Like so many of you, I love candy corn and especially when it's mixed with salted peanuts. I also just like the look of candy corn. I mean, it's colorful......orange, yellow, white.....it's just plain bright and cheerful!!
I loved that candy corn fabric that my swap partner Cheryl used in the totebag swap and got lucky enough to find the same fabric at JoAnn's. And that's when I thought........oh, that would look so cute with that 'Happy Jack's" fabric (by Alexander Henry) if I made it up in Pat Sloan's blog hop pattern "Wishing Well"......and that's what I did..........
It turned out so cute, that I think it's sweet as candy corn! I know you're not supposed to "crow about things" but I just love how this turned out! I found the perfect flecked orange and some scraps of a perfect vintage yellow in my stash and they look just like candy corn - almost good enough to eat! I love how this looks on my table and at Halloween, I'll replace the flowers with a big ceramic pumpkin filled with candy for the "Trick-or-Treating" kiddies.
I stitched this up last weekend. I was actually looking for fabrics for the tablerunner that I shared on my blog yesterday, when I got the idea to use these fabrics on Pat's pattern. It was super easy and I made it in just one afternoon/evening. The quilt is just "stitch in the ditch" because I wanted to see all these fabrics. Now if you want to make one, too, just pop over to Pat's blog and you will find a link on this post that will give you all the info on Pat's free patterns. Pat made her sample in a cottage rose print and come spring, I have some rosy-posy fabrics that would also look good in this lay-out. In the meantime, since Halloween will soon be over and Christmas is just around the corner.......I've pulled out the sweetest peppermint candy fabric that will be my 6-1/2" square on a Christmas themed table runner. When you see a post titled "A Peppermint Treat", you'll know it's finished!
I was going to show you an "in-progress" Halloween project but I have not really made much progress today. LOL! Some unplanned things called my name and I only got a wee bit of sewing done but that's okay because ....... tomorrow is just a day away. :-)
Happy weekend everyone!
