knitting a scarf with a new kind of yarn and a fun pattern you've never tried before. That is how I'm feeling about this Layer Cake Quilt-Along that I jumped into recently. It's a great opportunity for me to try making new and different quilt blocks, the kind that I would most likely never try on my own.

Here's my second block in this series...

Layer Cake Quilt-Along Block TwoThis block was designed by Vickie Eapen and you can find the instructions through this post over on Moose on the Porch Quilts. You can also read a little bit about Vickie and her blog called Spun Sugar Quilts. That is where I got the pattern for the giant pin cushions I made a few months ago. She does some really neat stuff with fabric!

I really love how this block turned out with the two different colors in the same fabrics. I am using fat quarters from my stash instead of a layer cake of all one line of fabrics, but I was able to pull out four different colorways of the same fabrics to use. You can see some of the other fabrics I picked out by hopping over HERE where I showed my first block for this quilt-along.

The next block should be posted this week sometime and I'm excited to see what new adventure it will bring.

Happy Stitching!
