Has It Been That Long?????????????

So it has been over 3 months since I posted anything.  Life does get crazy sometimes and juggling priorities can be a challange.  The one cake decorating class turned into 4 plus all the time I spent on the internet learning from videos and blogs.  To be sure my customer quilts didn’t get lost in the shuffle, some other things had to be put on the back burner.  This blog was one of them.

Class is over though cake decorating is not.  My reason for taking the classes was to make myself a pretty birthday cake which will happen next month.  In the meantime, I thought I would start posting cakes and quilts that I have been working on.  So today, here’s one of each!  First a quilt and then a wedding cake.  (Click on a picture for info on the pictures.)  The back of the quilt was Minkie.  Oh so soft.  I hated to give it back to her.

  1. Minkee stretches alot in one direction. If you are loading it on a standup quilting machine, put the direction with the greatest stretch side to side, not on the length of the quilt. If you are piecing the backing, be sure the grain runs in the same direction on all pieces. I also used batting and had to raise my hopping foot to accommodate the thickness. I’m sure you’ll do just fine.
