Spring Fling Blog Hop: This one is for my peeps!

April 15, 2013

Welcome friends, old and new, to my part in Whims and Fancie’s Spring Fling Blog Hop! Be sure to scroll through to the end to see how to win my giveaway!

When I first learned of this fun event from Soma over at Whims and Fancies, the very first thing to pop in my head was bunnies. But not just any bunnies… PEEPS!

My original intention was to make just one 10″ Peep. If one Peep was cute, then wouldn’t three be cuter? Three quickly turned to eight and I realized my Peeps had multiplied like bunnies!

Peeps Bunnies

>>> Peeps! <<<

a 10″ pattern to paper piece. 

Instructions included for 5″ block.


Peeps! Designed in EQ7.

My Peeps got me thinking…what else has been crafted using these crunchy marshmallow treats as inspiration? Here are some of the Peep-tastic things I came across!

    Love the paper-pieced Peeps! My all-time favorite candy are the Sweet Tart Jelly Beans. Thank God they are only sold around Easter, as I cannot be trusted with them.

    I’m making a holiday quilt or my granddaughter & needed more easter blocks. I actually dreamed about peeps for a block & here they are! Odd that I open my email & discover the block in my dream! Thanks!

  5. April 15, 2013 07:39

    I love the peeps! My favorite candies are Mary Janes. I have been eating them for as long as I can remember. When Easter rolls around though, they take backseat to Peeps. And I have to have all the different colors I can find!

  6. April 15, 2013 07:39

    My favorite candy is chocolate-covered almonds!

  7. April 15, 2013 07:45

    Peeps are my all time favorite. When I was a nursery school teacher, my co-teacher would buy a few packs at Easter and save them to give to me when they got stale. I love then stale, but can never keep them in my house long enough to get that way.
    When I can’t get my beloved Peeps (the gingerbread looking peeps at Christmas are not acceptable), I enjoy semi-sweet or dark chocolate.

    Jelly beans, but only Brachts. Or Jelly Belly. And only the original, not any of the newer ones.

  9. April 15, 2013 08:07

    Many thanks for the Peeps pattern ~ I love them ~ not to eat but to look at!
    My favorite sweet? Blue Moon chocolates. They’re made right here in Portland, Oregon and are yummy!

    Your Peeps are soooo adorable!! Thank you for sharing the pattern. I don’t eat a lot of candy but when I do it is usually covered in dark chocolate. I really like Dark Chocolate Kit Kat bars but they are hard to find (that’s a good thing).

    Thanks Jennifer for the Peeps pattern. Love it. I can see it with the letters “Somebunny Loves U” on it.

    Not marshmellow; I like chocolate and nuts together. They have chocolate covered almonds Supreme which I get occasionally. My daughter loves Peeps especially after they’ve been allowed to dry out considerably! Yikes! This pattern is, “Oh, so cute.”

    I don’t have just one favorite candy. A lot depends on what mood I am in and sometimes what I have eaten prior to the candy. In general my favorite would be Lindt’s chocolate truffles.

    Peeps are my favorite, but I like them best when they sit around for a while and get a little hard. In fact I just ate my peeps from last Easter and have my peeps ready for next Easter.

  55. April 16, 2013 23:14

    See’s makes the most wonderful chocolate covered marshmallow eggs! Of course, they’re only here for Easter or I’d be in trouble! I made four of your peeps to do a mug rug for the April Showers Hop (it still needs quilting) but I also made one with your heart mug pattern. I’m busy trying to upload them to flickr as I type, thank you!

    Are there written instructions for the Peeps block. I’m new to paper piecing and not sure how to begin. I would like to make a block but I am unsure of the measurements to cut the fabrics. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • March 18, 2014 10:00

      Hi Karen,

      The real beauty of paper piecing is that you don’t generally pre-measure or pre-cut and once you learn the technique, you can tackle any block. I have a number of resources here that I think will help get you going:

      Happy stitching!
