Recently I have had the pleasure of quilting another of Wendy's lovely quilts.  This quilt has been gifted for an 18th birthday present.  It is a pattern by Lori Holt called 'Cakewalk'.

It involves a bit of piecing and a bit of applique and is a great quilt to showcase some of your favourite fabrics.  In addition you can decorate the cakes and cupcakes with your favourite ribbons and ric rac.

With such a special gift we decided to use custom quilting to showcase the cakes by stitching in the ditch and decorating the cakes with different quilt patterns to add to their individuality.

Some of the fabrics featured hearts, so to add interest to the background filler I scattered it with small hearts.  Once the quilting was done all that was required was the binding and some further decorative additions.

On the reverse you can really see the custom work.  The stitch in the ditch around the cakes and the applique really gives the quilt structure.  Custom quilting always takes longer, but some quilts are made for it!
