This was exactly what I was looking for! Best instructions for quilting without an impression mat. Thanks so much! icon_biggrin.gif

I had a problem when I tried to score the surface of the fondant for the quilt pattern. It was too hard and I couldn't put a decent 'dent' in the fondant. It was tending to crack under the pressure.
by the time I'm done covering and smoothing a cake, it's already starting to get hard. So are there any tricks (besides working really fast?)

Cut a right angled triangle out of cardboard (you can also buy clear plastic ones). Stand it up next to your cake as in the picture. Trace a line in your cake with whatever tool you're using. Then scootch it over an inch and repeat. Keep doing this until you've covered the cake . Then flip the triangle around and scootch around the cake in the opposite direction using the bottoms of your previous lines as starting points.

I like this method better than because you can control the size of the quilting, making the squares as small or as large as you like. You change the size of the square by changing the distance you scootch. The smaller the scootch, the smaller the square. And it really only takes a few minutes.


thank you, I was also looking. This is a big help.

LOL - - and not one single person had a problem with "scootch" !

What's wrong with scootch? It means to nudge something over a little without picking it up.

There's nothing at all wrong with scootch - - I'm very familiar with scootch. I kept waiting for someone to ask you for clarification and no one did. Sorry - - my warped sense of humor has reared its ugly head again. icon_smile.gif
