OK so my simple attempts at quilting, all tie quilts, are nowhere near as beautiful or intricate as lot of the ones posted here.  But my dd who is about to turn 6 this week really wanted one so I made her one as part of her Christmas gift.  Cupcakes are her signature thing.  SHe loves them, so of course that had to bethe theme.  Anyway here are a few pics of my 1st finished quilt. 

  Ihad a hard time getting a pic of the whole thing.  It is a bit of an oversized twin.

A few of my favorite cupcake squares:






Here are 3 of my cuties trying to hold up the quilt for another pic:


Later I will post pics of the other kids quilts I finished for CHristmas.   Still to come are quilts in Monkey Love, Cars & Mighty Machines, & Pirates themes.  Hope you enjoy!


Thanks for looking.

That's great!  And all the applique makes it not-so-simple, really - beautiful! (I have that Dora Fabric - need to find something to do with it, as DD doesn't much like the whole idea of cotton dresses anymore.)

Thanks guys!  Glad you like it.  Making the applique cupcakes was fun.  I used mostly felt & then embroidered on the details.
