Candy Scraps Quilt

Candy Scraps

If you follow me on IG or over on Facebook, you have seen a few peeks of this quilt in progress:

Candy Scraps Beginnings

This is my Candy Scraps quilt designed for Moda Bake Shop.  It uses a bit of yardage and either a variety of mini charm packs for this scrappy version or a charm pack and a mini charm pack for a less scrappy version.  I loved working on another MBS quilt.  I didn’t do any of them last year–it’s been fun working on another one.

This was the perfect quilt to hand quilt–it’s a throw sized quilt 48″ x 72″ & quilted up pretty quickly.  Lilli loves sitting on my lap as I quilt & bind—she sees me sitting down with quilt and needle and and I can immediately hear her little jingly collar heading my way!

Today, I am blogging about Candy Scraps and giving the free tutorial to make a Candy Scraps quilt of your own over on Moda Bake Shop.

Another Freebie–Irish Dreams Quilt

I have been working on a big project which is going to be keeping me very busy for the next several months.  However, I did want to pop in and share my Irish Dreams quilt design for P&B Textiles to showcase their Daydreams line of fabric.  This is another free pattern available on their website here.

This quilt, although it has a lot of 2″ pieces, it comes together somewhat quickly–I use the term somewhat rather loosely…although it does go quicker than you might think.  The quilt top is made up of 9 22″ triple irish chain blocks and then the borders….see, 9 blocks isn’t so bad, right! =)

Here it is pictured in Lilly Belle by Bari J. Ackerman for Art Gallery Fabrics.  I love this line of fabric and I am totally going to have to break down and purchase some!

I hope that you have all been able to enjoy the beginning of fall!
