Happy First Birthday, Quilty Fun! Welcome to my stop on the birthday blog hop!
Quilty Fun by Lori Holt has quickly become my go-to book for fun, scrappy patchwork designs. Seriously, I would like to make everything in this book! The book contains clear, easy-to-understand diagrams for creating the row quilt shown on the cover, plus ten additional projects ranging from pillows to runners to quilts, all using rotary cutting with no templates.
To help celebrate the first birthday, Lori Holt has created a special, fun birthday cake block!
Mmmm chocolate layer cake. My favorite! I was so excited to print out the free pdf of this pattern's cutting instructions, and I immediately started sewing my birthday cake. But I liked it so much that I needed another piece of cake. How about a red velvet cake?
And because I have so many favorite cake flavors I just kept going! Anybody want a piece of strawberry cream cake?
Before I knew it, this happened. Twelve cakes with rainbow sprinkles sashing!
Who wouldn't love a fancy cake for Valentine's Day?
Or maybe a pretty birthday cake with fanciful buttercream rosettes?
Could I tempt you with a slice of chocolate mud cake?
Seriously, you are going to LOVE making these cakes. One would be cute as a pillow. Three would make a great birthday table runner. Or go crazy like I did and make twelve (or more)! Download the FREE copy of the Quilty Fun birthday cake pdf pattern here. You can also view all twelve of my birthday cake blocks on my Flickr page.
But don't leave yet because the birthday party is just getting started! Here are some of the amazingly fantabulous patterns in Lori's book. There's the full row along quilt that I made last year.
I loved making the Snowball Fight table runner. I really need to have this quilted before Christmas!
And the Quilty Fun book also has directions for Lori's signature bee pattern. Here I've reduced the size of the bee and made a quartet of them!
I do hope that you'll help me in celebrating Quilty Fun's first birthday. Pour yourself a nice hot (or cold!) drink, download the birthday cake pattern and start stitching!
Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to visit the Fat Quarter Shop for a copy of the Quilty Fun book. Their blog will also have links to all the other bloggers participating in the hop. And drop by to see what Lori is working on here. I'll see you soon!
