Our version has (dog-eared) cards - some of the new versions have spinners instead.
I sat down with the Candy Land cards and my Kona color card and picked out a stack of fabric: Lipstick, Orange, Yellow, Clover, Cyan, Purple and (how appropriate!) Candy Pink. I chose Kona Snow for the background. This made me a little nervous - I don't use a lot of white in my quilts, and this is a baby quilt for a friend. I feel a little bad gifting a white baby quilt... but I think this really calls for a white background. I'll wrap up a bottle of stain stick with the quilt. Here's what the project looked like last week:
And here's what it looks like this week:
So far I'm loving it. I have one more row of tiles in progress. I want to keep this simple so I think I'm going to limit the quilt to three rows of tiles with a lot of background space. I'm planning some curved line quilting, maybe free-motion but probably guided by my walking foot.
Carrie, I love your idea! Enjoyed Candy Land as a kid and you are right, the game board is a great inspiration for color and design.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing it done.
Oh, what a wonderful idea. (I may need to copy it someday.) Our kids loved Candyland, and when the grandkids came along, I ordered an old version of the game for them because I just couldn't bring myself to buy a game with just a spinner.ReplyDelete
