Sweet Treat & Taco Truck Quilt Pattern

Today's an exciting day!! I present to you the SWEET TREAT AND TACO TRUCK QUILT PATTERN!



The Sweet Treat Quilt finishes 55" x 61 1/2", is traditionally pieced, and includes a bonus pattern for making a Taco Truck quilt! Cause who doesn't love tacos?? 😋 Especially ones that come from food trucks - am I right? 🙌



This is also the second longest pattern I've written - 25 pages, people. And if you are wondering why, the biggest reason is that there are two patterns included, but, also because the pattern is set up so that there are detailed cutting and assembly instructions AND diagrams for EACH block. Just like my Sewology Block of the Month quilt - for those familiar with that pattern. Sweet Treat includes a Table of Contents page so you can easily access different parts of the pattern. I included tags for organizing all the cuts of fabric, there are coloring pages, an optional paper piecing pattern for the horn section on the truck block...the list goes on! This pattern is JAM PACKED with good stuff. Which I hope makes for a more enjoyable experience while making it! 



Some FAQ about the Sweet Treat Quilt:

Q - Is this pattern paper pieced?

A - The Sweet Treat Quilt is traditionally pieced, but the taco blocks in the Taco Truck Quilt are paper pieced. I do consider the taco blocks beginner friendly and if you're completely new to paper piecing, but want to make the Taco Truck Quilt, I have a beginner paper piecing video tutorial saved in my Instagram Highlights that you can view HERE.

Q - Do you know of any quilt shops selling bundles for the pattern?

A - Yes! You can find Sweet Treat bundles from Fabric Bubb (she has Taco Truck Bundles too!), Heartmade is Handmade, Pink Door Fabrics, Simply Love Fabrics, and Sewtopia!

Q - What are the names of the solids you used in your Sweet Treat Quilt?

A - I used Michael Miller Cotton Couture solids + one Kona solid to make my sample. The names of those solids are - Geranium, Aqua, Butterscotch (This is the Kona solid), Honey, Stone, White, and Blossom. And again, you can find a bundle for a Kona version of this in Fabric Bubb's shop too! 

Q - Will there be a sewalong?

A - For sure! And I'm so excited about it! The sewalong for both quilts starts February 1st! Sewalong will be 7 weeks long, there will be giveaways galore, and just fun times overall. I will be doing a separate blog post soon with more info, but in the meantime, you can find the schedule + fabric requirements at the very end of this post 😊



Alright about to wrap this up, but wanted to mention one last thing - I will be selling printed copies of the Sweet Treat pattern as well as PDF copies in my Etsy shop. If you buy a printed copy, it won't ship until January 22nd unfortunately. If you would like a PDF copy of the pattern to hold you over until you receive your printed copy, I'm more than happy to email it to you! Just forward me your order confirmation email from Etsy and I'll reply back with PDF file attached 😊
