Wedding Cake Quilt Block

By:

Here's a fun no-sew quilt block you can attach to a quilted background. Use a hand-drawn image, printed onto fabric. When you add beads, tape, yarn, ribbon, and thread, the result is 3-dimensional fun and fanciness.

Wedding Cake Quilt Block

Materials:

  • Two 8" x 10" sheets of Treasure Tape
  • Treasure tape dots
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Kreinik #12 Braid in 092, 1223, 9194, 032, 071
  • Scraps of lacy strips, elegant piping, etc
  • Flat-backed pearl-like buttons
  • Design printed on fabric sheet (8 1/2" x 11")

Steps:

  1. Remove the white backing from an 8x10 sheet of Treasure Tape. Lay the fabric piece on the sticky tape, with the printed side facing the tape. Smooth out any bubbles.
     
  2. Turn your fabric piece over and remove the red liner exposing the top sticky area.
     
  3. Lay strips of decorative lace, ribbon or piping all around the edge of the fabric piece, pressing into the tape to adhere.
     
  4. Use the #12 Braid in color 032 to make the outline of the cake. Decorate layers of the cake by laying colors of #12 Braid plus your decorative ribbons. Press the ribbons into the tape to make sure it adheres.
     
  5. Lay the pearl buttons randomly around the cake. With colors of #12 Braid, make curly q's to resemble flower petals around some of the pearl buttons.
     
  6. When decorating is complete, lay your design in a shallow pan or tray and cover all remaining sticky areas with Diamond Beadlets.
