Look at all those candies!!! Nice job WMUTeach! My October candies are not in the mail, yet. Dish washer broke, carpet cleaners arrived, house is in total upheaval..... My son and family are moving in this week while their house is being built. I hope to get to the post office tomorrow but I make no promises! All my quilt stuff has taken over a wall of the garage. It is now buried behind furniture, lol. No playing with candies or boom blocks for me anytime soon...

Such a lovely quilt, WMUTeach! All those candies just keep the eye moving across the quilt. It's like a giant I Spy.

Sewbiz, the Fading Charms quilt is 68 inches square.

I went searching for my first version of the quilt and found one from 2014. I think these little candies were from the first Birthday Swap. I don't recall if it was 2012/2013 or 2013/2014. All I know for sure is that I finished the quilt in 2014. I see I did that one pretty scrappy too. Between then and now I have done one in purples and I am thinking another in red, white and blue.

Below is the 2014 version. The gal I gave it to uses is to this day and comments from time to time about how much fun she has looking at all of the prints and patterns in the little squares. I think I left the novelty prints in the pile. Now I pull novelty prints out and use them for children's quilts or just a random touch of silliness in adult donation quilt.

Happy quilting and playing with your candies.

Another beautiful quilt! Wow, candies can do a bunch.

I got my three bday girls' cards mailed off today. Woohoo for October babies!

I love that one, WMUTeach! “Growing Up Odd”, isn’t it? It’s been on my bucket list for years. Very lovely execution.

The quilt I pictured above is Fading Stars. "Growing up Odd" is my avatar! I have made three of those and have one more on my "To Do" list for an old friend who commented on my avatar. The pattern is written for 2" squares but is easily translated to 2.5's. It gobbles up 2.5's and makes an interesting finish.

Macybaby, I have seen that pattern and it is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S . I am anxious to see your end result! And all the steps along the way!
