Sugar Candies Mini

Thursday, May 7, 2015

Shortly after joining Instagram, I found Nadra Ridgeway of Ellis & Higgs. She lives in Germany and her website is translated from German. She is a pattern and fabric designer. After designing her Sugar Candies Mini quilt pattern, she needed a few people to test the pattern. I loved testing the Hexies a la Mode quilt, so I was eager to try another pattern!

I wanted to use fabrics from my stash, so I chose to use the pastel fabrics left over from making my starflower baby quilt.

I used embroidery floss to tie little bows on each candy. I did not have all the colors I wanted, so I used white floss and "dyed" it with watered down acrylic paints. They dried quite stiff. It worked well for a photo, but I'm sure the colors wouldn't be permanent long-term.

I really enjoyed testing Nadra's pattern and am actively searching for more pattern testing opportunities!

  1. Aw, the pastel colour use in the quilt makes it looks so adorable. If I had the patience to make something like this I would definitely try my hands on it.
