Candy Stars is finished. Hand pieced and machine quilted. The last stitch in the binding was taken late Sunday and the photo shoot happened out on the roof garden yesterday afternoon. Having such good weather and being able to take photos outside is great as the colours in the little quilt show up so much better.
I found this fabric in my stash for the backing of the little quilt.

It’s rather amazing to think there are over 930 pieces in a little quilt that measures 20″ x 26″. Now I can’t wait to get it on its way to its new home and hopefully see a picture of it on the doll bed!
I couldn’t have made this little quilt without Inklingo. I used shapes from two collections to make it – the .75″ 45-degree diamonds from the 6″ Hunter’s Star collection and the .75″ squares and octagons from the .75″ Octagon collection. Having the perfect stitching lines and matching points makes piecing tiny shapes like this absolutely painless – no worries about precision at all. Just print, cut and stitch.
