The Candy Quilt
This quilt marked a huge milestone for me. It was my tenth, finished right around 6 months from when I first took sewing lessons and took off piecing, layering and binding. I started with a multi-colored polka dot print, pulling colors from it. The lovely Beth at my favorite fabric store (Rock Paper Scissors in Montclair) suggested using a red linen, and though I wasn’t sure about it, it turned out really well. I used the polka dots for the back and binding.
The finished quilt measured 44″ square.
I also tried free motion quilting, this time in a loopy design, to really nice effect.
I really liked working with such a colorful bunch of fabrics.
Was so nice to meet you last night , i am excited to be part of a group of women with similiar interests as mine. This candy quilt is lovely. Love your loopy free motion quilting.
Thanks! It was great to meet you too. I was so excited after leaving the meeting last night that there were so many interesting and creative women. I can’t wait to get to know everyone. Now I’m off to check out your site…
