Teatime Cakes for Quilt Block Mania

Welcome! Come on in and stay awhile for a hot cup of tea, a delicious piece of cake, and some quilting too.

Yes, the Quilt Block Mania group is hosting tea time this month, with a very sweet tea time color palette of bright pink, pink, cream, lilac, red, and dark brown.

With those colors, I found it super easy to design some tantalizing cakes to go with a spot of tea. Who doesn't love cake?

Personally, with this selection, I find it hard to choose which piece to have! There's a very simple vanilla cake filled and iced with chocolate ganache; a decadent chocolate cake with vanilla cream filling and red buttercream frosting; a very rich red velvet cake and in my version, topped with chocolate cream; and a delicate strawberry cake with cream cheese filling and icing. YUM!

Along with tea, there are other goodies to choose from for QBM tea time.

Stop in for a spot of tea with the other quilt block creators to collect all the tea time blocks for the month.

My Teatime Cakes quilt block is geared toward the Intermediate quilter who is comfortable with paper or foundation piecing. The pattern includes the full-sized paper piecing template - just be sure to print four templates.

Fat quarters are all that's needed to make one Teatime Cakes block. The unfinished size is 12.5" x 12.5", which means the block finishes at 12" x 12". For April, the Teatime Cakes block pattern is free for download through my newsletter until May 2.
