Image Hello, and welcome to my blog! I’m so excited to have another block in the 100 Blocks Magazine. There are so many wonderful blocks in this issue to give you some quilting and sewing inspiration, you’ll be busy for months!

If you are anything like me, the ideas to create using these blocks are so abundant that I don’t want to do anything else but lock myself in my sewing studio and sew. Unfortunately though, life has a way of getting in the way of studio time so I just have to stitch a little when I can.

I’m happy that you have made it to Day 4 on the Blog Tour. When I sat down to create a block for this issue I wanted something that could be displayed year ‘round. After a few sketches I decided on a cupcake block as they are so sweet and tempting.

Cuppity Cake

Here are a few ideas of ways to use my “Cuppity Cake” block.

You could make a traditional style quilt using any number of blocks, I kinda like the look of this nine block setting using alternate blocks of four cupcakes.

For something a little simpler, how about a table runner? You can add some cupcake quilting in the center block.

Or, if you really want to try something a little different, here is an idea using the completed block and then taking portions of the design to create something a little more unique. I really like the look of this one.
