Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Blog Tour - Collector's Edition Volume 14

WOW ... my block again selected for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine!
This cupcake is sew special ... it is presented on its' own little cake stand!
Get out your Collector's Edition Volume 14, turn to page 33,
and start stitchin' up your own Chocolate-Cherry Cupcake!
You can add all sorts of embellishments to make this cupcake your own.
I used mini rick-rack to give the look of the 'pleats' of the cupcake liner.
 
 

Add lace to the top of the cupcake stand... sew pretty!
Be sure to sew the embellishments onto the fabric, before piecing that section into the block.
This way, all raw edges of the embellishments are hidden in the seams.
Add a cute Cherry button to the top ... and you have your own
Chocolate-Cherry Cupcake!
Ohhhh ... I just heard the timer ...
my cupcakes are ready to take out of the oven ... yummmm.  Enjoy!
