Moda Candy Hexagons

I have discovered a great use for Moda Candy, those tiny 2.5" fabric packs. They work perfect with the 1" hexagon papers. I took 2-100 paper packs and 2 Moda Candy (Comma and Happy Go Lucky).

I packed them for our road trip to Portland Quilt Market and blew through the 2 Candy packs in a few hours.
Lucky for me on Day 2 of market we found out if you quietly ask the designers at their booth they sometimes have Candy samples to give you. I ended up with about 8. I am keeping 3 and the rest is going into our Quilt Market Giveaway bundle.

You can see Potluck by American Jane mixed in there. I am so excited that she is rereleasing some of her past prints and we ordered the whole line plus precuts. We all told Sandy Klomp how much we love her fabric lines. She was very kind to our gushing.

I just cracked open the latest by Sweetwater and we ordered that line too.

Below is my handwork bag and it held all my goodies, thread, needles, tiny scissors and papers.  You might remember this bad from a Christmas post I did about bags I made as gifts. I kept a few extras (one for myself and one if I needed a gift).

About our Quilt Market Giveaway; I received about 21 signed books. I will be keeping 3 to make shop samples with and the rest I am giving to you! We will be giving away one book a day for a week and a few will be in our Grand Prize Bundle. The rest I think will be given to people who sign up for our Lori Holt Retreat in June. First come first served.

We are working on how to pull this off and will be starting with our first day this week so make sure you come back. It is going to be lots of fun. And boy, do we have some stories to share.

  1. That's so awesome! I want to learn how to make these! I can't wait to hear your stories! I've been following on IG and all the pictures I've seen make me swoon. Oh how I wish I could have been there! I hope you had a great time!

  2. Love! I never thought of using those tiny pack for this but I have a hexie quilt in the planning stages and may have to do this!


  3. please share a tutorial on how you used these for hexies

  4. Wendy, I will see about making a tutorial on my hexie technique and how I put them together in this quilt
