Make Your Quilt and Eat It Too

You may remember that I recently taught a group in Michigan how to make the Peony Star quilt from my book Remembering Adelia. It's one of my favorite quilts.

Apparently, it's a very popular quilt and I laughed out loud when I saw this -

If you go to Cake Central and read the caption, you will see that Annez made this cake for her mom and that it was inspired by my Peony Star quilt.  Yes, LOL, I can see it! How cool is that?

So I challenged  my daughter, the baker in the family, to make a quilt cake for me. Hmmmm, Mother's Day is coming up. I think I would like  . . . a little Hexagon cake! How hard could that be??  (Maybe by tricking her into making quilt cakes she'll take up quilting, ya think?)


  1. It would be hard to eat a cake that adorable!
    Okay, maybe not.

  2. I'm sure I could do it. I have not been eating a whole lot of cake lately so if someone twisted my arm . . .

  3. Hopefully you'll get to 'eat your cake' too! Great quilt cake.

  4. If it works let me know...cause I would love my DIL to take up quilting!!!

  5. How gorgeous, what a great compliment!

  6. Too pretty to eat. What a great idea!
    Don't give up on your daughter because sometimes our influence takes a while to show up. When my daughter entered her 30's, all of a sudden she wanted to quilt, learn to crochet and began decorating with antiques! I didn't think that would ever happen but it is great to be able to share so much more now.

  7. wow how clever is that, i LOVE it!! a hexagon cake yumm...yes please :)))

  8. That cake is so cute. I could eat it though, no problem. LOL
    My DD was never interested in crafty stuff, but now she is stamping, scrapbooking, and learning to quilt. (she is 32). Hang in there

  9. When I turned forty hubby showed up with a cake he had had made. It was a double wedding ring quilt on a bed and you could even eat the headboard. I didn't think he even noticed my quilting and I was so touched. I didn't want to eat it, we took pictures and then......sliced it. One of my fav. life memories.

  10. I made a cake too last week (see my blog), but not as pretty as yours! I did buy a patchwork-template mould for decorating. have to play with that soon!

  11. Hola, un quit y una tarta preciosos.

    Un saludo.

    Hello, a quit and a beautiful cake.

    A greeting.


Let me know what you're thinking . . .
