Sugar Candies Mini Quilt

You may remember a short while back I wrote a post about a pattern I was testing for Nadra at Ellis and Higgs well, the pattern has finished being tested and today I am allowed to show you my finished version of this very pretty little quilt.



It is called 'Sugar Candies'.  All the different versions which Nadra's pattern testers made are being shown over on Nadra's blog today.  Why not pop over and have a look at them all... there is plenty of variety!



I made mine using some bright fabrics that I found in my stash which I think worked well with the pattern design.  Nadra's pattern instructions were very clear to follow and the little quilt went together very quickly and easily.



I machine quilted it using my walking foot and, I was very pleased with how the quilting looked.



Nadra is shortly opening a new online shop where this and, some of her other patterns will be available.  Why not pop over and take a look?
