Heather just finished up this 53″ x 71″ Moda Cake Mix Recipe Quilt. There had been a lot of buzz about Moda Cake Mix Recipes. If you haven’t heard about them, or you have seen them but didn’t know what their purpose was here is an explanation from Moda;
What is a Moda Cake Mix? It’s a recipe for block parts that makes baking a Layer Cake quilt easier than ever. This unique triangle paper is designed to work in conjunction with Moda’s 10″ square Layer Cakes. Each tablet has 42 sheets – one for each layer in a Layer Cake – and a couple of extras for practice. Each pad also includes a few simple block and layout ideas – just add 1 or 2 Moda Layer Cakes and you’re ready to start stitching.
Heather used all 44 sheets in the Cake Mix Recipe #2 pad which made 88 blocks in all. This required one Pondicherry Layer Cakes by French General…Heather’s favourite. As well she used a Layer Cake equivalent of 10″ squares of tone on tones cut from her stash. She then layed her blocks out in an eight by eleven grid. Have a look.
There are currently eight Cake Mix Recipes available. These is a smaller version available as well called Cupcake Mix Recipes. Cupcake Mix Recipes use Charm Packs instead of Layer Cakes and their are currently four recipes available.
