But, as you saw in my previous post, the most fun I had was with the quilting! Playing with patterns other than my "go-to" meander has really opened me up for more exciting free motion. Again, all these patterns I learned from Leah at her Freemotion Quilt Project blog. Thanks Leah!
Here are some detailed photos:
I copied the quilting ideas on the cake stands from the pattern photo. I love how this quilting makes the cake stand look more realistic.
There was a bit of applique, which could easily be done by fusing, but I needle-turned because I love needle turning.
The cakes were trimmed in ric rac, and there was ric rac around the perimeter, under the binding. Don't you just love ric rac? It makes me happy!
I think I neglected to mention that I made this quilt for her because she decorates cakes for a living.
