Sweet Tooth Block 2 - Lollipop

Monday, February 8, 2016
My Sweet Tooth Block of the Month books are available now at local and online quilt shops! Since the book is out now, I wanted to share some inspiration for anyone looking to make a Sweet Tooth quilt. 

Sweet Tooth can be made in twin or queen sizes. This quilt is made using my Hex N More and Super Sidekick rulers. 

If you will be making your Sweet Tooth quilt from one of the Robert Kaufman Kona quilt kits (coming soon!), all of the strips in the roll up are in block order. Also, all of the Kona colors used in each block are noted in the Sweet Tooth book. This photo shows the fabrics that are in Roll 1. (The rolls are marked.)




To make Block 2, you'll use Kona AquaKona GrellowKona PoolKona Blue Grass and Kona Limelight:

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!

I'm making a Sweet Tooth quilt using Tula Pink prints. Here are my Lollipop blocks in Tula Pink:



You can see the other Sweet Tooth blocks I made here:

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.

If you're looking to order a Sweet Tooth quilt kit, they are available to pre-order now from Fat Quarter Shop. You can find the books now at Fat Quarter Shop and Hawthorne Threads, as well as other local and online quilt shops.

Tell us in the comments below: What's your favorite part of the Sweet Tooth quilt? The yummy "candies" of each block? Using your Jaybird Quilts rulers to cut the block pieces? Or sewing with 2 1/2" strips?

Remember to share your photos on social media with the #SweetToothQuilt tag & have fun!

This is my favorite BOM yet. I love sewing with 2.5" strips and the blocks are beautiful

I'm sort of wishing I hadn't signed up as a Block of the Month strictly because I don't want to stop working on it.
