Cupcake Celebration

Kathy and Chris from American Quilter Magazine caught up with us at Portland Quilt Market last spring and loved our cupcake pincushions. Now, I don't know how their minds went from 'cupcake pincushion' to 'cupcake wedding cake', but when we got home from market we had an email from them asking us to design a wedding cake quilt made from cupcakes. Hmmm, we said. That's an interesting one. So, Susan and I put our minds together and came up with our Cupcake Celebration quilted wallhanging. We loved it and so did Kathy and Chris. It is showcased in this September's issue of the magazine. If you're a member of AQS, you will receive the magazine. (Perhaps this is a good time to join AQS.) The quilt is fun and fast to make. We used Bubble Gum Basics fabric collection from Henry Glass Fabrics designed by Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup. We love her stuff.

If you make the quilt, we would love to have you email us a picture of your version.

And, BTW, thank you to Kathy and Chris. We loved working with you.
