Cupcake the Calico Cat on the Cake Quilt

I love to bake, quilt, and cats!  When we got the kittens four years ago, we named them Oreo, Custard, and Cupcake.  Cupcake loves my cake quilt.  
This first picture is my entry for the Pets on Quilts Show.
I am entering the Cats on Quilts category.
I told her I needed to take pictures of her on the quilt, so she posed for me, but first had to attack the quilt.
I have not finished the border on this quilt yet, but the cats have really enjoyed sleeping on it!
 I got the cake blocks from blogging friends in the Sew Sweet Bee.  I wanted to combine my love of baking and decorating cakes with quilts and asked everyone for a cake block.  They are all different!

 See the yellow cake block with the red heart that Cupcake is showing off?  That is the block Renee from Sewn with Grace made me.  It is very special because she passed away a couple of months ago.  I will think of her every time I look at it.  We never met face to face but she was a very sweet lady.
 Pippi is in the background and wants on the quilt too, but she does not like to share,

 Cupcake was hogging the spotlight!
 Squeeky snuck onto the quilt for a moment!
Here are the rest of the cats, the only one missing is Custard.  Yes, I have seven cats!
I have a sewing room, but my machines still end up in the living room.  Did I mention all of my quilting are done on treadle sewing machines?

The voting will begin in ten days, August 21, so be sure to vote for your favorite, which I hope is Cupcake!  Don't forget to check out all the other blog posts at Lily Pad Quilting!

The quilt is so sweet. I treasure my blocks and gifts from Renee, too. She is dearly missed....

With all those cat's names, you've made me hungry! I'm off to eat a lemon Oreo.

Love all your kitties and their names too as it makes me smile! Love, love, love your quilt. I have one in the mixing bowl right now but it could be years before I get it finished. Thanks for sharing!

Such a beautiful calico!

What a great idea to get cake blocks from a bee, absolutely brilliant. Cupcake has great taste! I don't think my husband would allow 7 cats in our house, he has a hard enough time with 2 at the moment! I love that last photo with all the quilty-cuddles happening.
