IKEA Godis Chokladkex mini quilt

June 29th, 2012

When I discovered these IKEA Godis Chokladkex treats, I didn’t care what was inside.

All I saw was the wrapper.

I did some research…

… and remembered the Half Rectangle Triangle Tutorial at the MQG website.

My little 8″ x 9″ mini quilt. Or a potholder.

Proving that dessert should always be a priority.

    Love it! It’s fun when you get obsessed enough with quilting that you see quilts everywhere.

    Now you’ve got me wondering what it would be like if IKEA named quilts…

  2. The fabulous Karen allegedly said:

    Amazing, love the bright solids!

  3. The fabulous Rhonda allegedly said:

    THAT was a great IDEA! Now I have to add IKEA to my list of to do tomorrow (luckily there is one 10 miles from me!)… I love those colors of your mini quilt! Good thinking and yes, life is short, eat dessert first!

  4. The fabulous Kimberly allegedly said:

    You crazy smart lady, you!

  5. The fabulous pam allegedly said:

    I ♥??? you. ALways having fun. xo

  6. The fabulous Sarah@PingsAndNeedles allegedly said:

    Monica, you slay me! I saw these in Ikea last visit and stood in front of a huge stack laughing at the quilty possibilities … my friend (non quilty) just rolled her eyes and walked on!

  7. The fabulous Heather K allegedly said:

    I’m getting on the mega bus tomorrow at 7 AM, which happens to be right next to Ikea. Think they’ll let me in?

  8. The fabulous DianeP allegedly said:

    It looks like your research sure paid off - that’s a great little quilt!
    Amazing how quilt patterns can emerge from anywhere - especially the dessert aisle!

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your research!

  9. The fabulous Jackie allegedly said:

    A true quilter! I would only see the wrapper too… Love the results. How was the candy? ;)

  10. The fabulous Mhairi allegedly said:

    I knew I loved Ikea but now I really love it. Not only does it have the storage solution for my fabrics and other craft supplies but now it provides quilt design inspiration too. SQUEAL!!!
    Love the mini quilt. Hope the contents of the packets were tasty too.

  11. The fabulous elsa allegedly said:

    Oh, I love it ~ the colors are so bright! Ikea is one of my favorite places to roam around to get decorating ideas! And, the fabric looks so soft and yummy.

  12. The fabulous Cindy Sharp allegedly said:


    How were the innards?

  13. The fabulous helen allegedly said:

    What a great idea! How fun to be inspired by a chocolate wrapper. That is a pretty great design on the wrapper.

    But how was the chocolate?

  14. The fabulous Leslie Schmidt allegedly said:

    I don’t know if I could have waited long enough to find inspiration. The chocolate would be gone and the wrappers thrown away before an idea could find me.

    Thanks for keeping your eyes open for me.

  15. The fabulous Kristy Wilkinson allegedly said:

    So, um, in your “research” did it involve any tasting? :-) Were the things in the wrappers any good? What a cute quilt! Love the bright colors. Keep up that creativity. K-

  16. The fabulous Amy allegedly said:

    Fabulous post!

  17. The fabulous Hillary allegedly said:

    Oh darn, here I was hoping you were actually going to sew the wrappers up. One of these days I’m going to learn to make stuff from old packaging. By the time I get around to it of course, it will do be out of style.

  18. The fabulous Polly allegedly said:

    Your little candy inspired quilt is stunning!! Love the colors!! And now, tell us what WAS in those wrappers, girl???

  19. The fabulous Claire Jain allegedly said:

    This is looking fun :-) Inspiration is everywhere!

  20. The fabulous Sandra R allegedly said:

    It is so nice to realize that others are crazy in the same way I am! I see quilting possibilities everywhere. Drives nonquilters up a wall. Nice work!

  21. The fabulous Pat allegedly said:

    Just love your new little quilt! Love your blog, too.

  22. The fabulous Mary @ Sea Quilts allegedly said:

    Ummmm … quilting FOOD! As long as I can eat what I sew (or the inspiration for the sewing … even I don’t want to EAT fabric) then this is a great plan.

    Not to mention a colorful, fun piece of work.

    Thanks for the peek ~

  23. The fabulous dana allegedly said:

    Those wrappers ARE pretty inspiring! Well done!

  24. The fabulous SuzK allegedly said:

    to funny - quilters can find inspiration anywhere (btw, how was the chocolate?)

  25. The fabulous Cynthia allegedly said:

    Oh wow genius!! Chocolate and quilts mashup- brilliant idea!! Looooove it!!

  26. The fabulous jenny b harris allegedly said:

    You’re the cleverest most creative girl EVER!

  27. The fabulous ina allegedly said:

    Beautiful! ;p

  28. The fabulous Kelly allegedly said:

    This is so cute! I’m glad I’m not the only one who sees quilts where there is no fabric. (to me the chairs in the food court at my local mall look like clam shells ) Absolutely love the link to the tutorial for the half rectangle triangles! I have been strugling to find a way to make them with out having to cut out each triangle separetly,

  29. The fabulous Rebecca allegedly said:

    I am so stunned with the gorgeousness of those colors! So cool of you to see that pattern and make it with fabric.

    Super LOVE.

  30. The fabulous Karen allegedly said:

    Well that’s just so darn clever!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
