Bloggers quilt festival - Little cakes quilt

 Little cakes
 size  is 60 * 81 inches
polyester batting
scrappy quilt, hand quilted
my number is 3 in Hand-quilted Quilt category

This Little cakes quilt was for very long time a secret.
I designed it for Praque Patchwork meeting in April 2013. It is a nine patch variation.
I started in April 2012 drawing the pattern. I was not in hurry to finished it. I slowly pieced it on my machine, basted it and hand quilted it. The hand quilting last for nearly 6 months. It was my hand work for holidays and weekends.   



It looks like a classic quilt.  I know, you have already seen very similar quilts.   
I used an Ikea fabric for backing. This backing fabric gives the name to my quilt. There is only food on it - so my quilt should by  food, too. - Litlle cakes. 
Enjoy it.
