I got side tracked!
I was cleaning off the sewing machine table after doing some Christmas sewing (which by the way I finished) and I came across this pattern that I copied some time ago.
It's' a free pattern offered by Christa Quilts and I thought it would be perfect for the fabric I bought a few years ago for a challenge quilt with the theme of it being candy/candy bar. Mine was going to be Good'n'Plenty....one of my favorite candies.
Well, as you can imagine, that never got done other than buying fabric. I don't even remember what pattern I was going to use at the time either.
These are the fabrics that I have and I gave one block a try and I think I am really going to like this one. It's going to be fun and bright. Plus, I can get this out of my stash and feel good about it, too.
Well, since recently purchasing the Accuquilt Studio2 die cutter, I thought....why not? Cut it out. It will take no time at all.
The only dies I have at this point are the strip dies, so thankfully I had the 2 1/2" die; and it did take no time at all.
I think I will need a few more fabrics....maybe some solids in pink, black and white and then maybe one more white with pink or black dots. I'll see what I can't find.
I do need to get this house in order; a few more packages wrapped AND food needs to be prepped, but I plan on being ready to start whipping this quilt together as soon as I have the time.
Fun, fun, fun......I can't wait.
