Bloggers Quilt Festival

I am joining in the Bloggers Quilt Festival that is being held by Amy .

The quilt I am sharing is my recently finished "Candy Shoppe".

It's quite a large single quilt measuring 66"x 90"


It is made with a jelly roll of Hushabye by Tula Pink and is teamed with four co-ordinating solids. It is a simple design and is jazzed up with custom quilting that I have done on my Longarm. For the binding I used a pink and brown stripe that gave it the final "Candy Shoppe" look.


I am really happy with how this turned out. As a Mum of 3 boys, anything pink and pretty is very special to me. The colours remind me of mashmallows, mints & chocolate. The perfect candy shop fair.


Thanks for looking at my pretty quilt and Thanks to Amy for her hard work to let us all share our passion.
Now I'm going to have a look at all the other beauties that have joined in the festival.

Happy Quilting
Leanne

I love this fabric line and actually used it in my last quilt so I had to pop over to see what you'd done with it. Your quilt is completely beautiful and reminds me exactly of a candy shop!

You did asuch a fabulous job I kind of wish I had some more of that fabric stashed so I could shamelessly copy your quilt!
