So, my first step in making the quilt was to aimlessly wander the aisles of the fabric store. I knew the colour scheme was going to be pink and black, so I looked for fabrics that had a striped pattern for the cupcake base and textured patterns for the top.
Once I had decided on the fabrics, I made a template or pattern for the top and bottom of the cupcake and tried cutting out a few to see what it would look like. I always like to “dry fit” my quilts to see if I like the design. I think it would be horrible to spend so much time putting together a quilt that you don’t end up liking.
