Cake Mix Recipes

Have you heard about Cake Mix Recipes?

These are new from Moda and quite fun to use. Click here to read about them and see a short video about how to they work.

I have been playing with the Cake Mix Recipe 1 and a layer cake of Tula Pink's new fabric line, Tabby Road. The background fabric I'm using is a Grunge, color called Ballet Slipper. It's a pale pink. 

I sewed all the units, pressed them and pulled off the paper (which came off quite easily for me). Then I started playing:

Above are the layouts I tried. I picked one and started sewing but it's not finished yet. I looked down at the units pooling on the floor behind my machine and this is what I saw:

The left is about a third of the way through sewing and the right is when I was finished. I didn't do anything to make them do this. It probably isn't unique or special, but it made me smile.

When I get the top together I'll share it with you so you can see which layout I chose.
