I am going to deviate from cakes for this entry and talk about what inspired my new creative outlet. A few months ago I was asked to design a nautical cake for my cousin's first baby shower. Unfortunately she was unable to make the trip from Dallas, TX to Missouri due to the pregnancy, so I was not able to design a spectacular cake for her to celebrate this momentous occasion. It was then that my mind began turning, and I thought, why not design a baby's quilt for the nautical room she was designing for little Cooper? I found a picture online of a sailboat I LOVED and that became the inspiration around the entire quilt design.
