Perhaps you might snatch a few pieces for inspiration for today’s tutorial: Sweet Candy!
THE SWEET CANDY FREE MOTION QUILT TUTORIAL
Begin by drawing two lines or “rails”…just to keep things tidy. In the practice piece below, the lines are two inches apart.
Begin stitching inside the drawn lines. Stitch a rounded rectangle.
Stitch along the length of the rectangle, curve back and forth and stop on the outer right edge of the rectangle.
Repeat the squiggly line, the wavy triangle and the loops inside the triangle.
Then stitch out and under the piece of candy.
SWEET! The first piece of candy is ready to EAT!
OR …change the shape of the candy...
Also, use this pattern as an All-over motif by adjusting the lines connecting the candy.
(Tootsie Rolls— for ME!)
May YOUR stitches be sweet,
