Candy Corn-A Free Motion Quilt Tutorial
Good Morning, Candy Corn Lovers!
You know who you are! The ones who have already bought your Halloween candy because it’s on sale…
Or to use as a decoration around the house…???
Today’s tutorial has zero (insidious) calories…THE CANDY CORN FREE MOTION QUILT TUTORIAL
This motif would look adorable on any Halloween or Autumn quilt. Use it as border, or jumble them up and create a background fill…
Begin by drawing two parallel lines. In the tutorial below, the lines are 1-1/4 inches apart. Much larger would look great…smaller might be a challenge to stitch.
Begin stitching on the bottom line. Stitch up at an angle and create a curved point. Stitch down from the top line 4-5 stitches.Stitch a shallow curve to the left side of the Candy Corn, then stitch back.Stitch down at an angle to create the right side of the Candy Corn, then stitch a shallow curve and back again.Stitch down several more stitches, then stitch another shallow curve to create the bottom of the Candy Corn. Stitch back to begin the next piece of candy in the chain.
Stitch a row of Candy Corn–altering the angle occasionally for a more interesting (and natural) look.
Hope your Halloween is filled with more Treats than Tricks!
