Hello Friends! I hope you are well. I finished this quilt right after Christmas 2014, using Pat Sloan‘s The Sweet Life fabrics! These very bright, cheerful and happy (and very Pat Sloan-ish) fabrics were a joy to work with. You should be seeing them at your local quilt shops not too long from now.
And I am getting to play even more with these precuts from the same fabric line. Life is sweet… even if I have had to hang out at Germ-ville the last few days.
What caught my eye on one of the fabric swatches is the “needs cake” part! The cake part struck a a very sweet chord with me. You see, growing up in Asia, my parents would allow us to have cake for breakfast whenever there’s cake in the house! So, cake = all goodness! I have done the same thing with Miss Baby at our house, not knowing having cake for breakfast might be a bit off-putting for some Americans. Miss Baby unwittingly told someone she had cake for breakfast one day, only to be met with a few stares directed at her mother. They must have thought I was the most indulgent (at best) parent in the world. Nonetheless, cake will probably always be allowed for breakfast in our family, and maybe one day, Miss Baby’s family. It’s funny how we pass down things within the family, albeit a bit idiosyncratic sometimes. :)
Cake allowed or not at breakfasts aside, you have got to check out Pat Sloan’s upcoming line! Click here to view all the fabrics to start planning your next quilt. This line also has a batik version. Click here to view.
Thanks for stopping by, Friends! Now, if you have any “cake for breakfasts” type practices in your family, would you mind sharing?
