Candy Squares

Project Description

What are you most proud of? To have completed the project fairly fast. I had the top assembled three days after the start of the project which is very fast for me. The quilting part is still the challenging one. Also, I will give this quilt to my (adult) daughter, to cuddle on her couch in the evening. Her couch is black, and this should be lovely with her modern-looking furniture. What advice would you give someone starting this project? To pay attention when cutting and assembling the top, especially when chain piecing. Organizing your work area before each step will help you avoid mistakes and frustration. When quilting, relax! Use all the gadgets that you have at your disposal (rulers, etc.) to space lines if it will make it easier on you. But allow some mistakes, especially when quilting on a small machine. However, I would also concentrate on stitching in the same direction and complete first one side before starting on the other one if selecting the cross-hatch pattern. But most of all, enjoy yourself!!!!

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric from Craftsy kit for Candy Squares workshop. White cotton thread for assembling and quilting.
