Valentine Candy
5 Attachment(s)
I always cut up my leftover fabrics into 2.5" (candy) squares, and I like to think up ways to use them.

It has been fun participating in some "candy" swaps to get thousands of different fabrics. The current swap is in this thread: https://www.quiltingboard.com/member...p-t285320.html. I didn't join this year, but hope to next year if they have it.

SheriR taught us how to make little dresden blocks from "candy" squares in last year's swap. I used them in the top and bottom of this quilt to make it longer. Thank you SheriR! Edit by moderator: SheriR's tut is here: https://www.quiltingboard.com/tutori...g-t300467.html

Since the main blocks are heart shapes, I thought it was appropriate to name the quilt "Valentine Candy."

This is just gorgeous. I am in another swap now but would love to join this next year if it's held.
