My Sweet Tooth Block of the Month books are available now at local and online quilt shops! Since the book is out now, I thought it would be fun to share some inspiration for anyone looking to make a Sweet Tooth quilt. You can sign up to participate in a Sweet Tooth block of the month program with a local quilt shop or guild (ask around if you're looking to join one!), order a Sweet Tooth quilt kit, or craft your own Sweet Tooth quilt with your favorite 2 1/2" strips!
Kits featuring the Kona Cotton solids I used to make the twin size quilt will be available Spring 2016. Kits will include the Sweet Tooth book, 60 Kona Cotton 2 1/2" strips + all of the background and binding fabric to make the quilt.
This is what you'll need to make Block 1 of the quilt: the book, some background fabric and five 2 1/2" strips.
If you order a Kona quilt kit, you will break open the first roll up to pull your Block 1 fabric. The kit contains 4 rolls. Each roll contains 15 strips, the fabric needed for 3 blocks.
For Block 1, you'll use Kona Mediterranean, Kona Turquoise, Kona Mulberry, Kona Wisteria and Kona Cabbage:

Sweet Tooth also works really well with prints. I just started making a version from my stash Tula Pink fabrics & plan to share my blocks with you along the way!
One last bit of exciting news... I have included a bonus in the Sweet Tooth book for you!! Directions on how to make the quilt in Queen size!

I love the idea of Tula scrappy and although my stash of Tula isn't as big as yours I might just dig it out and follow along! The first block is so cute!
Will I get to use my Hex n' More ruler to make this?
Sorry, I had so many typos in my first comment that I thought I better redo it.
I love your Sweet Tooth Quilt Julie and equally love the idea of doing it in a scrappy version with prints. Thanks for the links so we can find your book!
Look stunning, esp in Queen size :)
Glad to see the two and half inch strps used again. I've made so many CHOPSTICK quilts because the strip are do great to use. Can't wait to get the kit.
Yes this pattern uses the Hen N More & it uses the Super Sidekick rulers.
Fantastic!!! I too love the versatility & ease of 2.5" strips.
I squealed when I got the mail saying my first installment has been shipped. Of course, I had to buy the Rock Candy pattern too.
