Candy Stix Quilt

Here's the finished quilt for my niece! Woo-hoo! I know she is going to love it. A few of us from my small online DJ group swapped the Candy Stix blocks and I set them with the string blocks and backed it with flannel.
The blocks directions came from the Empire Quilters Guild blog and was designed by Karen Griska. In the quilt they showed online the blocks were set directly next to one another. It was a fun happy quilt.

These are a few of my favorite blocks and fabrics.


  1. She's going to absolutely love it - it's delightful. :-)

  2. I like it. That is a really neat assorment of fabrics. And you got it done on time!!
