Beautiful Moda Fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop

I just received a layer cake from the Fat Quarter Shop of beautiful Esprit de Noel by French General for Moda Fabrics (whew, what a mouthful!). But aren't they pretty? The red, green and tan colors go perfectly in my living room. and I love all the designs!  I'm envisioning a winter/holiday lap quilt.

I've never worked with a layer cake before, I usually buy my yardage by the yard, so this will be a new thing for me. Forty-two 10" squares, in 35 fabrics is much more exciting than just one piece of yardage!

Do you use layer cakes, or other pre-cuts?

The Moda Bake Shop had a free pattern, The Dark Side...or Not Layer Cake Quilte Noel  that I adapted for my quilt. I used fewer blocks and the quilt design will be off center.  Here's a picture of my first layout on the design wall.

I'll keep posting as the quilt progresses!

For more info on this fabric, go to Esprit de Noel at Fat Quarter Shop
