Colored Candies - A Modern One-Block Quilt

Kathleen and I have been doing so good remaking the quilts in our new book, Modern One-Block Quilts, we've been making them in order, starting at the beginning of the book. This time we skipped ahead a little bit, we couldn't help it, Kathleen came up with the idea to re-make Colored Candies in a Valentines Day version. :)

When we originally made and designed this quilt it reminded me of Skittles or Starburst candies, but when it came time to re-make Kathleen got the idea to re-make it inspired by Conversation Hearts. I love how it turned out!
We designed 26 Conversation Heart inspired embroidery files for this version, you can purchase them here, on our website.
I machine quilted this version of Colored Candies with one of our new digital pantograph patterns, Polka Dots
Long-arm quilters can purchase that pattern here.
We may have been a little bit out of control taking pictures of this one, oh well, who doesn't love a little eye-candy! :)
This is the original version of Colored Candies, I think it's so much fun to see the original versions next to the new re-made versions. It's kinda crazy how much different they look from each other.
I custom machine quilted the original version. Here is a close up of my machine quilting.
