Sweet Tooth Block 3 - Gumdrop

My Sweet Tooth Block of the Month books are available now at local and online quilt shops! Since the book is available and kits are arriving in stores, 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 (arriving in shops now!), all of the strips in the roll ups 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 3, you'll use Kona PansyKona VioletKona Morning GloryKona Heliotrope and Kona Bright Peri:

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 Gumdrop 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 are available now. Kits 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 order now from Hawthorne Threads and Fat Quarter Shop. You can also find the books now at Fat Quarter ShopHawthorne Threads, as well as other local and online quilt shops.

Tell us in the comments below: Which version of my Sweet Tooth blocks do you like best so far? The original blocks in Kona Cotton solids or the Tula Pink prints?
Remember to share your photos on social media with the #SweetToothQuilt tag & have fun!

I like them equally! I Love Tula's fabric. Each color way gives such a different feel to the pattern. Can't wait to see it finished. :)

(sorry about the double post, hope I fixed it right..)

Mir gefallen alle Blöcke sehr gut, ich könnte mich nicht für einen Block entscheiden.
Übrigens, es gibt auf meinem Blog 2 Mini Quilts zu sehen, die ich mit dem Mini Hex N More Ruler hergestellt habe!

All three colours are fabulous. But since I need to choose, it will be raspberry.

All are very lovely but for myself I prefer the blocks made with the Tula Pink fabrics.
