I meant to show you this before now! Once again time is getting away from me. This is a mini quilt I made for the October birthday girl in the #CanuckBdayClub on Instagram. She goes by MelroseCakes online and she is a cake decorator by trade but she is also a quilter. I combined her two loves in this mini quilt. She and I are both big Tula Pink fans so this mini is made entirely with Tula Pink Fabrics.

I used Queen Elizabeth on the fabric titled "16th Century Selfie" from the Tula Pink "Elizabeth" line for the cake topper with a couple of side panels of "Fox Field" to fill in. I fussy cut in order to get both the rabbits facing in towards the queen. (This feels a bit like "Alice in Wonderland" to me now.) The border is also from the "Elizabeth" line. I know it was Marie Antoinette who said, "Let them eat cake!" but the queen was too perfect to pass up for this mini. :)
|It's hard to see but I quilted "Let them eat cake" into the bottom border.|
My camera angle is a bit wonky here but the quilt is actually squared up. The birthday girl loved it so I am a happy quilter! :) I must make another one of these sometime.
