2014 is the University of Chester’s 175th anniversary, and to mark this event a group of quilters have been making a commemorative quilt. The quilt consists of 25 blocks, each reflecting aspects of life at the University of Chester, both now and in its past. You can read more about the quilt here.

Now normally when reading any article about quilts, or about any form of needle art, my attention would be focused firmly on the sewing. However when reading the blog post I was completely distracted by this amazing sewing box cake, made by the university's catering department. Even the cotton reels, scissors and buttons are edible!

The only problem is, I can't imagine how they could bear to cut it!
