“Eat cake…” or, in other words, “live life to the fullest!” This pattern was designed by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet. I saw this on her blog a few months ago and absolutely knew I would be making this project one day! What I didn’t know then was that I would be so incredibly lucky as to be able to have instruction from Lori as I made it. I got the kit and pattern for my project from American Quilting–and absolutely love every fabric used!
I appreciate the tips and techniques Lori shared with us at our get together the other day; I was able to see and learn some things I’d never quite fully understood before. I really enjoy the portability of applique’ (I even worked on this at my son’s track meet yesterday) but have often lacked the confidence to make some of the projects I’ve wanted to attempt. Now, thanks to Lori, I have a new enthusiasm for my applique’ “to do” list! Lori has designed many amazing quilts…you can see them all on the sidebar of her blog…now to just decide which applique’ project I want to start next! Hope you have a great week!
That is totally awesome…I love the cake and it is so great to learn something new and have help at the same time.
Oh how CUTE! Love it!
Gorgeous..I will head over for a look as that would look great at my place!

Oh and it is just adorable! How lucky to learn applique from such a talented quilter! 🙂
SWEET!!! Lori's patterns are so charming and fun.
I agree, because of Lori I now feel more confident to start a more detailed applique project.

Sherri ~ It looks so great! I have got to get busy and finish mine this week. Lori is a wonderful teacher and she also gave me a new love of applique. We are so blessed to have been with her in St George.
What a thrill to learn from such an expert! That is such a lovely cake. I especially love what the saying represents.
Very cute – lucky you to take a class with Lori. I'm in constant awe of her talent.

I love that pattern too. I bought the kit and took the class from Lori during our American Quilting Retreat. I'm glad you were able to meet with my friends and I'm just sad I couldn't be there too. Have a great week.
I saw the "Eat Cake" quilt on Lori's blog. It is cute as can be.
IS VERY GOOD..............................
