Candy Wrappers: Quick & Sweet Quilt Pattern

Twists of scrappy, scrumptious color! What a treat! Nancy’s cute, easy throw quilt pattern combines simple blocks and sashing strips to make a cool, modern quilt that’s perfect for those favorite fat quarter bundles you’ve been holding on to. Each block uses a single print paired with the solid background fabric. The center sashing unit 1’s combine two different prints with the background fabric and the edge sashing unit 2’s use a single print with the background fabric, so block placement must be decided before you start sewing the units in order to create the cohesive design. Units are made in matching sets of 3. A vertical design wall will be helpful for arranging blocks, deciding block placement and constructing sashing units. Note that the side borders are wider than the top and bottom borders. The blocks and units are all made with quarter-square triangles. Handle all bias edges carefully to avoid distortion. Pressing squares with starch before cutting them diagonally can help prevent bias edges from stretching.
