Almost everyone loves cupcakes! My daughter decorates cakes for others and suggested I do a "cupcake of the month" design. This is a fun way to decorate for each month with something that's also potentially functional. I tried to keep these designs simple with pieces that are easy to applique, so they go together quickly and are good for a beginning applique-er to try. These designs also work great on aprons, tablerunners, mini quilts or as blocks in a seasonal wall hanging or quilted throw.
