Cupcakes for Young Quilters

Do you know a young quilter or are you looking for projects for children and young people? Well I have a great website for you to visit. Pippa Wardman organises the Young Quilters Group in Yorkshire for the Quilter's Guild and has designed a new website with some lovely projects: Quilt and Stitch.

Pippa made these delicious cupcakes and has published a step by step photo tutorial for them on the site:

 There are lots of other machine and hand stitched projects to try and information for students taking textile courses.

Pippa also recently made this QR code quilt which has been featured on the Poppyprint blog this week. I have seen this quilt, as Pippa brought it to our group meeting, and I have to tell you: it is stunning! It's made of 414 little fussy-cut cupcakes on a white background and if you scan it with a mobile phone or tablet PC it will automatically link to Pippa's website. You can find more information about the quilt on Pippa's Flickr photostream.
