To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the American Quilter’s Society (AQS), the largest quilting membership organization in the world, the world’s largest quilt cake was created for its Fall QuiltWeek Show in Paducah, Kentucky.

Designed and presented by baker Mauro Castano of the world famous Carlo’s Bakery, the AQS 35th Anniversary Quilt Cake Sponsored by Janome was four feet by eight feet and featured a sewing machine, scissors, and a toolbox all laid on top of a sheet cake designed to resemble a quilt.

“We are hosting this anniversary celebration as a way to thank everyone who has supported AQS over the years to become the world’s largest quilting membership organization,” said Meredith Schroeder, President and Founder of AQS. “We are thrilled to have Mauro Castano in Paducah to help us celebrate this milestone and we hope everyone takes part in the fun by drawing their own exciting quilt-themed cake in our adult coloring contest.”

QuiltWeek is a chance for people from all over to come together to admire artwork that is not only nostalgic but has evolved to incorporate revolutionary and modern art techniques.
