What Are Layer Cake Fabrics?

Put simply, layer cakes are 10” fabric squares that are precut into the exact right size you need! The term “Layer Cake Fabric” was coined by Moda, but it is also sometimes used to refer to all precut 10” fabric squares. You can buy layer cake fabric in a wide variety of colors, prints, and fabric types, from quilting cotton to cozy flannel!

Many fabric manufacturers have their own creative names for layer cake fabrics, but “layer cake” tends to be more commonly used. You’ve probably seen a smaller version of quilt layer cakes before called “Charm Packs.” The difference between these two precuts is simply the size, with Charm packs measuring 5” x 5” square, whereas fabric layer cakes measure 10” x 10” square. When you buy layer cake fabric, you get a sweet treat for your sewing room!

Quilt layer cake squares are perfect for creating a variety of patchwork designs, quilt blocks, and other sewing projects. Since the fabrics in a layer cake fabric bundle are already coordinated, they can be easily mixed and matched to achieve a cohesive and harmonious appearance in the final project. Fabric layer cakes are especially popular for creating large quilt blocks, as the 10-inch size allows for more intricate designs and quicker assembly.
