Finished Top: Crackle Candy

I am calling it Crackle Candy for now.

The top was made from a pile of miscellaneous scraps received in hand-me-down bags over several years. I was certain there was a quilt in there somewhere, but how to efficiently use so many different bits and pieces?

The answer was to incorporate a variety of block styles. There are six in all…can you find them?

HINT: One block only appears one time. I would change that if I did it again.

Sparkle Jane String Quilt

Sparkle Jane (Daughter) wanted to try out a new technique–foundation string piecing.

She using the tan as a constant diagonal line in the blocks, adding random strips of controlled scrappy colors as she went along.

Narrow sashing between the blocks finished it off.

She enjoyed the technique, but didn’t love the colors.  But, it was worth finishing, and it is finished, and that (as we all know) is good.
