A friend of mine owns a bakery, and recently had their first baby! What better gift to give a baker’s baby daughter than a cupcake quilt!?
I used vintage sheets for all the prints– they were so fun to work with and so soft!
Every time Davin (my son) came into my studio while I was working on this, he’d say, “That cupcake looks good enough to eat!” Too sweet. I promptly discouraged him from eating fabric. Each time. We have lots of cyclical jokes, he and I.
I used Kona Ash for the grey– It really complimented the vintage fabrics, and, I think, gave it a more modern look, as opposed to the classic white.
Those flowers from the vines in my backyard leapt onto the backing!
