CUTTING the Layer Cake…
A Layer Cake comes packaged with 42 squares so you will need to cut two additional 10″ squares from the coordinating yardage to make a total of 44 squares.
Select 8 of the squares and cut them in half DIAGONALLY.
Select 1 of the squares and cut in half diagonally and then in half again the opposite way diagonally. You should end up with four triangles from one layer cake square.
CUTTING the Jelly Roll…
Cut 88 – 10″ strips x 2 1/2″.
Cut 44 – 2 1/2″ squares.
Take 9 of the 2 1/2″ squares and cut them in half DIAGONALLY creating 18 triangles.
Take 1 of the newly created triangles and cut it in half to create 2 smaller triangles.
CUTTING the coordinating yardage…
Cut 2 – 6 1/2″ x WOF (width of fabric).
CUTTING the Fusible Interfacing…
Cut 5 – 6 1/2″ x WOF.
Layout your squares, triangles and sashings on point so you have 4 full Layer Cake squares down and 5 1/2 Layer Cake squares across.
Sew the layer cake rows together and the sashing rows together
Then sew all the rows together
This is what you should end up with once all your layer cake rows and sashing rows are sewn together.
Take the two 6 1/2″ strips cut from your coordinating fabric and sew the short ends together to create one long strip. Sew the long 6 1/2″ strip to the top of your pieced shower curtain. Press.
With the fusible side facing the wrong side of the curtain top, iron on the fusible interfacing. You will need to overlap the short ends just slightly to cover the entire length of the curtain top. Trim off any excess interfacing. This will help reinforce and make the top sturdy when you add the large eyelet grommets.
Place the 120″ muslin or queen flat sheet right side up on the floor and secure to the floor with safety pins or tape. Lay your shower curtain face down on top of the muslin or sheet and pin along all four edges to hold in place. Carefully trim the excess fabric or sheet around the shower curtain. Sew a 1/4″ seam around all four sides leaving only a 4″ opening at the top of the curtain. Flip right side out. Press. Top Stitch with an 1/8″ seam across the top of the shower curtain to close opening and to finish the edge.
From the top of your shower curtain, place 12 small marks evenly across the top of the shower curtain 1 1/2″ down from the top. The two end marks will be 5 1/2″ from either edge and the rest of the marks will be 7″ apart.
Following the instructions on the X-large eyelet kit, apply 12 eyelet/grommets to the marked spots.
Add a plastic shower curtain liner to the backside help keep the curtain from getting wet.
Hang on your decorative shower hooks and enjoy!
