Welcome to Step 10 of making your Candy Corn Sampler!
Thanks for sharing pics on our FB group, Sewing With Susan!
After making today’s blocks, you’ll be 2/3 done with your Candy Corn Sampler!
Step 10 is 1 Mini Dresden plate block…
Refer to page 15, to make the Mini Dresden plate.
The hardest part of this block was deciding what color of thread to appliqué the block to the background with because I used a cheddar & a black fabric for the petals.
In the end I decided on my best friend in threads.
I use Sulky’s Medium Taupe 733-1180 thread almost every time I make a Dresden plate with multiple fabrics.
I pieced & appliquéd this entire Dresden Heaven quilt with Medium Taupe.
It blends well with light, medium & dark fabrics.
It also blends well with many colors, not just neutrals.
This is a good time to make the filler blocks if you’ve not already made them.
Find the flying geese blocks on page 16.
Half-square triangles can be found there too if you didn’t make them yet.
We’re back to needing these today.
Also more time for fabric play…
Fun, fun, fun!
Tamara added some pizzazz to the petals of this block!
I love the rick rack prints in this collection. Who am I kidding? I love this whole collection by Need’l Love!
