I saw two patterns using panels and candy squares. Look how cute these are:

I have never in all my years of quilting used a panel. These two have taken the panel to another step with the 2.5's enhancing the printed picture in the center. I like them. I may need to investigate using a panel in the future.

My candy Christmas tree is being built finally! Maybe the piecing will be done by Christmas! I am still debating the layout but you all have given me all the candies I need to do a small tree hanging. I don't think I will do the half-triangle tree but I've attached it just for the visual comparison.

I do love the candy treatment on those panels. Thank you for posting those Sewbizgirl!!

I cannot remember if someone pointed this pattern out already but it came through in one of the blogs I am catching up on. Maybe I will try this one, too! Here's a link to the pattern: https://www.etsy.com/listing/9534306...FBQUFBR09mNFJZ

the blog that led me there is responsible for the screenshot I have attached: https://weddingdressblue.wordpress.c...9/let-it-snow/

Ibex, I like the second tree quilt, with the scrappy red border!

Me, too, Sewbizgirl. It will let me use more of my candy colors, too.

Hi all. I am making a Candy Bucket List album with links to patterns. There are so many amazing candy quilts in this Birthday swap forum. If you haven't already made a Candy Album to showcase your candy quilts, please do! For those of us who are new to Candies, it will serve as wonderful motivation. May I add your pictures of your quilts if I cannot find a pattern link for it? I will credit you with the quilt, f'sure. I have loaded a small sample of copied images into the album if you want to take a look at how I intend to do it. If you do not want your quilt there, let me know and I will delete it without a problem. Your quilts are beautiful and I want to add them to my bucket list but I can do your quilts on a private list on my computer, too. So many projects, so little time!

To get to the album, click on my name to view my profile. The albums are on the right of the page on my computer. I have no clue where they would be if you are on a tablet or phone looking at images.

Merry Christmas!!

The first two are actually embroidery patterns, but it's in a grid, how nice to use. The snowflake I know is a pattern, but hey the pic is easy to sketch out. Was thinking solid flake and scrappy background. On the nome I was thinking to cut the candies in quarters and make him scrappy

I knew someone else had posted that snowflake! Thank you Gannyrosie!
