Candy twists

It's that time of the month again; Quilt Now Issue 4 is on the shelves in UK shops. The beautiful cover quilt is by the very talented Jessie Fincham and I'm seriously tempted to try one myself.
This month's block of the month uses the tube technique commonly used for Scrappy trips - quick and easy :)
 I was thrilled to discover that Katy managed to squeeze in the BOM project too, so it's not only available online this month. Who doesn't need a hessian present sack?!
There's also an easy peasy quilt by yours truly between the covers this month - Candy Twists.
I love the styling with that cute cot. I used the rather lovely Winter's Lane by Kate and Birdie Paper Co for my version of Candy Twists. It's such a great line from last year and the colour palette says winter without the overt novelty element that can sneak in to Christmas fabrics. Sorry for using the C word, it's still a bit early in the year to be using that word. 
I'm hoping to get chance to sew up a variation of this design in some brighter colours...
Catch you soon x 


  1. Your wee quilt is so pretty!! My subscription is finished so I'll need to hunt out this issue - the holly wreath mini is brilliant!

  2. So sweet. Winter's lane was my favourite Christmas line last year. x

    1. Sorry, I should also have said I liked what I can see here of your projects though!


Lovely comments read with glee everyday.
