I'm sure you have all heard the expression that the eyes are too big for the belly...well my visions are too big for my achieved talent. I want to make a quilt out of fondant with a design in each square ( an anchor, sailboat and lighthouse). The question is how do i do this? I was going to make the individual designs and then lay them on my quilt square and go over it with the rolling pin. I fear this may distort the design. HELP, any suggestions???

If you can find cutters in those shapes, you could cut them out of the quilt and then replace them with cutouts in a different color.

I would make a pattern with waxed paper or parchment paper and cut the pieces out of fondant with an exacto knife. Cut a plain square of fondant for each quilt block. Glue the pieces onto the plain squares and you'll have a block that you can pick up. You can smooth the edges together a little bit with your fingers. A real quilt isn't one solid piece, so it would add to the realism of it if it looks pieced together.

I've been wanting to do a quilt cake too, but I wanted to do a tumbling blocks pattern. I haven't got around to it yet though.
