Layer Cake Sampler QAL Week 8 {Blocks 15 & 16}


It's Friday, and that means it is time for another set of Layer Cake Sampler blocks :)  I hope you are still enjoying the quilt along, because I just love to see everyone's blocks come together! If you want to see all of the progress as well, check out our group on Flickr and the hashtag #layercakesamplerqal on Instagram.

Now it is time to see this weeks’ blocks (and if you need to review the block piecing instructions, just click here.).

Block 15:

I love the diamond shape that is created with the background fabric in this one.  Below are some other layout options.

Block 15 - 1   Block 15 - 2   Block 15 - 3


Block 16:

Block 16


After I pieced this block, I started to play with the other potential layouts...I really need to start doing that BEFORE I piece my blocks!  I love all three of the options below better than the one above.  Oh well, I'm not unpicking to re-do it now.  Lesson learned!


Block 16 - 1   Block 16 - 3   Block 16 - 2

Thanks again for quilting along and I'll be back here next week to share Blocks 17 and 18!
