A quilt for my house

It's rare that the projects I make actually stay home with me. They always have places to go and other friends to hang out with. They usually don't come home after leaving either, they're worse than a teenager.
The last project I have to show you that began on my 1 person retreat is the beginnings of an Arcadia layer cake quilt.
I'm really excited about it!
Maybe it has to do with this gray trend happening around blogland (I'm getting ready to start a gray project for one of my PIF's), but it's going to live in the guest room down stairs and will be the focal/inspiration point for the rest of the room.

After finishing all the strip piecing and almost all the applique cutting I decided I needed to order another layer cake.
1 just isn't enough!
Look at that stack it looks so small, I need to get it a little bigger :)
Bigger is better right? :D In this case yes!


  1. Way to go! Looks fun. I'm trying to envision where the applique will go. Can't figure it out. I'll be waiting for the "after" picture. (The gray is starting to grow on me which I think is odd because I am a brown girl.)

  2. i simply did not get enough arcadia. its such a great line...can't wait to see what you make! good for you for keeping it!

  3. BEAUTY!! I love Arcadia and just found some charm packs that were on sale!!

    CAN. NOT. WAIT. to see what you are making - love those shapes - - - what to call them??


  4. Alright, where did you get your arcadia layer cake from!! I want to use one for a project but cannot find them anywhere, in store or online, so what secret store do you know about?

  5. Jennifer your a no reply so I'm commenting here hoping you see this! Now brace yourself,this is shocking but I got mine from and all there Arcadia is on sale right now! And really I just found them through a google search.

    Oh, I hope you see this!


Leave me some happy thoughts~
