This has been a very popular pattern! The cookies look good enough to eat with the "sugar" and "sprinkles" on them and there is a real sugar cookie recipe embroidered around the border!! What fun for a kitchen or bakery! Several people have made them to put up at Christmas or to give grandchildren who love to help in the kitchen! You can find a tutorial for the applique method I prefer on my blog, Buzzing and Bumbling, but any method, including machine applique, will work for this quilt. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY simple sewing and quilting, applique,simple embroidery SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished quilt approximately 51" x 40"
