Question. I'm wanting to join a block swap or whatever it's called, but I'm not too up on the jargon I'm afraid. What exact,y is a Candy block?

Here are a couple of quilts from the Moda website. I love their fabric! A lot of them are for jelly rolls, but would be fine for 2 1/2" squares . I have attached the web shortcuts for some of them, but if you go to http://www.modabakeshop.com/search/label/Quilt and scroll down each page and then at the bottom click older posts, you will find lots of ideas .
Cavmom! Those are awesome sites. I love how everyone helps out here, I sure appreciate it!
So far we have 14 Cotton swappers and 8 doing the Batik Twist! If I missed your PM, please let me know. I'm having some crazy times here IRL.
Oops! I meant to attach the links for the instructions but I only put the pictures. Here are the attachments with the pattern instructions
Cavmom - thanks so much for the links. Lots of inspiration!
Soooo.... I've received multiple pms asking about the "candy". Enough that I decided to post another description for potentially new swappers.
In my first 2.5" swap we called the small squares "candy" after the Moda sets of 2.5" squares. So...no real candy involved. One set would contain 50 DIFFERENT squares of 2.5" fabrics. Max set is 15. I choose 15 because I normally get 16 2.5" squares from one width of fabric. That leaves one for me, 15 to swap.
I'm sorry for the confusion and hope this helps clear up the question.
