A new quilt 'Candy Box'

Hi There.....

I hope you all are staying healthy and safe.  

I'm enjoying sewing time at home and quality time with my husband.  Even though he's at his desk working all day but we have a great time taking lunch together.  We talk more and I really feel at ease having him around.  I have to cook more, yes, but I love it.  When he signed off from work, we walk with our dog in the nearby park everyday.  At the beginning, I think our dog was confused why he's home all day!!  Now he's loving it too.

I'm starting a new project.  It will be an unplanned and totally improv quilt.  No pattern in mind and design as I go kind of quilt.  As you may find out from my previous projects that I absolutely love curved triangles.  I will use scraps from old projects and make lots of curved triangle blocks and see what will happen.  The colors will be orange, yellow, grays, green, black and white.  These colors are the most in my scrap box.

I have started some and here they are on the design wall.

My daughter said it reminded her of a box of mixed chocolates or candies.  I really like that so I'll call this quilt 'Candy Box'.

I'll be working on this for the OMG for May.  I'll at least finish the top in May.

Stay calm and quilt on......


  1. LOVE how this one is starting off!! The bits of orange bring forth a sense of added warmth. I like Candy Box even better than Subtraction! I didn't think that was possible.

  2. You new piece is so much fun!!

  3. This project certainly has great promise - it's very striking! And I feel the same about this stay at home stuff. Now we have all three meals together, and we're both being more productive. Funny how that is.

  4. Questo lavoro è bellissimo!!!!!!

  5. Love these oranges with the black and white. Reminds me of the burning orange sun peeking up over the horizon at the break of day. Have fun with this one!

  6. I just love this improv design! It will be a great great quilt! I will be checking back the end of May for your finish!

  7. Love this. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project.

  9. Love you for this
