Let Them Eat Cake

July is my birthday month, and it’s also the birthday of three of my Quilt Guild Small Group friends, my younger brother, two first cousins, my Brother-in-law, one of my best friends from graduate school, my boss…and probably another handful of friends and family who I’m not recalling right now.

Mine is this week, and it is a biggie…with a 4 in it. Anyhoo, what better time to whip up some sweetness, and share a slice of birthday cake with some of these sweet people… And, since I’m eating healthy, why not share a calorie free slice of cake?
This pattern was in a recent issue of Quilts & More magazine, it’s called the Sweet Slice Pincushion. Cute, huh? I’ve made five of these so far this month for gifts. It took me about the same amount of time to make four of them in assembly line fashion as it did to make the first one by itself. So, it was just a matter of getting used to the pattern.
I can already tell I’m going to have to make more of these throughout the year…and I haven’t made one for myself…
Just looking at them sort of makes me hungry for something sweet…
Go ahead, help yourself to a piece of cake…and have a sweet day!

  1. How adorable are these slices of cake! I love them! Happy birthday to you this month. What a great day to celebrate, my friend! Birthdays with 4s in them are fun, aren't they? Live it up!

  2. Happy birthday to you, young lady (from someone who's just a tad bit older).
    Love those pincushions. They DO look good enough to eat and too pretty to stick full of pins. I'll have to check out that magazine.

  3. Oh, my gosh, when I first looked at the photo, I thought it was a real slice of cake and was thinking how good it looked! lol

    It's my and my daughter's birthday month, too! July rocks!

  4. Love the slices of cake pincushions – the directions seemed very detailed. Did you follow them exactly or take your own shortcuts? Yours turned out beautiful!! Happy birthday!
