What are layer cakes in quilting? Well, in the quilting and sewing world, layer cakes are simply 10” fabric squares that are precut! The term “Layer Cake” was coined by Moda Fabrics, but it is also sometimes referred to as precut quilt squares and 10” squares. Many fabric manufacturers have their own creative names for these awesome precuts, but “layer cake” tends to be more commonly used. You’ve probably seen a smaller version of layer cakes before called “Charm Packs.” The difference between these two precuts is simply the size, Charm packs being 5” x 5”, whereas fabric layer cakes are 10” x 10”.
You may be wondering about how much fabric is in a layer cake. Most precut layer cakes and layer cake fabric bundles include 42 precut fabric squares, but sometimes the amount of fabric varies depending on the manufacturer. When you purchase layer cakes for quilting, you can get straight to sewing - no need to spend your valuable time measuring and cutting!
For quilters who haven’t sewn with layer cake fabrics and are curious about how large a quilt they can make, we have the answer for you! Typically, (not including borders) a single pack of quilt layer cake squares is enough to make a twin quilt. When you purchase layer cakes, keep in mind that you'll need more to make a larger quilt - two layer cakes will make a queen quilt and so on.
