Candy Stars Tutorial! Use those Mini Charm Packs for a Fab Mini Quilt!

We're LOVING this new Candy Stars tutorial on the Moda Bake Shop Blog! Chrissy Lux of Sew Lu Fabric got into her candy stash to create this modern and classic design using Moda's Candy pre-cuts...which are adorable Mini Charm Packs! This mini quilt using fun 2.5" x 2.5" squares is a perfect project for using modern solids or for playing with a fun new collection of prints!
Besides being abnormally adorable (who doesn't LOVE TINY THINGS??), Mini Charm Packs are really affordable and easy to collect! For this project, you'll make two blocks - a variable star and a simple 4 patch and you'll need 76 mini charms. BUT you can easily adapt this design to be any size you want, just add some more pretty candy!!

If you're using solids, get your colors sorted and separated! Then start working on the placement for you 4-patch squares...those go together SO quickly!

LOVE this 9 patch! Simple yet high impact is achieved with color selection!!


And it looks just as magical in a scrappy style with some pretty prints!! So if you've been eyeing these cute little pre-cuts, now you've got a great excuse to grab a few packs next time you're at the shop! OR shop all our of mini charm packs online! This project is so fun, so simple and easily made doesn't get much better than that right?? Thanks to Chrissy for sharing this cute tutorial!
