Moda Fabrics makes these mini charm packs, aptly called Moda Candy. I can’t resist candy! I bought two packs of Moda Candy and went on a Half Square Triangle making spree. I didn’t really have a plan in mind for these and so once I got those HSTs made, they were forgotten.
Two weeks ago, I was sorting through my WIPs. I found some projects that need the ruthless treatment i.e., rip-rip-rip. I’ve totally lost steam with these projects, better to salvage the yarn and start over with something fresh.
During my “organizing”, I found the forgotten stack of half square triangles. Half the work was already done and that’s always a good thing. I sewed them into 9 patch units and arranged them in a diamond pattern.
I love how this fabric line has a mix of geometric patterns and sweet florals.
I got sewing those patches together and just like that, I had a mini quilt top done!
I didn’t dawdle with the finishing this time (ahem, still hand binding that mega quilt!). After seeing spiral quilting everywhere lately, I’ve been meaning to try it out. This mini was the perfect trial project. Using these tutorials, I decided to go for it and it worked!
The rest was quick. Binding attached, knots buried, loose threads clipped and here it is, my new mini quilt 🙂
