We're giving you cutting requirements for the FREE Farm Girl Layer Cake Block, designed by Lori of course! The PDF includes cutting requirements for both a 6" and a 12" block. If you're still working on your Farm Girl quilts, how fun would it be to add this cake block into the mix?

We asked a few quilters we love sew dearly join us in making this block. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for a list of the fabulous quilting bloggers who have also made one of these Farm Girl Layer Cake Blocks!
Finally, we have a new downloadable quilt pattern designed by Lori, which you'll find at the very bottom of this post - sew fun! This block can be purchased and downloaded via Fat Quarter Shop.
Kimberly had a blast sewing up the block in the two different size options. Aren't they adorable?
This small cake block mini is sweet enough to eat!
We all LOVE Aurifil Thread, so making this project with it was just the icing on the cake! Oh, and in case you're wondering about the fabrics Kimberly used, they are from Lori's new Cozy Christmas collection and the Calico Days collection.
As we mentioned, we invited several quilters to make one or both of these darling blocks. Let's see how adorable their Farm Girl Layer Cake Blocks are!

Kerry from Very Kerry Berry
Vickie from Spun Sugar Quilts
