Buck A Block, Layer Cake and 5 Yards

Did that title make you wonder what was going on here?  Wonder no more!  Three, yes three, quilts finished.    I actually have another one quilted but the binding isn't attached yet.  No binding, no posting!  lol

This is a 5 Yard quilt kit that I purchased at L & L Yard Goods in Madison, Indiana.  Nice little shop that I frequent often.  More often than my husband would like I am sure.

 Again, I can thank L & L Yard Goods for this.  It was the Buck A Block this year.  I think it turned out nicely.

 This next one is a design that I seen on Moda Bake Shop.  I motified it somewhat.  It starts with a Layer Cake which you cut into fourths.  I personally don't like the pinked edges on the precuts, so I cut 4 4 1/2" squares from each piece of the layer cake.  I also used a layer cake that 42 pieces so I added another row.  The original on Moda Bake Shop didn't include a border either.  So a Layer Cake and some yardage from the stash, I now have a pretty nice quilt.

Well, that is about all for now.  I need to get started on my November FMQ Challenge.  See you soon!
