I must confess... I am enamored with these candy squares! They are so little, but so sweet. Each packet is about the size of a chocolate truffle... mmmm!
I love these candy squares so much, I have a "plate" of them in my sewing room!
So... I've thinking about stitching a series of small quilts with these candy squares. and, "Ta Da"... one done, more to come!
I used the Starburst pattern (page 13) by Fig Tree in the Moda Candy pattern booklet (First Edition). Find pattern booklet & in-stock mini charms here.

|Such cheerful prints!|
|Pick your 5 favorites....|
|Then, add more... Use your design wall to assist with fabric placement|
|These are the only squares I had left over!|
|Make a 5 x 5 checkerboard. Use pins to mark your rows.|
|5 x 5 checkerboard|
|I improvised here... the pattern instructions assemble the full quilt as a checkerboard...|
but I refused to sew a bunch of grey solid 2.5" squares together....
|Ta-Da! Done. |
Finished size 22" x 22" I'll post another pic once it's quilted and bound.
And, the best part... I pieced this delightful little table topper in 2.5 hours. That included at least 30 minutes to "unsew" when I measured wrong. I was so busy admiring the pretty fabrics that I didn't pay much attention to the math.
Kit sells for $25.50 (including pattern booklet, candy squares, binding and backing. Find it here.
You can feed your fabric addiction, guilt-free!
