NZ - gorgeous!!! I haven't tackled anything that big in candies yet. You are getting me excited and wanting to give it a try.

Here is a link to someone's pininterest page featuring nothing but ideas for 2.5" fabric candies.... https://www.pinterest.com/quiltnls/2...square-quilts/

Any newbies want to join in this swap?

I wondered why some of the examples looked familiar. Tee-Hee! Sewbizgirl you are amazing!

Here are a couple more quilts I've made using our cute candies, plus a basket sampler that I've had to put aside for the holiday season crazies. I'm looking forward to getting back to it. I hope we get some more interest in this swap before the deadline.

Wow! We have famous quilters in this group! NZ beautiful quilts. Sewbizgirl , I am not surprised that your quilts are inspiring everyone! I wonder if the person that created that pininterest page is someone from this board? Or did they get your pics from your etsy site? Lots of possibilities with the candies and artists like ya'll sharing your work! Thank you!

Here is the candy ghost I made. It is not yet quilted and is missing its eyes. I have it ready to practice some FMQ on my domestic. Hopefully, I will not need Jack to help with it too much.... Thank you Irish Mom for posting your beautiful ghost that inspired me! (post 992 in the 2021/2022 Candy Swap forum).

I forgot to take a picture of my finished Unicorn mug rug but here is a picture of that flimsy.

These candies are perfect for fast small projects to learn to quilt. As a first time candy swapper, I highly recommend this swap to all!

Little 2.5” candy projects are so much fun. Endless possibilities.

If you have ever posted a quilt to this board, it is probably on Pinterest somewhere. They troll the QB and take photos. Once you post something online, it’s no longer yours alone.
