Anyone else old enough to remember the good old days when schools and church's would host cake walks at festivals or fundraisers? My Grandmother, Aunts, and even I would knock our self out to donate the perfect cake for these events. When our girls were in elementary school lots of times each classroom would come up with their own idea for games, activities, face painting and such during the fall festival. One of my favorites to do when I was the Room Mommy was to have a cake or cupcake walk. Those days are of course long gone as schools won't allow home baked goodies in the school house doors :( This generation of kiddo's are missing out on so many fun simple things, what a shame.
SEW here is what I am thinking. Anybody want to have a virtual cake walk. Sort of a cake walk, sew along, Quilting Bee? If so make sure and leave a comment sew the rest of us can follow along on your progress. Here are the lose rules.
1.) Purchase your pattern from Lori. I picked mine up at our local quilt shop some time back. I won't be doing a typical step by step tutorial for this quilt block. I try to share free patterns I run into often on this blog but NEVER EVER would I want to steal a designers hard work. :)
2.) NO SHOPPING for the cake, cake plate, or frosting!! I know its gonna be hard to resets but we all need to have a little stash busting ever now and then. This pattern is layer cake, fat quarter friendly. Pull out some of those oh sew cute fat quarters you just couldn't pass up that are taking up space you could use for some NEW stuff.
3.) Each Monday for the next 6 weeks Post (2) Cake blocks on your blog. Make sure and leave a link to your blog in the comment section sew we can all follow along!!!!
Simple right? The hardest part of this virtual cake walk will be NO SHOPPING!! Do not let this quilt block intimidate you!! Lori's directions are wonderful, if you can sew a 1/4 inch straight seam you can do this.
Last but not least I am in NO WAY affiliated with "Bee in my Bonnet" company. I just enjoy sharing cool stuff other ladies have worked hard to design and develop. Sew whats in it for me? Accountability!!! I need to have this quilt finished totaly completed in 7 weeks for a VERY special Birthday gift. Ya'll gotta keep me on track!!
