Just Desserts

My grandpa had a bakery, my uncle has it now. When I was really little they would put me in big mixing bowl while my mom decorated cakes. This quilt is inspired by my bakery experience. Pies and petifores all done up in Sew and Sew by Chloe's Closet for Moda,
 The pies remind me of my grandpa who liked to say he only like two kinds of pie; hot and cold. The cakes for my mom who always made great cakes for our birthdays and weddings.
 And I'm happy to announce it is in the current issue of Fons and Porter's Quilting Quickly.
Linking up with Sarah and Amanda Jean to celebrate.
