Are you looking for a simple, lovely quilt to show off those gorgeous layer cake pieces? This quilt can be made up using any layer cake and it'll look fantastic. All you need to complete the top is a layer cake, a fat quarter for the middle (or 1/2 yd if using matching squares for the corners - see below) and 1/2 yd/meter for the sashing.

This is a 5 page pdf pattern and tutorial for the layer cake quilt pictured above. Each step is carefully documented, photographed and explained. It's an easy quilt top to make, even for a beginner. It's definitely not complicated, and it shows off all of those beautiful squares you've been dying to use! All of the instructions have been written with a beginner's questions in mind.
There are two ways to make this quilt:

View A: The quilt in the picture also features 9" x 9" (finished) blocks for the outer corners, which will require a total of 1/2 yard/meter, a layer cake, and 1/2yd/meter for sashing to make the quilt top.
View B: Instead of matching (or contrasting would be striking too) corners, View B uses quilt blocks in the outer corners, in the same way as the middle section of the quilt. This View requires 1 layer cake, 1 fat quarter, and 1/2 yd/meter sashing.

It's a quick quilt to cut and piece - you could have the top finished in a day. The finished quilt is approx 60" x 60" - a perfect lap quilt. If you had more sashing fabric and another layer cake you could add extra rows on the top and bottom and a border around the sides to make a larger bed sized quilt.
For backing you'll need 2.8 meters or 3 yards
For the binding you'll need 15" or 40cm to make 2.5" wide binding
For batting you'll need a piece 62" x 62" approx.
