Announcing .... 'Abracadabra' - a PDF layer cake quilt pattern

Boris, my supremely talented (if kinda weird looking) assistant, would like to announce the release of my very first pattern for your purchasing pleasure!


With a swish of my magic wand, I am very happy to present to you, my 'Abracadabra' PDF quilt pattern:


My pattern magically transforms a single layer cake into two quilts.

Quilt #1 is a single bed size quilt, and combines layer cake fabrics with a crisp white background.

Quilt #2 is pieced from the same layer cake, and is a smaller cot sized quilt. I have used a linen/cotton blend as the background for this quilt.

The small quilt includes a nameplate to personalise the quilt for your special someone.

The white quilt has been beautifully quilted by Belinda Betts of Eucalypt Ridge Quilting in a design called ‘Playful Paisley’ by Anne Bright. (Please say 'hi' to Belinda at her relatively new blog. I am in awe of her quilting!)

If you would like to purchase the PDF pattern for this quilt, please visit my shop - SHOP I say!! All purchasing details for the pattern can be found there.

Being my very first pattern for sale, I am hoping that any transactions happen smoothly. Fingers crossed! Actually, Boris, where's my wand? Perhaps I can cast a little magic over the process!

I am by no means expecting to make my fortune with this venture. If anyone other than my mother buys it, I will be thankful! I am just trying to recoup some cash to pay for all my fabric purchases really!

Hope you like it,
Bloom x

  8. Such lovely quilts!! I would love to make them but don't have a layer cake so I wonder if they would be able to be made from 10 FQ?

    1. I made mine with FQs. I just added a few extra fabrics until I had enough. I'll be making a table runner with some of the leftover pieces once the quilt is done.

  13. I'm in the middle of making the bigger quilt using Moda's 'Modern Roses' collection (only the ones in aqua, gray, and white, and with an all-white background). So far, so good...can't wait to see it quilted!
