Little Box of Quilter's Desserts / 1-56477-664-6

This sweet and sturdy gift box comes with a re-sealable magnetic flap, so that the recipe cards inside can be stored easily in a kitchen or on a bookshelf in the sewing room. Each of the 20 recipe cards contains a colorful picture of the featured dessert, a brief fact about the sweet treat, instructions on how to make the dessert, and an accompanying quilt block on the flip side. The recipe cards are sleek and stain-proof, and quite mouth-watering. This collection contains:

1. Sour Cream Chocolate Cake and Milky Way 12" Block
2. Butterscotch Cake and Scotch Squares 12" Block
3. Strawberry Mousse Cake and Fruit Basket 12" Block
4. Apricot Upside-Down Cake and Cake Stand 10" Block
5. Lemon Crystal Cupcakes and Sugar Cube 12" Block
6. Cherry Baby Cakes and Cherry Basket 10" Block
7. Double Blueberry Streusel Bars and Double Squares 12" Block
8. Cranberry Cereal Wreaths and Cranberry Wreath 12" Block
9. Buckeye Candies and Buckeye Beauty 12" Block
10. Tropical Breeze Pie and Bowl of Fruit 12-3/4" Block
11. Fresh Apple Cake and Churn Dash 10" Block
12. Rum Spice Cake and Pineapple Star 12" Block
13. Chocolate Nut Tea Cookies and Tea for Four 12" Block
14. Rocky Road Cookie Pizza and Rocky Road 12" Block
15. Coffee 'n' Cream Bars and Cups and Saucers 12" Block
16. Pineapple-Coconut Dream Bars and Pennsylvania Pineapple 11-3/4" Block
17. Ginger Pear and Pineapple Pie and Prickly Pear 14" Block
18. Creamy Maple-Apple Pie and Maple Star 12" Block
19. Shoofly Pie and Shoofly 12" Block
20. Lime Curd Sugar Tartlets and Sugarbowl 12" Block

The blocks themselves are fairly basic, but are provided in decent detail, with cutting measurements given for each piece. Most quilters will have some of these blocks already in their collection (for instance, the ubiquitous Shoofly), but the packaging is cute and the overall thought is what counts. This is a cute gift for the quilter in the family, especially if they have a sweet tooth.
