My Candy Wrappers Quilt
I'm happy to have another original quilt in McCall's Quick Quilts Magazine. The October/November 2017 issue to be exact. The Candy Wrappers quilt finishes 49 X 53 inches.
I was especially happy to be able to use the fabulous Chalk & Paint fabric by Carolyn Hulse for Art Gallery Fabrics. This quilt is a great option for using larger-motif fabrics.
I quilted this one using HQ Pro-Stitcher (of course) using one of my favorite motifs -- Modern E2E from Wasatch Quilting.
The piecing is deceptively simple -- large (9-inch) hourglass blocks and small hourglass blocks (for the sashing between the big hourglass blocks). The only tricky part is making sure you use the correct fabrics in the sashing. You don't even need to match triangles in the sashing because that happens automatically when you make the small hourglass units. Yay!
This issue is in stores now. But you can preview the issue here.
