Cake and Blocks

A nice simple 6 1/2" block from Kathryn Kerr for the Aves BOW (23) this time.   We have just passed the half way point of our 45 week programme.
 We are now a household with two teenagers!

One of whom will shortly be sporting pierced ears, hence my attempt to model an ear on this fruit cake.
 I didn't try any thing too ambitious on the following day for a three layer chocolate and vanilla cake!
 Other time has been spent deciding on the right fabrics to make a quilt that will tone with this bed linen.
Decision made - these three fabrics (you can't see the almost self -coloured white dots on the centre fabric) with the dark coral fabric to be used as a binding, matching the pillow case.  This one has a deadline (another 80th birthday present!) so I'll be trying to complete it before the school holidays start, which for us is on the 19th July.  I'd better get sewing!


  1. Ooh nice choice--I love that soft lavender with the other two...looking forward to seeing this come together...hugs, Julierose

  2. I’m getting impatient- I want to see how the Aves quilt will go together - lots of lovely blocks!!great cakes too, and I’m sure the quilt will be much appreciated


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
