Party cake was a replica (well, almost, my family pointed out all the errors like missing a crucial gap / obstacle) of the floating obstacle course that she and her friends had traversed for the first part of the party.

I'm delighted with how it looks! 60" square is as big as I want to deal with when I'm quilting something though!
Its been such a lovely project and a good way to use some of my blue scraps!
You might just be able to make out the different scale of the quilting in the scallops and hearts border - much smaller and tighter. It makes the applique shapes stand out a little, which is what I want.
This is my 'round robin' quilt - laid out, basted and ready for me to start quilting. The ruler, plates and bowls were all to help me make some marks to guide my quilting. I'm planning to start with a some walking foot squares and than add in some free motion quilting.
This plan might have to go on hold for the moment, though, as I've just discovered that I'm almost out of the white thread that I'm planning to use. Perhaps I'll start and see how far I get!
Hope that you are having a good week with your chosen craft too!
