Description

This is the June project for our Little Quilts sew Along here on Threadbias.

The Pattern is called Candy is Dandy. I used Mochi by Rashida Coleman-Hale for cotton+steel. Mochi is a sweet sticky rice in Japan and its made into a lot of cute shapes, and there's mocha ice cream etc... so it seemed a good fit for the design.

The back is Mochi and a FQ in fuschia- think it is Art gallery- very soft and silky fabric.

I'm at the quilting stage- think I'll try for something swirly like the original but definitely not as intricate.


Update 6/1   - Finished:)- I wound up quilting just about every inch of this- basically quilted within an inch of its life you might say. It took more time but I really wanted to get the texture on it.

I love this fabric line too and it's perfect for this project. Thanks too for the tips on doing it with HSTs. Not sure if I'll get to this one or not but you make me want to try! PS - Introduced my son to mochi while we were in Hawaii last week.

Mymble

He's such a ham - and ever since Princess died...he's been like a ship without a rudder - he lays on us - even when we're asleep, the rest of the time lays around asking for love and affection...he needs a cat whisperer 
