Another Food Quilt Block Tutorial for National Cinnamon Bun Day

Hi there! Long time no see! I'm back today with another food quilt block tutorial for my National Days scrap quilt project. This one is for National Cinnamon Bun Day, which lands in October, but we are still way off track from what was supposed to be a 2020 project, due to a pandemic, a major health detour, and more recently, TWO wildly sweet puppies! Here is today's block..

And a more recent photo of said puppies who are now four months old. Wearing some cheesy little outfits.. lol They're so much fun! That's Dixie on the left and her littermate brother, Chance, on the right. They are about 40 pounds right now and will probably be about 90 pounds. 

Let's get on with this scrappy cinnamon bun. Here is the recipe. ;)

Fabric A - Background
(1) 1 x 8 1/2"
(1) 1 1/4 x 8 1/2"
(2) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(2) 2" sq.

Fabric B - Roll
(4) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(2) 1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (**)
(1) 2 x 8 1/2"

Fabric C - White Frosting
(6) 1" sq. (~)
(2) 1 x 2 1/2" (>>)
(1) 1 x 4 1/2"
(1) 1 1/4 x 5 1/2"
(8) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(4) 1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (**)
(1) 1 1/2 x 4 1/2" (****)
(2) 1 3/4 x 2"

Fabric D - Dark Cinnamon Swirl
(2) 1" sq. (~)
(1) 1 x 4 1/2"
(1) 1 x 5 1/2"
(6) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(5) 1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (**)

--Match the symbols (~,* etc.) in the cutting instructions with the symbols in the assembly diagram.

Using the simple corner flip method illustrated in the video above, and fabrics and sizes indicated on the unit, make the following corner flip units. Note the video shows double upper corners, but these units' corner flips vary.


Once you've completed the above clip & flip units, assemble block as shown below using SCANT quarter inch seams.

You'll have an 8 1/2" sq. Cinnamon Bun or Cinnamon Roll quilt block. (8" when finished in quilt.)

I just took a look, and I think out of the remaining blocks I had originally listed for this project, I have four food blocks left. So many food blocks!

Hope you enjoyed this one! I'll be back soon with the next block in line. And hopefully be back on track with posting more regularly. :)

Have a great week and Happy Stitching!


P.S. I love to see blocks and quilts that are made with any of my patterns. If you make any and post on social media, please come find me in any of the places listed below, and tag me so I can see! :) If you're on YouTube, check out the short musical video tutorials of some of these blocks. I'm hoping they might inspire kids, or anyone really, to learn to sew. :) Plus, they're just fun to do.


I'm keeping all of these blocks organized on the National Days quilt blocks page *HERE*if you're looking for any of the other 100+ blocks I've posted so far. Getting closer to my goal of 144 blocks! If you know someone who loves MinecraftPokemon, and or Harry Potter, check out these free sew alongs, too! :) And if you're looking for any of my print patterns, or other fun quilty gifts, check out my Etsy shop here. Be back soon!
