Sweet Inspiration in QUILTER’S WORLD’s (August 2012)

I showed you these Sugar Rush fabrics by RJR Fabrics a couple of months ago, with sneak peeks of the quilt.  Click here to see the full fabric range.

And now, I am able to show you the entire quilt!  This quilt majors in quick and easy construction for a speedy quilting fix and finish!

The quilt feature the different “sweets” within the framed blocks.  The effect is kind of like seeing candies and desserts on mail catalog pages.

Miss Baby fell in love with the “pupcake quilt” instantly (as she calls it) when I showed it to her!  She has been sleeping with the quilt every night.  I have been trying to photography this quilt for weeks, but it was a little tricky for the quilt to get a few free moments for some serious photo shoot.  Here are a few shots I managed to capture:

You will see in the following pictures of the quilt with the actual magazine spread.  “Are you expecting a separate box with those cupcakes?” was my husband’s response after he scanned the magazine pages featuring the quilt.

Quilting was kept informal and simple because of the lighthearted design.  I used Aurifil‘s Mako 50 Cotton to quilt over Hobbs‘ Silk batting.

Take a look at the cherry-filled back of the quilt!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are enjoying your summer/winter so far.  Hugs to you all.

Before you leave, do tell me your favorite dessert/sweet – I am dying to know! :)

  1. That is just darling. Perfect for a dessert table. I especially love that border.

    I love a wide variety of desserts (too much so, I’m afraid….) but I think my overall favorite is Texas Sheet Cake. It’s chocolate, made in a cookie sheet rather than a pan, and tastes like it has cinnamon in it though it doesn’t.

  2. Homemade lemon meringue pie for a pie.
    Oatmeal raisin cookies
    chocolate cake with the top of each layer covered with graham cracker crumbs, chocolate chips and chopped walnuts and when cool, you ice the middle
    and the sides with cook whip. When I make this cake, I do not share!!!!

  3. Favorite pie..pumpkin..my mom’s recipe
    Favorite cookie..Hermits
    Which reminds me…I need to take butter out of fridge to soften so I can make some Hermit cookies.!

  4. I love your quilt and all your quilting designs but my favorite dessert is Coconut Cream Pie that I make.

  5. I love that ‘sweet’ quilt! You are so right….simpler is better for this one. What child/child-at-heart wouldn’t fall for this (although, if one was watching their intake of such delights, this might be classified as “torture”…. hehe!) My fave dessert is the one in front of me! Just took a peach/mango crisp out of the oven to be served with “pour cream” (how’s that for an old-fashion, rural phrase!?!).

  6. I love it that Miss Baby has claimed this one as her own. The cherry backing fabric is my favorite in this mix, and I love the simplicity of the pattern you came up with to show these off. Quick, simple designs like these are perfect for focusing on free motion quilting practice!

  7. I love how the larger boxes were used to showcase the prints – only truly ugly fabric should be cut so small as to be unrecognizable!

    My fave? ummm…anything with chocolate, coconut, caramel, cherries, strawberries, peaches, nuts of any kind…pretty much ANYthing sweet!

  9. Chocolate BonBons

    1PKG. Oreo Cookies,1 Large Cream Cheese, 1 Almond Chocolate Bar
    Crush oreo cookies fine, mix cream cheese with mixer until smooth,pour crushed cookies into the cream cheese, mix good, and roll into small balls. Melt cho., and dip balls into cho. Place on wax paper. Enjoy!

  10. I really like this quilt and the used fabrics… Am I correct that not all fabrics were from the Sugar Rush collection? (The tan tonal, the polka dot and the strippy fabric) Were those from RJR or stash? Really like your choice of fabric ;-)
    Best wishes from the Netherlands!
