I went to the alphabet blocks and found a couple that I thought might work.
After some playing, I realized I couldn't nicely just add the candy cane stripes. So I decided to just start from scratch and create the blocks in Easy Draw.
My video tutorial this week will share with you how to draw these candy cane blocks for yourself.

MN Quilters 2018 Mystery
Who doesn't like a good mystery? What about a quilt pattern that will be presented over the next year?
I created a really fun quilt (using Electric Quilt) entitled Flight of Fancy. This was designed specifically for Minnesota Quilters, who has exclusive rights to present the pattern for 2018.
The quilt is a traditional design (with no curved piecing or applique). You can choose the size you want to make: Small is 66" x 78", Medium is 66" x 90", and Large is 90" x 90".
When you register, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the introduction and fabric choice instructions so you can be ready when you receive your first clue at noon on January 1, 2018!
You also have the option to join a private Facebook group administered by MN Quilters where you can ask questions and share progress. I have joined the Facebook group and plan to participate in the discussion.
