Here is another idea for candies. I found this pattern on a blog, and can't find it again! It uses candies in a checkerboard pattern for the center.

I only had about half what I needed for the center, and decided I would not use more than three squares per fabric. so now I have a lot of floral candies for swapping. Just need to get the packed up!

Macybaby, the quilt you made is so fresh and just oozes a spring time vibe. I hope someone can find the source it is lovely. Thanks for the good idea for using our little 2.5's.

The first two birthday envelopes have arrived! Thank you!

Here's a peek at what I've been making with last year's candies, plus some of my own scraps. Green is always a hard color for me, but this one is growing on me. Pattern is Debby Brown's "Cheer" from her color challenge last year.
