Celebrate Christmas with the Quilting Gallery

Celebrate Christmas with the Quilting Gallery

hey welcome to Blue Nickel Studios for the Quilting Gallery Christmas Quilt Along….

My block is called Christmas Candy….I was  inspired by those really pretty old-fashioned Christmas candies that look great in a bowl, but very few people ever eat?  Here is the PDF for you to make your own version.  Would love it if you do make something with this block to add it to my Blue Nickel Flickr page here.

Here are a  couple of pictures to go with the Mini-interview at Quilting Gallery.

Playing with fabric before making the block….most are from Kate Spain’s Flurry.

I mentioned my favorite quote from a print by Mary Engelbreit.   Here is a picture of the sheet from Home Companion and another picture that declares “One person’s mess is merely another person’s filing system”  I make myself feel better with that second one, but it doesn’t really fool my wife who gave it to me to begin with.

Here are a few close-ups from my favorite quilt that I mentioned at Quilting Gallery:

Hope you like the block…please be sure to drop a picture in here if you make something with it….and remember solids/prints, whatever….it all works!!

  • Hi, I love your block and I am one of the weird people that actually looks for that old fashioned candy and loves it. LOL I am a new quilter/sewer and I like the simplicity of your block and can see it used with a wide variety of the fabrics I am acquiring in FQ’s. Thanks.
