Fabric Friday - Using Moda Candy

29 comments
Remember I recently got this Moda Candy Bar at Pine Needles when visiting with my friends.
I've been thinking about ways I can use these 2 1/2" x 5" candy rectangles.
One idea came to me while cutting 5" long dresden strips. They are absolutely the perfect size.
With very mimial waste these little rectangles can be cut with my wedge ruler to create . . .
something like this. I've also got a few other ideas in mind. I'll share them with you if the ideas prove worthwhile. I'm really liking this shape of pre-cut.

Happy Weekend.

I love the Dresden plate block and think it would make a perfect tablemat with a vintage teapot sitting in the center of it. :-)
I'm going to have to go shopping for some Moda candy and a wedge ruler. It's all your fault.... hee hee!

I haven't seen the candy bars here yet but I'm pretty sure I'll love them and calorie free is the best part.

You make the most adorable projects! That dresden just couldn't be any cuter. I'm going to have to be on the lookout for the candy samplers, so far they're not in local shops.

Happy Quilting =)
