Sailing Away to a Brand New Baby Boy!

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. 

I made some changes until I had it just the way I liked it and delivered my box of materials to a wonderful lady who is a MASTER of the needle and thread.  She took my original sketch, the fabric pieces I purchased, and my pages of notes and turned it into a breathtaking baby's quilt I immediately fell in love with!  The quilt design would have translated beautifully into a cake design.  ...perhaps I shall save this idea for another day. 

Custom anchor satin stitched into each corner of the quilt.
(notice the stars and waves stitching pattern all over!!)
