    Cool Anyone else addicted to Moda Candy???

    I've been using Moda Candy to make a few projects, this one was finished this morning! I used Moda Candy called Paris Flea Market to make this one...

    The pattern came out of Moda's booklet called "Moda Candy, Oh Sew Sweet", which has 18 projects using Moda Candy Squares. This pattern was sooo easy and fast.

    I picked another pattern out of this booklet which has tiny pinwheels for the blocks. Whew! It's going to take me a little longer to get the pinwheels done! They are tiny! When one pinwheel block is done, it measures only 2-1/2 inches! I love a challange!

    Moda Candy is a wonderful way to buy a whole collection of a fabric line and it's only $4! I fell in love with Paris Flea Market and Audra's Iris Garden. I wanted BOTH OF THEM! But no way do I have the money to make a King size quilt with both lines of fabric. So I bought Audra's Iris Garden to make the king size quilt.

    And with Moda candy squares I can have my cake and eat it too! I am sooo buying more now... Next is Moda's Double Chocolate...

    Have you looked on Missouri Star Quiltings site? Jenny does a tutoral for easy pinwheels. Pinwheels intimidate me but Jenny makes it look so easy I'm considering trying them myself!

    Going there right now! I have 6 pinwheels done, with 12 more to go, so any tips I can find will be heaven! I've been cheating with the 6 I've already done. I used a 1/8" seam allowance and when it's finished, I trim the block down to 2-1/2" square. Shhhhh!!
