The mid-century party planner who thought of making a patchwork quilt out of bread may have been a bit too creative. I’m gonna file this one under cute to look at, but disgusting to eat.

Quilters know the term Quilt Sandwich. It refers to the process of putting together a quilt. The bottom layer is the backing, the middle layer is the padding, and the top layer is the quilt top. You then use a needle and thread to sew it all together. As someone who quilts, I love that this is not a quilt sandwich, but a sandwich quilt.
