Default Valentine Candy

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: Birthday swap 2017/2018....... Sign Up. 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: Candy Dresden Wall Hanging/Mug Rug

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