Quilty Fun is Having a Birthday Party and You're Invited!!!…Free Birthday Cake Pattern from Me to You:) ...

It's birthday time!!…
Who wants to make a cake?

Can you believe that my very first book
"Lessons in Scrappy Patchwork"
is turning one year old this week?

It's been such a fun year
I have loved seeing my 
designs from Quilty Fun
on all of the social media
 made by you:)

It makes my heart skip a beat
knowing that you are having fun
with my designs and bits of fabric:)

I wanted to celebrate by
designing another 
Quilty Fun block just for you…
and it's a birthday cake of course!
to open and download my
 quilty gift to you:)

Then tie on your apron strings
 and make a cake to celebrate with me!

Grab some sweet fabric from your stash…
 and start mixing it up:)

Don't forget to use your
to keep track of your ingredients!

Measure carefully until you get it just right...

Bake at 350*…
and add some icing between the layers.
Don't forget to place a
 cute little candle cup on top
 to hold your stripey candle.

Place your frosted cake onto your 
vintage cake stand 
and tie a sweet bow
around the pedestal:)

Place your candle in the cup
 and now it's time to quilt!

I quilted mine with 
diagonal lines 1 1/4" apart:)

I thought it would be fun to
 hang it from the mantle in my front room
because that's where several of my
 vintage cake stands are.

Happy First Birthday 

The party has just begun
because several of my 
Quilty Fun friends 
have played along with me
and baked a cake too!

to visit the 
and the girls from 
It's Sew Emma
who are my BFF's and 
my amazing publishers of 
Quilty Fun!

There you will find the
 list of 
those participating 
as well as a link to see
each and every 
sweet birthday cake
made for our 
birthday party:)

Thanks to all of you
 for helping us to celebrate!

Have a quilty kind of day…
and don't forget to eat some cake!

Pin It!

Thank you for the birthday cake pattern....it's really sweet (and calorie free.) And this really is my birthday month...very appropriate. I have both of your books and really enjoy the happy photos. Thanks again!

Congratulations! Very fitting that I'm working on a "Quilty Fun" project. I'm working on my own version of a scrappy Town Square quilt. Love the birthday cake block and I plan on making one to use to celebrate birthdays here in my house. :)
