"You are what you eat... so eat something sweet!" - Sweet Occasions
Today is the release day for the Sugar & Sweets Mini Quilt. Every month we release a new mini quilt pattern and if you love quick and fresh quilty projects, you can join our Inspired Mini Quilts Monthly Club and get inspired every month!
This Sugar & Sweets Mini Quilt Pattern was inspired by a bowl of wrapped candy. When I was young and we visited my grandma's house, she always had a full bowl of colorfully wrapped candies on her coffee table. My sister and I were allowed to help ourselves to as many as we wanted, and enjoyed unwrapping them to reveal the surprise candy inside! We often ate the whole bowl in one afternoon visit!
The Sugar & Sweet Mini Quilt was designed to have a scrappy, fresh feel. It finishes at 18" x 18" so is also the PERFECT size for a pillow!
I used the wonderfully bright and fun Rainbowfruit Fabric by Damask Love for Riley Blake Designs. I always love a good stripe for binding and I adore the diagonal rainbow print in this collection, so I used this print for the binding and for parts of my blocks. Just look at the wonderful tossed fruit prints and a sprinkle print that inspired me to create a FREE Donut Tutorial!
You can read through the FREE Doughnut Tutorial HERE and download the PDF template or SVG cut files all for FREE! If you would like to watch some of the tricks to sewing a stuffed Donut, you can watch the YouTube Tutorial video below.
You could even use the Stuffed Donut for a delicious pin cushion set upon an antique plate! I hope these little projects brighten your day and I am looking forward to seeing what you create with them!
