Q&A with dottyeb

clarissa asked:
I love it very good job////
dottyeb answered:
Thanks. It is a fun quilt.
Twizzler2 asked:
Love it! Are the pieces of candy applique?
dottyeb answered:
No. The center is a 'snowball block', and the ends are gathered as in my previous post. If you look at the instruction page I copied, it show how each candy wrapper block goes together. It takes 3 candy wrapper blocks to make a single quilt block. You can also see that layout diagram in the photographed instructions I included.
grama j asked:
Is that just a fold or a pleat at the of the wrapper ends?
dottyeb answered:
It is slightly gathered. Each rectangle for each end is folded in half, right sides together and stitched on the ends. Then turned right side out and gathered to fit the same color end on the center 'snowball block'.
PIckledLoops asked:
