Sweet Treats

There are many reasons to create a quilt. You could recognize a special event like a wedding or birth, a holiday could inspire you or sometimes it just seems like the right thing to do. Sweet Treats was created to thank someone who gives to others without asking for anything in return.

This quilt was created to thank a sweet couple that always brings goodies in to work for others to enjoy.

The right Sweet Treat fabrics

As with any project, the right fabrics are a must! The goal was to find fabrics that showcased the sweet treats that we enjoyed every day.

Cupcakes and Cookies were the perfect choice of theme fabrics

At the Dallas Quilt Show – 2019, I found both cupcake and cookie fabrics that were perfect for this project. These, coupled with a basic light brown and swirly leafed darker brown completed the fabrics for this quilt.

The Layout

Creating a quilt with focus fabrics calls for a design that has large enough blocks to show them off. The last thing I wanted was to cut up the cookies and cupcakes too small so that they became indistinguishable. I chose the Disappearing 9 Patch pattern, and loved the results.

E2E Quilting Pattern

Finally, it was important to use a quilting pattern that complimented both the fabrics and theme. Urban Elementz had the perfect pattern so I chose Cupcake Party!

I love how the chocolaty brown thread looks on the negative areas.

Showing off Sweet Treats at our guild meeting

This quilt was so much fun that I hated to give it up. Luckily, I have enough fabric left over to use for our Guild Mystery Quilt. Don’t forget to look up other fun quilts in our QUILT GALLERY
