    need suggestion for dessert block

    I'm doing two blocks for state fair. The theme is desserts. Any one have any ideas or patterns to point me in right direction. Drawing a blank.....help! Any technique will do. I know you all won't let me down

    A cupcake block should be easy to applique.

    Does it have to be food?
    What about the Crystal Cake Plate block?

    Various companies have had fabrics in recent years that had cupcakes or sundaes or or birthday cakes. Here are some I scared up (I have not dealt with any of these sellers).

    You could incorporate some fussy cuts into almost any kind of a block. Or maybe you could create some 3 dimensional cakes with trapunto quilting, such as a fluted cupcake paper, swirled icing, and a cherry on top. Or maybe you could make something like an attic windows design that is a bakery window with kids looking in. It seems like a fun project. Hope you enjoy it.

    Do you have a regional dessert for your area that you could feature? Are you looking for pieced blocks or appliqué? For pieced blocks I would look through www.quilterscache.com quilt blocks galore for ideas. For appliqué I would look for a desert that would be easily recognizable in fabrics. You might feature something like a banana split, sundae, strawberry shortcake or as someone mentioned an icecream cone.

    This is a link to buy the book for $7, but at the bottom is the video for making the quilt. It has an ice cream cone and a banana split. The banana split is in the second video. I have the book, but haven't made it yet.
