The nine cakes are all decorated--some with hearts, some with daisies, and some with cherries!
And the iced cupcakes await on cake stands!
But one thing hasn't been done yet...I need to layer them all together, and it must be done today. Farmer's Market begins at 7 a.m. Saturday morning, and our arrival time is 5:30 a.m.! I'm wondering how I will ever finish in time!
What am I talking about you ask? Why do I have to layer them all together?
Well.....I guess I'd better show you a picture and stop teasing! Believe me...there's been no room in the kitchen for me this week with all of Sarah's baking going on!
So I baked some cakes at my sewing machine!
I've been working on a cake quilt for Sarah's booth--Sarah's Sweets! The pattern is called Cakewalk by Lori Holt, and the fabric is Flower Sugar by Lecien Fabrics. Isn't that a perfect fabric name to use for cakes?
If you click on the pattern, you can see there were originally 12 cakes...but since Sarah makes cupcakes, I substituted three blocks of cupcakes for variety. The fabric for those is from scraps:
I first saw the quilt idea over at Sewn With Grace, and Renee graciously sent me the cupcake pattern she used. Thank you, Renee! She also made her Cakewalk quilt using Flower Sugar fabrics, and I think her quilt is beautiful!
You can see Lori Holt's (the pattern designer) Cakewalk quilt using her very own Sew Cherry fabric over at her blog Bee in my Bonnet. Thank you, Lori, for a great pattern!
And Jodi, over at Pleasant Home, shows her Cakewalk quilt here.
At this point, I wish a long-arm quilter lived next door to me to do all that wonderful quilting for me ...real quick-like! I've not done free-motion before...so I think some straight-line quilting will be the order of the day.
