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!

WIN PRIZES -- comment on my quilt block "Smooth Sailing" featured in Quiltmakers 100 Blocks Magazine Vol. 13

Comment on Quiltmaker's Blog about my Quilt Block "Smooth Sailing" featured in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 13 for a chance to win this FABULOUS fat quarter bundle of Diamond Textiles Heritage Homespuns!  Also, comment right here on my Blog for a chance to WIN one of these WONDERFUL issues of Quilmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine!

My Quilt Block Smooth Sailing was sooo much fun to make.  The sails are actually folded to create a dimensional effect!  Choose your own favorite fabrics for the sail ... I liked the look of stripes to add the feeling of movement.  You can use any width of stripe ... look at this Christmas sail!

For the sailor in your life, you might want to use a fabric the color of his/her sail.  Add embroidery or applique' letters and numbers to personalize your captains sail boat!

Make 9 blocks, add sashing and cornerstones ... what a cute babies quilt!

Whatever the occasion ... Smooth Sailing is the way to have FUN!
