Texting While Sewing #3
This is my third and final entry for Amy Friend's During Quiet Time Texting While Sewing Contest. It is number 3 in a set of blocks that will become a wall hanging.
This one is made using Bonnie and Camille's Vintage Modern. I had a layer cake of it (pun not intended) and thought the stripe in a gentle pink made a perfect cake. I used the same Make Life and Sunkissed fabrics for the cake stand and the frame so that all three would look like a set when put together.
The topper of this cake is a tiny fussy cut strip of what I think look like strawberries, again from the Vintage Modern fabric layer cake. This whole cake looks sleek and modern to me.
So in case you missed the other two, here they are again:
I want to thank Amy for this great idea she had. This was so much fun to do and really made me work outside my comfort zone. I loved making these. And thanks to my daughter who helped me with the idea and the initial sketches of these cakes. As a baker, it should have been an obvious choice, but she pointed me in the right direction.
