How to Make a Scrappy Cupcake

Scrappy, colorful cupcakes are not only yummy, but calorie free!🧁 




You've probably guessed what National Day it is today.. Yep, National Cupcake Day. So I'm back to making another scrap block for my National Days scrap project. Block number 11 of 144+ that I will probably need for a king size scrap quilt for our bed. It might take ages to make, but it will use up a lot of scraps!




All of the blocks are 8" finished and use fairly small pieces, so it's been working out great for the small scraps!

Here's how I made this block. 🠟





Fabric A (background):
(4) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(3) 1 1/2 x 2" (#)
(2) 2" sq.
(2) 2 1/2 x 3"
(2) 3 x 4"


Fabric B (liner):
(2) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(1) 3 x 4 1/2"


Fabric C (icing):
(1) 1 1/2 x 6 1/2"
(1) 2 x 5 1/2"


Fabric D (cherry):
(1) 1 1/2" sq.


Fabric E (cake):
(1) 1 x 6 1/2" (>>>)






Double Upper Corners

1. Place a square at the left end or left upper corner of a rectangle or larger square, right sides together.
2. Stitch from right upper to left lower corner.
3. Clip, flip & press.
4. Place a square at the right end or right upper corner of a rectangle or larger square, right sides together.
5. Stitch from left upper corner to right lower corner.
6. Clip, flip & press.





~Using the above method, (2) 1 1/2" sq. of Fabric A, and a 2 x 5 1/2" rect. of Fabric C, make one double upper corner clip & flip unit.

~Repeat using (2) 1 1/2" sq. of Fabric A and a 1 1/2 x 6 1/2" rect. of Fabric C.

Right Upper Clip & Flip

1. Place square at upper end or left upper corner of rectangle or larger square, right sides together.
2. Stitch from right upper to left lower  corner.
3. Clip, flip & press.
