Sugar Pop and Sour Apple Drops

I have had only limited time this weekend to sew. I find that if I miss out on my Saturday fix of sewing, I get a bit fidgety and my pile of fabric seem to pile up with the next weeks fabric deliveries..(I'm always on the lookout for something)

I had bought another charm pack some time ago 'Sugar Pops' by Moda.
I wanted to buy the FQ bundle of this product but decided to buy a charm pack first and see if I liked the fabric. All my fabric purchases are bought online and at times I do buy something and then am disappointed when I get it.
I do find it hard sometimes to pick fabric myself and choose individual fabric for a quilt. Although the fabric stash is growing each week that goes by, I seem to still buy bundles that are pre cut.

I do like 'Sugar Pops', It's so bright and happy. It took me a while to decide what to make out of it but in the end, I chose to cut the charm pack into triangles with a splash of Kona Solid fabrics.
I haven't tried to sew a quilt like this before so it was certainly an experience in itself.

As the quilt front was whipped up in no time (another crib quilt) I took the afternoon off and zipped over to the local haberdashery store to pick up a few essentials that were running low and a quick detour to the sweet store for bag of sour apple drops. ( A surprise for the hubby.)

Quilted and binded didn't take too much time and before I knew it the quilt was finished. I sat back and let myself suck on a sour apple drop while looking at what I had created. I was happy with the end product and will return to this pattern again...maybe on a larger scale.
Now I do have a confession to make.....I found a Fat Eights bundle online last month, so yes I will be using this fabric collection again sometime soon.
Have a very happy sewing week!


  1. I love it! I'm am really loving half square triangles lately so this is right up my ally. I love the colors and really like the solids you used. I have to say I'm a bit jealous that you buy fabric every week! Oh the possibilities! :)

  2. Cute quilt! Sugar Pop is a very fun line, and I think it looks great in a baby quilt. Sour apple candy is my favorite!

  3. It's lovely - the simple design shows off the fabric at it's best. Looks fab.

  4. Very nice. It looks like sour apples!

  5. I love it. The triangles and colours all complement each other perfectly.

  6. That's a lovely quilt - gives me some idea what to do with my own charm pack!

  7. Oooh what a bright and fresh quilt! This pattern is great for a fast whipup...thank you sharing!
