Cake Blocks

This month I am the Queen Bee for the Sew Sweet Bee.  I thought I would combine my love of cake decorating with my love of quilting!  Since my birthday is in September and my Anniversary in August, I felt it would be a great way to celebrate!
Here are the five blocks I have received so far, I asked for a variety of different cake patterns to be used with unique touches added to reflect each person's personality.
Donna sent me a needle book that she made also.
 Don't you love how she fussy cut the cats?

 Sharon sent me two cute patterns with her block.

Here are all five of my blocks together.  I will be putting a sashing between the blocks and a border or two.  I'll be getting ten blocks and will need to make two more blocks and will make it into lap quilt.  Maybe I can find a cupcake print fuzzy blanket to use as the backing!
Have you ever participated in a sewing bee before?  It is a lot of fun.  I have been a terrible bee member this year though.  With teaching (working 12 hours a day), moving, and two vacations this summer, I have been behind on all of my blocks.  I have July's cut out, but school started this week so I have been busy with that.  No time to sew.  Things should start to slow down now though since I am only teaching three days a week now.

Have a sweet day!

The cake blocks are fantastic - I've never seen them before. They're going to make the cutest lap quilt ever.

What fun cake blocks, Missy. I love how they are all different. It would be a fun kitchen walk quilt, don't you think? Or something for your kitchen....

The blick's look wonderful. I've never belonged to a sewing bee. Just can't commit because there's so much to get done and not enough time.

Too much fun! No bees for me! I'd be the one that never got her block done! I'm a September baby, too! Birthdays are rolling around faster and faster! XO

Is there a pattern on line? I saw one from Farm Girl Vintage but it was not a PDF, just a blog post and really long to copy and print. Your blocks look great.
