Some of my Quilts #11 - Candy Bar Quilt

July 29, 2015

This is the eleventh post in a series of posts about my pre blog quilts.  Check out the rest of them here.

Candy Bar Quilt

This is one of my favourite quilts I've made.  I mean it has Bliss (Bonnie and Camille) in it what isn't to love?!? I also love Breakfast at Tiffanys (Fig Tree and Co), thankfully by some fluke they ended up on the same side so they often end up both displayed over the couch.  The other two lines are Fandango (Kate Spain) and City Weekend (Oliver + S).  

Candy Bar Quilt

I bought all these in a candy bar pack (2.5"x5") years ago from my LQS.  From there I ended up using the mixed nuts pattern from the booklet included.  It was orignally designed as a mini quilt but I made four (one from each fabric line) bordered them with a small border and them sashed them all together with a wide sashing.

The backing fabric is from Spotlight (as normal) and the binding is a red and white spot.  Is there really anything better than a red and white spot or a black and white stripe binding?
