Sweet Tooth Block 5 - Licorice Twist

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 (available now!), 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 2. (The rolls are marked.)

To make Block 5, you'll use Kona ThistleKona MagentaKona TulipKona Jamaica and Kona Astral:

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 Licorice Twist 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 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 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: Are you making your Sweet Tooth quilt as part of a block of the month program or are you making your quilt on your own?
Remember to share your photos on social media with the #SweetToothQuilt tag & have fun!

I purchased a Sweet Tooth kit from our local quilt shop and have been working my way through the blocks. I LOVE THIS QUILT!! Your instructions are very well written and the visual illustrations help tremendously. Thank you Julie for designing such a fun project!

I've made two of your other projects (Mini Tiny Dancer and full size Northern Lights) and really enjoyed the process. When Sweet Tooth came along, I also recruited 4 of my quilting buddies to make it along with me. Now, we're all having a great time. :o)

Is there a kit for expanding Sweet Tooth to Queen Size?
