"Fantastic! Can never have enough of these precut fabric packs with all my sewing projects, Thanks!"
Nadia Novak, Brisbane, QLD

Quilter's Secret Exposed:
Co-ordinate fabrics like a pro, every Time!

Discover How...

NOTE: Actual fabric colours may vary compare to colours appear on your monitor, 
because of differeces in settings, brands and other factors outside of our control. 
Pattern placements may be different too because the pieces are cut at random from a whole roll.



" When I first began quilting, fabric selection seemed a little overwhelming....

Somewhere along the line I was introduced to a Layer Cake. And it was love at first sight.

Each and every square in the little pack complemented the others beautifully. Genius.

I still enjoy selecting fabric based on pattern, scale, and colour from time to time, but I mainly stick with using one fabric collection for my designs now."

- Camille Roskelly, quilter & author of "Simplify"





Let's face it:
so many of us dread the thought of selecting fabrics
for a quilt, whenever we start a new project......

Because choosing fabrics means stress and agony of having to make decisions on the spot..... which could be pretty permanent....!

You need to consider colours, patterns, and whether something go together.... and after all that, still wondering IF the person you're making the quilt for will like it at all... 


Phew.... talk about hard work, and you haven't started sewing yet...!




Imagine NEVER having another "meh" moment when you're so close to finishing your quilt, only to discover that you're not too sure about the choice of fabrics after all....

Instead, think about how satisfied you'd feel if the end result was just like what you've seen in the magazines or quilt shows, even better....

........ and EVERYONE commented on how amazing you are at choosing fabrics and putting colours together!!!


What if choosing fabric was easier than you think?

Hey, you might as well take credit for being AWESOME at co-ordinating prints for your quilt...
..... seeing you've done the hard work of sewing anyway!


Often the hard part is to come up with know the "how".......


Formally trained as a Fashion / Textile Designer - now a Quilter & Patchwork Teacher - I have spent the last 10 years teaching others and sharing the joy of Patchwork Quilt making.



Recently I had a conversation with a fellow local designer, Nicole Mallalieu (from the "You Sew, Girl!" fame)... about how people are amazed that some of us seem to have "a flair" in choosing colours and fabrics.

Since we both graduated from the same fashion design institute, we can vouch for each other that such "flair" was definitely more "nurture" than "nature" (i.e. none of us are born with the ability... we simply got trained...!!).


That means YOU too can have the "designer's flair".....
...... and actually ENJOY putting colours together!





There is no doubt that it will take some time and practice to get there.....

But the first step in becoming confident in choosing colour is to have the right visual aid at the start... this is the easiest way I know.

The Secret of creating stunning quilts EVERY time....
..... is simply starting with a Layer Cake!




Hmmmmm....

...... Layer Cake...... yummmmm


Um, not that sort of cake - this one won't make you fat :-)

What's that got to do with fabric?



This layer cake is made of 10" x 10" (or 25.4 cm x 25.4 cm) squares of coordinating fabric that come from the same collection of fabric (also known as a "fabric line", "fabric range" or "story").*

A Layer Cake include one of each of the prints, anywhere between 25 to 40 squares.

The back label normally tells you how many 10 inch Squares are included in that pack.



 In this case.... you get 42 squares!  




Take a closer look.......

This collection is called "Wishes".......



"Wishes is all about the many celebrations of life - from birthdays and anniversaries to the birth of a new baby. The colours are bright and happy and the designs remind us of fun times.

We were inspired by our own celebrations, both big and small. Each design represents part of the celebration.

Our favourites included the colourful "wrapping paper", the cute flags from the "cake topper" and the gingham "table cloth".

Although we love all the colours in the collection, we are especially drawn to the blue. It is our new favourite colour and we love how it pairs with red and green.

We also love how the collection is geared to both boys and girls and we think it would make adorable baby quilts. "


- Sweetwater




What's the Difference between Layer Cake & Charm Pack?


Note: Photos shown for size comparison purposes only. See other photos for actual item for sale.


In a word: Size!

Yes, in this case, size DOES matter (there, I said it)!



Layer Cakes are 10" x 10" inch squares.
Charm Packs are 5" x 5' inch squares.

That means:

 1 x Layer Cake = 4 x Charm Packs


AND...

Since Charm Packs are $19.00 each, 4 x Charm Packs will cost you $76.00!


That means when you buy ONE Layer Cake....

You get FOUR times the fabric - that's FOUR times better value!




Most of the well-known fabric manufacturers - such as Lecien, Kokka, or Moda - release Layer Cakes and other precut packs with every fabric line they produce..... It is an easy way to get variety in your project!

If you love a fabric line, it's a great way to get a little piece of all of it (and not miss out on any)...
..... in one easy step!



Here, check out each print in detail......

Next

*Note: Some of the more "useful" prints may be repeated as part of the 42 squares. This way you don't need to run around looking to top-up as you run out of the "useful" prints!



Have you fallen in LOVE with a certain range of fabrics..?

Consider buying multiple packs of Layer Cakes.....


This way you will end up with more fabrics to play with, and this opens up your options when it comes to deciding what quilt design to go with (and what size to make them in).



How does this Layer Cake help me with fabric selection?


That's the BEST thing about Layer Cakes - you DON'T need to worry about selecting fabrics!

Because Layer Cakes give you the ENTIRE fabric collection, the hard works of co-ordinating fabrics has been done for you...

You see, a fabric collection will typically include coordinating small / medium / and large scale prints, in several different colour ways. This gives your project the designer edge that looks like you've spend AGES on selecting just the right fabrics.

A well-known textile or fabric designer (sometimes a team) would have put in pain-staking effort to make sure that the fabric collection they produce are something that YOU will love, and hopefully inspire you to make quilts, garments and bags that EVERYONE will love!





When you purchase a Layer Cake, it's like having your OWN expert team of designers or friendly patchworkers picking out fabrics for you...!!

Hey, why not let someone else do the hard work for a change?



Once you have bought a few Layer Cakes and made a few things from the 10 inch Squares, you will find that choosing fabrics and co-ordinating colours / prints become less stressful over time....

In fact, you might even look forward to start putting together your own fabric stash when you go to fabric shops and quilt shows!

This is because as quilters, we all tend to be "visual" learners.....

By working and playing with fabric ranges that have already been put together by professionals, we learn to see what goes together, and what contrast with each other successfully. Another word, we learn by examples....

This is just like having your very own private tuition of colour and design theory, without any pressure and high cost.



Better still, you get to have heaps of fun and make tons of beautiful things for your family and friends too...!!!

(... they're gonna think that you are amazing....)

"I love Layer Cakes. I like that for around the price of a few metres of fabric,  I can get lots of different fabrics to go through and drool over.

I like that I can spend time at home deciding which prints I want to get more of (when I've worked out exactly how much I need).

What I love most about Layer Cakes though, is that I can take them to my sewing group and swap them with the girls there - we've all come home with something new, and inspired each other with all the fabulous things we can do with these yummy fabrics. Can't wait to get into 'em!"
